Beachbody, the company known for its ubiquitous P90X infomercials and a stable of in-home fitness programs, has been helping America’s flabby fight for fitness and health. But recently the Santa Monica-based company asked for the help of American Language Services (AML-Global) during a conference at the MGM Grand Hotel on the Strip in Las Vegas. No, AML-Global interpreters and technicians weren’t there to help Beachbody’s guests develop washboard abs or slim their waistlines. The linguists were providing simultaneous English-to-Spanish interpretation services.
Meanwhile, just down the street, our Japanese interpreters were being called on to assist the Walt Disney Company at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center. When you think of cities needing translation and interpretation services, New York, Paris, Tokyo and Shanghai may come to mind but what about Las Vegas?
Las Vegas has become a center for international conferences and other meetings that bring together people from around the world. And as Las Vegas’ international popularity grows, so does its need for professional translation and interpretation services. And for that, they have been depending on for more than a decade.
The number of foreign visitors to Las Vegas has been climbing and continues to do so, often in double-digit jumps. Although the numbers of visitors from Germany, France, and South Korea are all climbing, China in particular is on a significant uptick. The number of Chinese guests are expected to increase at least 219 percent by 2015. And if history is any indicator, the need for our services will jump as well. Luckily, with over 240 languages and thousands of linguists on tap, we’re the safest bet in town. Maybe that’s why we’ve served nearly every independent resort in the city with translation and interpretation for conferences, social events and more.
This year AML-Global’s interpreters, translators and equipment could be found at such world-famous venues as Caesars, the Bellagio, the Venetian, and the Orleans Hotel. And we’ll be providing translation and interpretation services for such diverse languages as Arabic, Armenian, Cantonese, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog and Vietnamese.
