While “Ich bin ein Berliner!” has gone down in history as one of the most famous lines ever spoken by a U.S. president, it didn’t actually mean entirely what John F. Kennedy intended. Kennedy’s famous utterance literally translates to “I am a jam doughnut!” Hardly the message he wanted to convey in the wake of the Berlin Wall’s construction.


At Global Language Services Ltd, we know that when it comes to government work everything has to be absolutely perfect. Whether it’s accurate interpretation during international negotiations or reaffirming support in the local community, there are rarely any second chances. That’s why we make sure we get it right first time.


Over the past decade we have worked with a number of Scottish councils and currently act as the supplier of Gaelic interpretation and translation services to the Scottish Parliament. We have worked hard to establish Global Language Services as one of the premier language agencies in the country and believe that our successful track record backs this up.

From the very start our linguists work in collaboration with our customers, ensuring the final translation reflects both the meaning and emotional impact of the original message.


At Global Language Services Ltd, we understand the need for discretion, professionalism and care within the political arena. All of our language experts are recruited in accordance with quality standard ISO 9001:2008 and are fully trained in matters of confidentiality.
