Booking the right interpreting services in Nottingham
There is nothing quite like communicating with someone in their own language. Our network of fully qualified and highly experienced interpreters is on-hand for all of your spoken interpreting needs. You can always count on us to provide:
Simultaneous interpreting is the kind you may have seen at large conferences with many international delegates or during sporting events such as the Olympics. The interpreter translates what the speaker is saying in real-time, and is often required to use some specialist equipment.
Consecutive interpreting is where the interpreter translates what the speaker is saying during natural pauses in conversation. This means that the interpreter speaks only after the speaker has finished what they are saying. This method doesn’t require any specialist equipment and is suitable for situations such as meetings and medical appointments.
Experts in specific fields are par for the course with our interpreting services. We regularly source professionals in all disciplines, including:
- Legal interpreters
- Business interpreters
- Telephone interpreters
- Court interpreters
- Conference interpreters
- Multilingual Transcription specialists

Nottingham – facts and things to know
Where is Nottingham?
Nottingham is situated in the East Midlands area of England, just over 200 km north of London.
What were Nottingham’s historic industries?
Historically, like many cities in the middle of England, Nottingham first found itself to be growing in size during the Industrial Revolution. Textiles – lace, in particular – were manufactured in Nottingham in quantities and quality that became renowned around the world.
Today, the part of the city known as the Lace Market has been restored. But following the Second World War, Nottingham’s textile industry gradually faded in prominence. It was replaced somewhat by bicycle manufacture – Raleigh Bicycles and Sturmey-Archer both had headquarters in the region until relatively recently – and the tobacco industry.
Modern Nottingham has announced a focus on digital media, life sciences, and low-carbon technologies – the city was named one of the UK’s key science cities in 2005 – and the usual financial services, business services, and retail found in most other UK cities.
How big is Nottingham?
The city of Nottingham has a population of around 330 000. This grows to perhaps 765 000 if you take into account all of its suburbs.
Taken as a whole, the Nottingham area is the second-largest urban area in the Midlands of England and the largest in the East Midlands.
What is Nottingham famous for?
Nottingham is probably most famous for its connection to Robin Hood, a legendary outlaw and hero of the common people. Robin Hood is famous for “stealing from the rich and giving to the poor” and his band of “Merry Men”, though whether such a figure is a historical fact is a matter of debate among historians.
The city has to a large extent built a tourist trade on the legend as well as certain other aspects of the city and its attractive environs. In 2018 alone, 36 million tourists visited Nottingham, many drawn by the idea of the city of Robin Hood. There is even a bell – the fifth-largest in England – in Nottingham Council House that is called “Little John”, the name of the best-known member of Robin Hood’s band.
Nottingham is also known for its sport and was actually named the “Home of English Sport” in 2015. The city is known for its long association with cricket and football as well as tennis, all sports favoured by the English.
There is a smattering of inventions that hail from Nottingham too. Ibuprofen, traffic lights, tarmac, videotape recording methods, and the MRI scanner among them.
