UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) – now known as the Department for International Trade – has the vital task of increasing global trade links and helping UK businesses expand overseas.
Their success can be seen in the recent all-time high figures for British exports.
Successful negotiations – a matter of interpretation
After a successful collaboration studying the role of languages in international trade, UKTI asked Guildhawk to provide Chinese and Russian consecutive interpreters for a series of trade events on green energy, renewables and waste management in cities across England.
UKTI asked Guildhawk to provide Chinese and Russian consecutive interpreters for a series of trade events on green energy, renewables and waste management in cities across England.
With 60 foreign buyers and 100 delegates attending, we knew that our interpreters would be working at full stretch. That meant precision logistical planning by our project managers and careful selection of linguistic experts who were highly experienced in business negotiation and environmental engineering. The result was a successful series of events, with which UKTI were very satisfied.
