Special Delivery: Conference Interpretation for Domino’s

America’s Top Pizza Delivery Company Holds Vegas Conference for Suppliers, and AML-Global Aids Communication

It takes more than a lot of sauce, dough and cheese to make a highly successful pizza delivery chain run. Founded in 1960, Domino’s Pizza is maybe the country’s best-known pizza delivery chain. When company leaders recently held a conference for suppliers and attendees from a number of different countries participated, the firm’s management called on American Language Services to provide conference interpretation in a number of different languages to suppliers from all corners of the globe.

The Domino’s Pizza, LLC conference took place in May at the Las Vegas Mirage. A hub for international conferences, Las Vegas has been one of the most popular conference locations in the world for decades, and Las Vegas is among American Language Services strategic locations throughout the country, including our headquarters in Los Angeles, and branch locations in nine key cities in the U.S. In addition to our locations in Las Vegas and Los Angeles, we also have offices in Irvine, Calif., San Diego and San Francisco, as well as Washington, D.C., New York, Miami and Chicago.

American Language Services provided interpretation services in a number of different languages to accommodate the many visitors from foreign lands who attended the conference and were able to understand and enjoy the keynote speakers at the event. AML-Global provided two Korean interpreters, two Mandarin interpreters, two Turkish interpreters, two Spanish interpreters, two French interpreters and two Japanese interpreters. The interpretive services allowed all participants at the conference to benefit from the flow of information that was provided, and allowed them to take away more information that will assist them in their business dealings.

Anyone who has attended a conference where interpreters are being used to help enable all attendees to understand the speakers knows, the interpreters usually use fully encapsulated booths and transmission equipment to help isolate themselves from the conference attendees so that the sound of their language interpretations don’t distract other conference goers and perhaps ruin their conference experience.

AML-Global maintains its own cadre of top quality, highly professional equipment to aid in language interpretation in meetings, conferences or seminars, among other events. Our equipment is probably closer than you’d think to the location where your event may be taking place. That’s because AML-Global stores conference equipment in select locations around the country so it’s ready on a moment’s notice. That also save you a pretty penny on shipping costs.

To aid in the delivery of discrete channels of communication, ensuring that only the intended participants received any of the channels of language interpretation, AML-Global provided six fully encapsulated booths and 320 headset-receivers, To accommodate all of the equipment that was needed for this conference, AML-Global also hired two technicians to oversee the electronics that were needed to broadcast the various interpretations, and to keep everything running on track.

American Language Services regularly performs French interpreting, German interpreting, Portuguese interpreting, Italian interpreting and Danish interpreting.

Founded in 1985, United States based American Language Services ® (AML-Global) evolved from an intimate language school into the leading interpreting and translating agency it is today.

Sir Richard Branson Speaks of Compassion for Hearing Impaired at Recent Expo

American Language Services continues to blaze a trail in providing top-quality language services at events and conferences covering cutting edge information that feature keynote speakers who are innovators in business, technology and government.

When the Hearing Innovation Expo, a major conference for independent hearing care professionals, needed linguistic service, conference organizers called on AML-Global to provide language interpretation at the well attended event presented at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

The Expo, sponsored by Starkey Hearing Technologies, was attended by some 3,000 hearing care professionals from all over the world. To accommodate many non-English speaking attendees, AML-Global was selected to provide Language Interpretation Services throughout the four day event.

Keynote speaker Sir Richard Branson, the British business magnate best known for his Virgin Group of more than 400 businesses, including Virgin Airlines and Virgin Records, was among a host of business leaders and dignitaries that made the event a memorable one.

In his address, Branson spoke of the need to be passionate about providing help to those with hearing loss. He also showed a video about one of his Virgin companies that will be taking paying customers by spacecraft to the edge of space.

Branson also engaged in a discussion with Starkey founder Bill Austin about what motivates them in their businesses, their considerable worldwide charitable efforts and their lives.

The event was attended by an international contingent of business people who had traveled from many corners of the globe to be part of the experience. The event required simultaneous Interpretation, and AML-Global provided two Korean, two Mandarin, two Italian, two Spanish, two French, two German and two Japanese Interpreters. Interpreters help deliver the content of keynote speakers’ addresses, as well as comments made at industry workshops and seminars. Interpreters help facilitate the free flow of communication, and help attendees comprehend the information being discussed with the impediments of language barriers.

