Heriot-Watt University's Multilingual Debate is an annual event that showcases the interpreting skills of undergraduate students on the Languages (Interpreting and Translating) degree programme, as well as the developing professional skills of postgraduate students on the MSc Interpreting and Translating programmes. The event takes the form of a formal debate with two multilingual teams arguing for and against a motion of topical interest in a range of languages.

The audience is mainly made up of pupils coming from Scottish and English secondary schools, but also university undergraduate students considering entering the interpreting profession, as well as government and local authority representatives. The audiences participated in the debate by listening to the arguments, putting questions to the speakers in the languages represented and voting on the motion.
