Oslo is the capital of Norway and its most populous city, with the metropolitan area inhabited by almost 1.5 million citizens. It is also Europe's fastest growing locality - the number of immigrants increasing more quickly than native Norwegians. The city ranks very highly in quality of life indexes and has often been named the most expensive city in the world. It is the seat of the Norwegian parliament, the Storting; home to The European Wergeland Centre, a newly opened centre for education for intercultural dialogue, human rights and democratic citizenship and a pilot city of the Council of Europe.
The Norwegian capital is also particularly significant within the maritime industry. Home to 8,500 maritime employees and over 1980 shipping companies, including some of the largest in the world, Oslo is infused with maritime history and culture which makes it truly international. In addition to this, it plays host to many important global events such as the Nobel Peace Prize ceremony, while remaining a European centre for banking, industry and culture. Indeed, there are many reasons why language experts may be required in this Scandinavian hub. Whatever these may be, Professional Translation is happy to help.

Simultaneous interpreting is most commonly used at conferences. It involves two interpreters working in partnership in a booth. They listen to the speaker via a headset and interpret into a microphone for the relevant audience members to listen to via headphones. As this can be very demanding, the interpreters take turns, swapping every 15-20 minutes.
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 to assist clients who require only limited assistance in the source language. They may need technical or especially complex terminology to be interpreted into their native tongue to avoid misunderstandings but are in general comfortable listening and speaking to the source language without aid. The interpreter stands by to support the client when he/she requires communication assistance.
Telephone interpreting allows parties who are not able to meet in person to communication via telephone or video conferencing. The interpreter bridges the language gap via the telephone. Sometimes the interpreter is present in one of the two locations, and sometimes he/she is also remotely located.
