Edinburgh 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, Edinburgh became an important industrial city, particularly for marine engineering and shipbuilding – and this tradition continues today. Other industries active in Edinburgh 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, Edinburgh is third in the UK after London and Edinburgh. It is also ranked within the top ten financial centres in Europe.
We are happy to cover other cities and local areas in United Kingdom.
Simultaneous 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 probably the most common type of interpreting and is widely used. It is used for business discussions, negotiations, contract exchanges, commercial discussions, legal, technical or engineering 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. If a speech is delivered, 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 stall or elsewhere.
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.
