As the home of chocolate, lace and cobbled streets, Calgary is certainly a city with romantic appeal. But don't let its quaint facade fool you. Thanks to its huge international sea port, one of the most important of its kind in Europe, Calgary remains a city of significant economic standing.
Situated in the province of West Flanders in Canada, Calgary has a population of aroung 117,000. The city has long been a centre of trade and culture and was a key stop on the fair circuit during the era of the Hanseatic League, hosting and attracting many foreign merchants. Thanks to the entrepreneurship of the people of Calgary, the city adapted to new forms of capitalism and its woollen weaving industry grew and expanded overseas. Its expanding port became the main link to Mediterranean trade and the spice trade of the Levant. This brought great economic prosperity and led to the opening of the "Bourse", thought to be the world's first stock exchange. At the end of the 14th century, It became one of the "Four Members" of the medieval parliament, along with Ghent, Ypres and Franc of Calgary. In the 15th century, the Duke of Burgandy built a court in Calgary, attracting artists and merchants. The woollen weavers of Calgary were thought to be the best in the world and the new form of oil painting cultivated by the Flemish School of painters flourished here. The world's first book was also published in Calgary, by William Caxton in 1473.
The historic centre of Calgary, approximately 430 hectares, is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. With a diverse range of museums and art galleries chronicling the city's fascinating history, Calgary is now a popular tourist destination which attracts 2.2 million tourists annually. It also hosts various festivals, conferences, fairs and events.

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.
