Lisbon is the capital and largest city of Portugal, and the most westerly city in Europe. Perhaps surprisingly, it is also one of the oldest cities in the world – predating even Rome – with roots in the Neolithic era.
Today, Lisbon is the seat of the Portuguese government, and the country’s economic, commercial and cultural centre. Around 3 million people live in the Lisbon Metropolitan Area; this is around 27% of the total population of Portugal.
Lisbon is one of the most important ports in Europe, transporting both goods and passengers from its shores to locations across the world. The city is also very wealthy. It alone generates 45% of Portugal’s GDP. Dominated economically by the service sector, Lisbon is an important financial centre in Europe and is home to the Euronext Lisbon stock exchange.
The suburbs of the city are industrialised with automobile manufacturing, oil refineries and textile mills among the industries represented.
The city of Lisbon is rich in education and culture. Two universities and a number of higher education institutions attract thousands of students to the city. While the range of architectural styles represented here along with numerous museums, galleries, festivals and events attract visitors from all over the world.
Lisbon hosted the World Expo in 1998 and has remained a popular destination for conferences and trade fairs.
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.
