|Description||The Hellenic Association of Conference Interpreters (SYDISE) is an association of professional interpreters who specialize in conference interpreting (simultaneous, consecutive and whispered interpreting). Members participate as independent interpreters -freelance professionals- who must meet objective admission requirements. All members must comply with social security and taxation obligations. The Association aims to provide collective representation to support and protect the interests of its members, as well as supply clients with practical information in order to promote a better understanding of the sector. SYDISE’s actions are guided by respect for the work of conference interpreters and its commitment to high standards in cooperation with other Greek and international associations and organisations in the industry sector.
SYDISE is a not-for-profit association and has its registered office in Athens. It was set up in 2014 by professional conference interpreters, who identified the need for a collective body dedicated to the specific interpreting sector across Greece. Its role is to act as an interface between its members on the one hand and the market and community in general on the other. It aims to play an informal regulatory role, both for practitioners and the market, providing ongoing information and training for all stakeholders.
