Amsterdam is the capital and financial and commercial centre of The Netherlands. It began as a small fishing village built as a dam on the river Amstel, after which it is named. During the Dutch Golden Age the city expanded dramatically thanks to both trade links and the financial and diamond industries.
Nowadays, it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. Its culture, history and canals charm more than 4 million visitors and 16 million day-trippers each year. Many come to view the great collections of art housed in the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum and the Stedelijk Museum. Others are dazzled by the city’s rich architecture, which includes a wide variety of styles and periods, from Baroque and Neo-Gothic to Jugendstil (Art Nouveau) and Georgian.
The 17th century canals are another attraction, and are included on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Aside from its cultural interest, the city has been ranked an alpha world city and one of the best in Europe in which to locate a business. It’s South Axis (Zuidas) is now a legal and financial hub, which is home to some of the world’s leading multinational corporations, including 7 of the world’s top 100 companies.

What form/s of interpretation can
- Simultaneous interpreting. This kind of interpreting requires lots of skill and experience and can be very tiring for an interpreter, which is why it is common for two interpreters to work in partnership. They listen via a headset to the speaker and interpret what is being said into a microphone for the relevant audience members taking it in turns every 15/20 minutes. Simultaneous interpretation like this is commonly required at conferences that involve several different languages and a large number of participants.
- Consecutive interpreting is used for smaller events such as business meetings, discussions, court cases and hearings and other business visits. It may also be used during panel sessions at conferences. It involves the interpreter first listening (often making notes) and subsequently communicating the message into the target language when the speaker has either taken a pause, or when time is given for them to interpret. Consecutive interpreting is the most commonly requested form of interpreting. Consecutive interpreting may involve switching language direction often.
- Facilitating interpreting is used when a client has limited English / source language skills but requires technical or in depth terminology to be clarified in their native tongue to avoid misunderstandings. The facilitating interpreter is there primarily to ensure communication is effective and relieve the client from the fatigue of speaking in a foreign tongue.
- Telephone interpreting allows parties of different nationalities, who are not able to meet in person, to communication via telephone or video conferencing. The interpreter bridges the gap. Sometimes an interpreter is present in one of the two locations, and sometimes he/she is also located somewhere apart from both parties.
