Simultaneous interpreters: Our industry’s A-Team

A simultaneous interpreter interprets one language into another in the blink of an eye. Unlike translating documents where one has time to contemplate meanings and subtexts, simultaneous interpreters must act in a split-second. The few who qualify for this kind of interpreting are the best of the best, possessing a rare and special blend of skill, experience and talent.

American Language Services specializes in providing our clients with the best simultaneous interpreting experience possible. It’s something we’ve been doing for nearly 30 years, and we’re good at it. That’s why some of the biggest and most well-known organizations all over the world come to us year after year. Although the recipe for a successful multilingual conference includes skilled and talented simultaneous interpreters, it’s not the only ingredient. You also need state-of-the-art equipment and skilled support. That’s why we supply everything — technicians, booths, transmitters and other audio equipment —to ensure every attendee, no matter what language he or she speaks, receives your message loud and clear. We do this in the U.S., and through our network of partnerships worldwide, often with local staff and equipment.

Recently our Las Vegas office was asked to provide simultaneous Spanish interpretation services at the luxurious Wynn Las Vegas, one of the Strip’s most prestigious resorts. Of course, we’re no stranger to Sin City. Our Las Vegas client list includes The Cosmopolitan. MGM, Caesars, and the Venetian, just to name a few. For more than a decade, we’ve been providing Las Vegas with translation, interpretation and media services in more than 240 languages, including Arabic, Armenian, Cantonese, Greek, Haitian-Creole, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog, Vietnamese, to name a few. But Sin City’s mega casinos aren’t the only ones that rely on American Language Services.

These days if you need to know something, you probably Google it. But what does Google do? Well, when the Internet’s most popular search engine needs simultaneous interpreting, it looks to us. Recently, Google asked us to provide Japanese interpretation services at an event at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, Calif. The folks at Google were so impressed with us that they called on us again for Spanish language support at the Google Ideas Summit in New York City. We’re proud to partner with Google and with many other leaders in such diverse fields as technology, finance, sports, entertainment and more.

American Language Service operates both in the US and around the world. Our winning combination of excellent service, high-quality interpretation and translation services — often from local linguists — has made us one of the premier international providers of language services.

AML-Global assists Hewlett-Packard with Conference Interpreting and Equipment Needs

May was a busy month for large scale conferences and Hewett Packard was one of the many companies that came to AML-Global to assist them with their conference interpreting and equipment needs. 
The Hewett Packard Discover 2011 Conference was a 3 day event starting on 6/5/11 and ending on 6/7/11. Interpreting in 3 different languages was requested, included Mandarin, Korean and Japanese. The event was held at the Venetian Hotel in Las Vegas, NV and according to the HP website, it was held as a new Enterprise Business event for all alumni of HP Software Universe, HP Technology Forum and HP Technology@Work. The event allowed its participants to experience HP’s entire portfolio products, solutions and services and many of HP’s high profile members were in attendance. The event included online content, select breakdown sessions, demos, exhibitors, streaming video, track keynotes plus post-event activities as well.  AML-Global scheduled 2 interpreters per language per day for the event and scheduled linguists with technology expertise to better assist the participants. 
AML-Global also assisted HP in equipment rental for the event which included portable transmitters for each interpreter and headset & receiver sets for each of the participants requiring interpreting services. Before the event, our interpreting department scheduled the interpreters several weeks in advance and provided the speakers with all pertinent information to successfully interpret for the assignment at hand. The client was sent all confirmation materials and all equipment was quality checked before leaving our facilities. The event was a successful one and AML-Global looks forward to working with this client for all their future language and equipment needs.
