Interpretations
Interpretation and translation are very close, in the general concept of linguisitc and cultural mediation. However the interpreter is not a translator. They are two professions that need different skills, although are often confused with one another. The interpreter operates in different situations, not only in conferences, but also in other professional settings, where the effectiveness of the technology allows us to offer flexible solutions. (Do you need to explain what an interpretor is? Better to just explain what you offer)
Chosing the right interpretor depends on several factors: for example the language, the number of participants and the meeting place. We can help you find the most suitable solution for your needs. All our employees are native language interpretors, highly qualified and specialized. We are always available to support you at your stand at Bologna's fairs.
