AIIC UK & Ireland -

Céad míle fáilte!
AIIC welcomes you to the Emerald Isle

Ireland boasts an active and diverse conference market – a remarkable achievement, considering that, with A POPULATION OF five million, it is one of the smallest countries in the European Union.


AIIC members in Ireland cover the main European languages and, when partnering with our regional colleagues in the UK, we can offer other languages such as Russian, Arabic, Chinese or Japanese.


Whilst some Irish members work for European institutions as well as European agencies based here and abroad, most are active on the private market and provide interpreting services to a wide range of international, national and local clients.

Are you new to the Irish market and tasked with staging a large multilingual event? Are you a local Irish entity or NGO looking to organise a transnational meeting? Are you a national business hosting a potential client from abroad? AIIC interpreters in Ireland are here to guide you every step of the way and ensure you benefit from effective, accurate and clear communication across different languages.

We always strive to promote the professional standards and working conditions that high-quality interpreting requires. All AIIC members have been subject to a rigorous peer-review admission process and fully adhere to the duty of confidentiality and the ethical principles set out in the AIIC Professional Standards and Code of Professional Ethics.

It is vital for interpreters to keep their skills and knowledge up to date through continuous professional development. To that end, AIIC UK & Ireland organises a number of thought-provoking events for the benefit of its members, the interpreting community as a whole, and a wider audience. Moreover, several members in the Region are involved in training the next generation of interpreters, thus contributing to securing high-quality multilingual communication for the years to come.

AIIC is the only global association of conference interpreters. Since the early days of modern conference interpreting, it has consistently promoted high standards of quality and ethics in the profession and represented the interests of its practitioners. It is an open and representative professional organisation of freelance and staff conference interpreters, with over 3,200 members in 100 different countries.
