Professional cover for language services

As a language professional, your job revolves around communication, which means you come into contact with people every day. Whether you’re translating from one written language to another or interpreting on the spot, you need a business insurance policy that keeps you covered. You can buy professional indemnity insurance as a stand-alone cover or combine it with other covers such as public liability insurance in one simple policy from Simply Business.

Building your policy

Your language business is likely to need public liability insurance, which provides cover if a member of the public makes a compensation claim against you. If someone is injured or their property is damaged and they blame your business, the court could demand that you pay compensation costs. For example if someone visited your office, tripped over a computer cable and sued you for the injury they suffered.

It’s also worth considering professional indemnity insurance, which covers you if a client demands compensation from you because they believe you’ve been negligent or made a mistake in your work. For example if you translated something incorrectly and the printed materials had to be pulped and then reprinted, the client could sue you to recover their costs. You can buy professional indemnity insurance as a stand-alone cover or as part of a combined policy. At Simply Business we offer between £50,000 and £5 million in professional indemnity cover.

There are several other covers you can choose to add to your policy too, including business equipment insurance and employers’ liability insurance.
