Around 97% of Poland's 37 million population call Polish their mother tongue but it is spoken worldwide by approximately 50 million people. With Polish diaspora one of the largest in the world, it is not surprising that Polish speakers can be found all over the globe, with large communities of Polish speakers residing in Lithuania, Belarus and Ukraine. Of the more than 11 million Polish Americans in the USA, over 600,000 speak Polish on a daily basis, while 500,000 people in the UK call Polish their main language.
As a West Slavic language, Polish is closely related to Slovak and Czech and is similar to Russian and to an extent, Bulgarian. After Russian, it is the second most widely-spoken Slavic lanaguage.
Polish uses the Latin alphabet in addition to a number of diacritics which alter the sound of a letter. These are called the kreska (which resembles the acute accent used in French) i.e. ć, ń, ó, ś, ź, the kropka (a dot above a letter) for the letter ż and the ogonek, or "little tail", which is used for ą and ę.
Polish has in recent years taken on many loanwords from the lingua franca English, such as "komputer". Both Latin and German have also had significant influences upon the Polish language. Indeed, Latin was once the official language of Poland, while Germany is its long-standing neighbour.
The English words "sable" and "spruce" both come from Polish.
Just like any other nation, Poland has its own business etiquette. See our Doing Business in Poland Page to find out more.
Simultaneous interpreting requires lots of skill and experience and can be very tiring for an interpreter, which is why it is common for two interpreters to work in partnership. They listen via a headset to the speaker and interpret what is being said into a microphone for the relevant audience members taking it in turns every 15/20 minutes.
Simultaneous interpretation like this is commonly required at conferences that involve several different languages and a large number of participants.
Consecutive interpreting is the most common type of interpreting. It is used for business discussions, negotiations, contract exchanges, commercial discussions, legal, technical discussions, medical or court hearings or on site inspections. The interpreter listens to the speaker, often making notes, and delivers the meaning in the target language afterwards. If a speech is delivered, the interpreter may wait until a pause or the end, at which point they deliver a translation relatively quickly. Consecutive interpreting may also be used at conferences for panel discussions, Q&A sessions or private discussions between parties - at a stall or elsewhere.
Facilitating interpreting is used when a client has limited English / source language skills but requires technical or in depth terminology to be clarified in their native tongue to avoid misunderstandings.
The facilitating interpreter is there primarily to ensure communication is effective and relieve the client from the fatigue of speaking in a foreign tongue.
Telephone interpreting allows parties of different nationalities, who are not able to meet in person, to communication via telephone or video conferencing.
The interpreter bridges the gap. Sometimes an interpreter is present in one of the two locations, and sometimes he/she is also located somewhere apart from both parties.
