Interpreting Services




Caledonian Communications provides top quality professional interpreters for all types of international meetings and events. Our main languages are the European ones (Italian, English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese), but we can also carry out services in other languages as well. 

There are 4 types of interpreting – here is an explanation of them all:

Liaison Interpreting

For business meetings, visits to factories or plants and negotiations. You might be new to Italy and simply need someone to translate for you when you go to the doctor or dentist.

Simultaneous Interpreting
For international conferences, this involves immediate translation via earphones. We will supply the cabins, the earphones and an audio-technician upon request.

Consecutive Interpreting
Used for conferences, work meetings and official meetings, it is not an immediate translation. The interpreter takes notes of what the speaker says and gives a summary to the audience every 5 to 10 minutes.

Whisper Interpreting or Chuchotage
This involves immediate translation in a whisper to a maximum of two delegates with or without earphones which we will supply upon request.

Specialised Translations




For more than two decades we have been providing top quality professional translations to big multinationals and SMI’s. No job is too big, nor two small in whatever language you require. Our main languages are the European ones (Italian, English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese), but we also provide translations into Chinese, Japanese, Arab, etc. All our translators are professionals with experience in the sector in question and they always translate into their MOTHERTONGUE. 

We offer various types of translation services:

Specialised Translation

Web sites, legal, balance sheets, engineering, construction, marketing, advertising, HR etc.

Revision and Quality Control

This is carried out by a second MT translator to ensure that the quality of our work meets with Caledonian Standards. This is not an option when the client requires our work to be sworn at court and is also a requirement of THE CALEDONIAN GUARANTEE.

Revision of Client's Work

Done the translation yourself? Want it checked – upload it and we will take care of it for you!

Sworn Translations

Translations of many documents such as balance sheets, company Statutes, insurance claims, personal documents (birth and marriage certificates, driving licences, university degrees) etc., almost always require to be sworn in at court and carry the court stamp. This is a routine job for us.

Court Authenticated
 Translations
Court authentication (or apostilling) a document certifies both the legal standing of the public official who signed the authenticated document and the authenticity of the signature itself. Court authentication is normally sought in the case of documents issued in Italy so that they may be rendered equally legally valid abroad (and vice-versa).

Language Training for the Whole Family




Caledonian offers a wide range of language courses not just for companies, but also for the whole family! Here are some examples:


Individual English, French, German, Spanish, Portuguese and Italian for Foreigners
All courses are in 30 hour and 60 hour modules and are designed to suit your requirements. You can start whenever you want and do the lessons at whatever time you want – depending, of course, on teacher availability. Lesson times are:
Monday to Thursday: 8.30-20.30
Friday: 8.30-17.30
Saturday: 10.00-13.00


Group Italian Courses
We organise group Italian courses every three months for beginners and pre-intermediate students in classes of minimum 4 and maximum 8 – the average is 4. They are designed to help newcomers to Italy to integrate and make friends and all the basic structures of Italian are covered, as well as conversation. All courses are carried out by qualified mother-tongue teachers.  

English Courses for Children
There is no better way to learn a language than through play and it goes without saying that children learn much faster than adults. Children today are already extremely busy between school and extracurricular activities without going back to school once school is out. So English has to be seen as fun, something they can look forward to. Our teachers are experts at making it fun and the first lesson is completely free! The groups are very small, on average only 4, and take place at 4.30 in the afternoons. They will be starting shortly – call us and have your child do his/her first lesson!

English Courses for Teenagers
Common knowledge has it that it is practically impossible to find a job without a good command of English. Leave it to the experts, we’ve been organising kids’ courses for over 20 years.  Groups are very small, maximum 6 (minimum 3).  Programmes are designed around the interests of today’s teenagers – they learn without even realising!
Courses start end October/early November and last15 weeks. Each lesson is two hours and classes are divided into three levels: A1, A2 and B1.

Tutoring
If your child/teenager is having trouble at school with a particular language at school, we will provide him/her with a fully qualified mother-tongue tutor, who will follow the school syllabus as well as teaching conversation skills.

Caledonian Lunch Club
Have you done lots of English courses but don’t get much time to practise? Don’t have time to do a complete English course? We have the solution for you! Come and have lunch with one of our expert mother-tongue teachers and have a relaxing chat – we’ll even order the lunch for you! It won’t even take up a lot of your time, it’s only once a week for an hour. You’ll even get the chance to meet other people in the same boat and discuss a different topic every week according to what’s happening in the world. The first meeting is free and we’ll be starting very soon – drop by to find out more!

Company Language Courses

 



Standard Business Courses
Based on the communicative approach, all courses use real-life situations and activities which allow clients to become familiar with the foreign language via real communication, right from the very first session. Our Business courses ensure rapid progress thanks to a carefully structured linguistic programme which integrates grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation tasks, together with constant monitoring.  
These courses are geared mainly to professional people with work experience who need to improve their knowledge of the language in a series of business contexts. The main aim of such courses is to develop the client's communication and comprehension skills by participation in discussions on business and management related topics.

Why not download our catalogue and choose your course right away!

Ad-hoc Language Training
Our specialised courses are aimed at people working in sectors where there is high exposure to foreign languages, professionals who need to attend meetings, speak at conferences, conduct negotiations and represent their company. These courses are aimed to provide a high degree of linguistic autonomy and competence in a specific professional field. This is achieved by the use of practical role-play exercises, such as making presentations and telephone calls, as well as taking part in negotiations and social situations.
Courses can be on an individual or group basis, the duration depends on client requirements and the participants can opt for a normal, semi-intensive or intensive format. All courses are specifically designed according to a careful needs analysis which we carry out before the start; the programme is then sent to the client for approval.

Linguistic Workshops
All business professionals have one thing in common: they are always under pressure. It is on this principle that we have based our Management Training. All our seminars take a practical approach towards the development of the essential competences which are fundamental for success in an increasingly competitive business world.
Each workshop is developed according to clients’ needs and consists of 4 half days which are dedicated to a particular topic decided by the client, such as Customer Care, Cross Cultural Communication or Conference Calling.
