It is often considered that interpreters are just translators. However there is a difference between interpreters and translators. Translators work at their computer and do not participate in any direct communication situations. On the other hand, interpreters are present at the site where communication occurs and are directly involved and responsible for the interpretation, i.e. oral translation from one language to another.

These two occupations are nevertheless related to each other and, depending on the situation and proper training, they can be performed by the same person.

Interpreting requires a lot of practice, experience and general knowledge of the subject in order to participate in fluent conversation.

Knowledge of several foreign languages ​​does not necessarily mean that a person is able to successfully interpret. Interpreters are usually highly educated professionals with extensive experience who can perform the required service.

In addition to competence and education, congress and conference interpreters, must also have the impeccable manners. They have to know how to behave in an international environment and posses certain elegance.

Generally speaking, interpreters are reliable and discreet, as they are used to working with politicians, business people, representatives of international companies, ambassadors and many other high-ranking officials.

We are well aware of the fact that a professional interpreter hired by you represents your company, and we pay particular attention and care to this issue.

Translation is as old as languages, and the evidence of its existence dates back to 100,000 years ago. There is also evidence that translation as a profession existed in ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, but very little is known about the history of translation in general.

There were obviously situations where translation was needed. Considering European history with many countries at a relatively small area, it is clear that their mutual communication must have been assisted by translators.

There are numerous examples of monarchs and state leaders who regularly used interpreters while performing foreign affairs. Another example of translation in history is the former practice of exchange of children between European and Asian countries. This allowed them to grow up in a foreign country and learn a foreign language, thus enabling them to become interpreters later.

It is only in the 20th century that translation profession became what it is today. Simultaneous interpreting is the most modern form, while whispered interpreting remains the oldest and most traditional one. The first simultaneous interpreters emerged during the Nuremberg process, and this is considered to be the starting point of modern simultaneous interpretation.

Nowadays interpreters are used at most major congresses and conferences, especially at those where one common language cannot be used.

Digitalizacija učionica omogućit će kvalitetniju i učinkovitiju edukaciju, a kreiranjem e-learning platforme tržište nam postaje fizički gotovo neograničeno.

Dodatnim ulaganjem u licence za računalno potpomognuto prevođenje i obradu tekstova/dokumenata, nadzor kvalitete prijevoda proširio bi broj mogućih prevoditelja i lektora koji bi mogli sudjelovati na projektima gdje su navedeni alati jedan od ključnih uvjeta suradnje.

Svi navedeni čimbenici poslovanja u konačnici će rezultirati povećanjem konkurentnosti i stvaranja bolje tržišne pozicije s ciljem razvoja i širenja poslovanja te daljnjim povećanjem udjela izvoza u ukupnom poslovanju tvrtke.
