The largest city on the Mediterranean coast, Barcelona is also the second largest city in Spain and capital of the autonomous community of Catalonia. It has a population of 1.6 million within the city area and around 5 million within the metropolitan area, making it the sixth-most populous urban area in the European Union. In terms of per capita GDP, Barcelona is the fourth wealthiest city in the EU.
The city has long been a centre of culture, art and architecture. Around 8 million tourist flock to the city each year to see, among other sights, the great works of architect Antoni Gaudi which are scattered throughout the city.
Aside from tourism, the city’s economy is led by the service sector as well as industrial manufacturing. Main industries are textiles, chemical, pharmaceutical, motor, electronic, printing, logistics, publishing, telecommunications and information technology services.
Manufacturing in the area is dominated by the energy, chemical and metallurgy industries. The city has also become a centre for trade and business, and numerous world-class conferences and expositions are held in the city every year.
Barcelona is also an important European automobile manufacturing centre with the SEAT headquarters located in the suburbs.
We are happy to cover other cities and local areas in Spain.
Simultaneous interpreting is used for international conferences, critical business discussions, seminars & symposiums. In this case, there are usually two to three interpreters situated in a booth, away from the audience, who take turns to interpret at high speed, changing over every 15-20 minutes to avoid fatigue.
The interpreters use headsets to listen to the message of the speaker and repeat it immediately (practically "simultaneously") in the target language for the benefit of relevant audience members.
Consecutive interpreting is the most common type of interpreting. It is used for business discussions, negotiations, contract exchanges, commercial, legal, technical discussions, medical or court hearings or on site inspections. The interpreter listens to the speaker, often making notes, and delivers the meaning in the target language afterwards. The interpreter may wait until a pause or the end, at which point they deliver a translation relatively quickly. Consecutive interpreting may also be used at conferences for panel discussions, Q&A sessions or private discussions between parties - at a stand or elsewhere.
Facilitating interpreting is used to assist clients who require only limited assistance in the source language.
They may need technical or especially complex terminology to be interpreted into their native tongue to avoid misunderstandings but are in general comfortable listening and speaking to the source language without aid. The interpreter stands by to support the client when he/she requires communication assistance.
Telephone interpreting allows parties who are not able to meet in person to communication via telephone or video conferencing. The interpreter bridges the language gap via the telephone.
Sometimes the interpreter is present in one of the two locations, and sometimes he/she is also remotely located.
