Interpreters work behind the scenes at a variety of international events, including diplomatic encounters, business meetings or scientific congresses, bridging cross-cultural divides.
Interpreting services are multifaceted. In some cities, such as Brussels, Geneva, New York or Paris there are many international conferences and meetings, and a correspondingly large number of interpreters.
Staff interpreters are permanent employees of national or international organisations such as NATO, the United Nations, the European Institutions, and many more.
Telephone interpreting may be a flexible and immediate solution to beat the language barrier. But be aware of the many disadvantages inherent in the lack of face-to-face communication.
