I hate to tell you this but it is impossible for any terp to be 100% accurate 100% of the time. Why do you think professional terps are required to carry "malpractice" liability insurance?Liebling:-))) said:It's very very very important to be 100% prefect case everything goes wrong if there're one or two misunderstanding.
There're influence in Germany over interpreters, we demand 100% with no misunderstanding when there're important discussion like court, lawyer, notar, agreement contract etc.
