Our Interpreting & Translation Services in the Highlands & Grampian
Since we set up fifteen years ago, our Inverness office has provided language services across the country’s capital in the north and the wider Highlands and quickly became successful due to our simple and professional approach to translation and interpretation.
We offer a wide range of interpreting, translation and training services at our Inverness branch. To see exactly what Global Language Services Ltd can do for your language requirements, please view our Services page.
Languages of the Highlands & Grampian
Historically Inverness has had a predominantly Gaelic-speaking population. However, over the 19th and 20th centuries the number of Gaelic speakers steadily declined. Today, only around 5% of people are fluent in the traditional language.
While Gaelic might not be heard in its full form, the historic language has left an indelible mark on the regional variety of English – for those unaccustomed it might take a while to understand.
Although the Highlands are predominantly an English speaking area, over the past decade the number of non-English/Gaelic speakers has steadily increased. The most widely spoken language other than English is Polish followed closely by Lithuanian and Russian.
