Our Interpreting & Translation Services in Glasgow
Based in the beating heart of the Scottish economy, our Glasgow office is where we started our interpretation and translation journey all those years ago. Since we started over 17 years ago, we have steadily added languages and services to our portfolio and carved out a reputation as one of the country’s leading language agencies. An achievement we’re incredibly proud of.
Today we are happy to offer our services, in any language, to Glasgow businesses and organisations in need of assistance when communicating in foreign languages.
Glasgow is now more culturally diverse than ever and year-on-year the Glasgow population is becoming steadily more multilingual. Over the past decade, the number of languages spoken has increased dramatically with one of the reasons being the increasing numbers of international students from Europe, North America and China. The growing communities of individuals from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, and increasing immigration from new ‘accession’ member states to the European Union are also contributing to this rapid growth of languages in Glasgow.
A report from the Scottish Government set an estimate of the number of languages spoken in Glasgow at around 100 and that was a conservative estimate. Other numbers from NALDIC (National Association for Language Development in the Curriculum) show that Glasgow has by far the largest number of students who don’t have English, Gaelic, Scots, Doric or Sign Language as their first language. It has been found that an incredible 143 languages are spoken by children in Scottish schools and 115 languages just in Glaswegian schools, showing the number of languages spoken in Glasgow will only continue to increase.
