Interpreting Services in Birmingham

Life can lead you anywhere around our globalised world and sometimes you leave your home country to live abroad for various reasons. Living in a foreign country is not easy. There are a different cultures, different way of life, and often a different language. Like anyone, you can have issues that are out of your control and you can need help from a specialist. However, it is hard to find the right words in a language you are not fluent in. Therefore Birmingham Translation Agency and its interpreting service offer qualified and professional interpreters having received invaluable added value training courses provided by our experienced Management Team.

What is interpreting?

We often confuse interpreting and translating, thinking that interpreting and translating are the same task. However, there is only one characteristic that makes all the difference. Interpreting is converting orally one’s words into another language. Translating is converting in written form from a language into another.

Human-being created languages centuries ago in order to be able to communicate with their peers. Unfortunately, nobody created a common language and today we estimate the number of languages in the world between 5,000 and 6,000. Despite some similarities between some languages and dialects, it is hard to understand each other. That is why some people learn, in addition to their own language, another one.

Interpreters are the link between two human-beings, the bridge between two countries, two cultures and play an important role in our globalised world.
