I mean the people who translate at UN summits, like last September when Obama was there.
Also, do they get something extra when they have to translate someone like Ahmadinejad who rambles on for hours and leaves the interpreter wondering what "We will slap Americans in the face so hard that they will lose their way back home" is supposed to mean.
If you mean freelance interpreter check this table http://www.aiic.net/ViewPage.cfm/article175 . If you want to know how much staff interpreters earn, I'll let one of them answer you.
And we are paid the same whether the speaker rambles or not ;-)
