Even if you speak some French, or your French client or contact speaks some English, you might want to avoid unnecessary misunderstandings or “grey areas” and make your meeting as fruitful and effective as possible by employing the services of a bilingual interpreter.
French speaking delegates will get the full benefit of a training course through the services of an interpreter, and have a much better chance of passing assessments and obtaining the qualification they came for. The presence of an interpreter will also make life easier for the trainer who can then concentrate on delivering the course content.
Having an interpreter at an international trade fair will help you communicate with the organizers, increase your contacts and leads and therefore maximize your investment in your stand.
I will be delighted to accompany a French speaking group coming for a business and/or sightseeing trip to the UK, and to Scotland in particular. Likewise, if you are taking a delegation or a group to France and would like an interpreter to help the trip go smoothly and make sure that the participants get the full benefit of what they see and hear, contact me.
If you would like to contact a French speaker with the comfort of having an interpreter on the line at the same time, I can arrange a three-way-call.
