Thanks. Been here since October 1 and am loving it so far. Having issues finding a job though, but hopefully that will work out. I moved here due to a relationship with a Scot and that part is fantastic, so no complaints here.

This made me lawl

Firm seeks Glaswegian interpreter
A translation company is looking to recruit Glaswegian interpreters to help business clients who are baffled by the local dialect.

Today Translations placed an advert in The Herald newspaper on Tuesday seeking speakers of "Glaswegian English".

Successful candidates, who could earn up to £140 a day, must understand "vocabulary, accent and nuances".

The firm said, so far, 30 people had applied for the positions - some of them in Glaswegian.


Today Translations spokesman, Mick Thorburn said: "Over the last few months we've had clients asking us for Glaswegian translators.

"After some consideration we've decided this is a service we would like to offer.

"Usually, the role would involve translating documents but in this case its more likely to be assisting foreign visitors to the city whose 'business English' is not good enough to understand the local dialect."

Mr Thorburn said successful candidates may have to sit in on business meetings.

He added: "We're not necessarily looking for people who are particularly skilled in linguistics, just candidates who can help out clients who may struggle with native Glaswegian."

Today Translations said that depending on the volume of applications, it expected to contact the successful clients in the next few weeks.

Earlier this year a bus driver was recognised for teaching his Eastern European colleagues at First Glasgow bus company to understand Glaswegian slang.

James Lillis said: "When new employees come to Scotland and hear the Glasgow accent, it can be a problem. Drivers have to learn to understand what is meant when a customer says, for example, 'Gie us an aw day tae the toon' (Give me an all day ticket to the town)."

In a similar vein

It was such a nice day today, so I decided to have a look around some new developments. 2 West Regent Street looks great, Citizen M is progressing quickly and Cuprum actually looks nice in the sun. I've taken a real interest in Art Nouveau recently, so I went and admired some of our greatest examples (sans Mackintosh). The Hatrack and The Athenaeum are easily my favourites. Then I had a late-lunch on the Broomielaw as the sun began to set. The public realm is fantastic and the bridge has really grown on me, I was surprised at the number of people who use it! So anyway that was my cheesy day

Nice to hear that the bridge and public area is being used a lot and glad you enjoyed your day.

Did you take any pics at all?

Ok, maybe I'm jut a moron, but how do I upload pictures and attach them to my posts?

I read the skyscrapercity FAQ, but I see no 'manage attachments' button even when using the 'new post' button?

Possibly I am just being stupid...
