Glasgow is the largest city in Scotland and the country’s economic centre of Scotland. During the 18th century, the city was an important trade hub connecting the UK and the Americas, and receiving and shipping manufactured goods, sugar, cotton and tobacco. In fact, tobacco trade played an important role in the growth of the city.
Throughout the 19th century, Glasgow became an important industrial city, particularly for marine engineering and shipbuilding – and this tradition continues today. Other industries active in Glasgow include engineering, construction, brewing and distilling, printing and publishing, chemicals and textiles. Newer growth sectors include optoelectronics, software development and biotechnology.
Financial services also make up a large part of the Glaswegian economy, with “Wall Street on Clyde” – the city’s financial quarter – growing rapidly and attracting ever more businesses. In terms of GBP, Glasgow is third in the UK after London and Edinburgh. It is also ranked within the top ten financial centres in Europe.
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.