In addition, AML-Global provided electronic equipment that aided in the delivery of linguistic services to non-English speaking attendees, including seven soundproof booths to isolate the interpreters from the audience, 210 headsets and receivers and 14 portable transmitters were employed to deliver the proper language channels to the recipients. A technician was also provided to keep all systems functioning smoothly throughout the event.

American Language Services is a worldwide leader in the translation and interpreting industry. By paying meticulous attention to details, AML-Global has earned an outstanding reputation for providing both written and verbal language services that are timely and cost effective. AML-Global translators, interpreters and transcriptionists are fluent in virtually every written and spoken language around the globe.

President Clinton Speaks to Finance, Tech Pros at Fiserv Forum

AML-Global delivers top-quality interpretation services to international audience

Continuing on its path of providing language interpretation services in some exciting venues for international audiences, American Language Services supplied language interpretation services at another successful event in Las Vegas, Nevada, in April. The event, Fiserv Solutions, Inc.’s Conference at the Las Vegas Venetian. It was AML-Global’s second event this year featuring keynote speaker President Bill Clinton.

Fiserv, a leading global provider of financial services technology solutions, assembled an impressive lineup of speakers to address the audience of more than 3,500 financial and technology professionals at the four-day Forum 2012 spring client conference.

President Clinton, Founder of the William J. Clinton Foundation and 42nd President of the United States, addressed the conference. His speech was titled “Embracing Our Common Humanity.”

President Clinton’s public speeches typically describe the challenge of globalization, emphasize our growing interdependence, and point the way toward a common future based on shared goals and values. His is a powerful voice for progress around the world as he shares his unique insights and observations.

American Languages Services, a top-level provider of conference interpreters, language interpretation, ASL interpretation, transcription services as well as multimedia services, provided two Spanish and two Brazilian Portuguese interpreters to the conference. Language interpretation was conveyed via two encapsulated booths, and 60 headsets and receivers, which were maintained by one technician. AML-Global provided the equipment and the technician for the event.

The proper sort of equipment is crucial in providing effective conference interpretation services, because without professional-quality transmitters, which may include PFM-T32-16 Channel with Microphone Body Pack Transmitter with mute switch, 16-Channel and headsets – the HED 021 – Deluxe Folding Headsets & 8-Channel WB 3V Receiver, for instance — speech interpretations cannot be effectively conveyed, and in all likelihood members of the audience in need of language translation services are apt to miss crucial parts of the proceedings.

In addition to interpretation services, American Language Services also provides language translation services, and can quickly and accurately provide document translations in more than 200 languages. Services include French translation, Italian translation, German translation, Portuguese translation, Spanish translation, Swedish translation, Hungarian translation, Polish translation, Russian translation, Czech translation, Finnish translation, Ukrainian translation, Danish translation and Romanian translation.

Headsets and transmitters allow interpreters who are in charge of conveying the speakers’ words to the audience can provide simultaneous interpretations of the conference proceedings for a multilingual audience, but Fully Encapsulated Booths & Transmission Equipment help ensure that the presence of different interpreters does not become a noisy distraction for the entire audience. Instead, the carefully arranged equipment allows interpreters to channel interpreted speech to the correct spectators. Different radio channels enable interpreters to broadcast the proceedings on discreet radio frequencies, which allows all of those requiring language assistance to tune into the channel of language that each understands. AML-Global also provides Table Top Sound Reduction Booths & Transmission Equipment.

American Language Services owns its own equipment for interpretation, and maintains warehouses of equipment situated in key locations around the country. Because of this, AML-Global can deliver equipment quickly, especially when there are tight deadlines. Also, conference producers save money on shipping when the distance from the warehouse to the conference is short.

American Language Services not only provides interpretation services in Spanish and Portuguese, it also frequently provides services in Japanese interpretation, Chinese interpretation, Tagalog interpretation, Vietnamese interpretation, Thai interpretation, Hindi interpretation, Greek interpretation, Tibetan interpretation, Hungarian interpretation, Hebrew interpretation and Danish interpretation.

In addition to conference interpretation, American Language Services also performs convention interpreting, education interpreting, business meeting interpreting, medical interpreting, legal interpreting and contract negotiation interpreting.
