Parliament also employs some 270 staff interpreters and has a pool of some 1 500 external accredited interpreters, frequently called upon to cater for its needs. This means that between 700 and 900 interpreters are on hand for Parliament’s plenary sessions, held once per month in Strasbourg (France). (See Figure 5). During the Covid-19 lockdown, Parliament introduced a unique online interpreting service, enabling Members to continue their work remotely.
