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 April 22 – 25 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 on April 24. 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.

The event, the first Expo of its kind, offered is a powerful voice for progress around the world as he shares his unique insights and observations hearing professional from around the world an opportunity to gather, exchange idea and learn about the newest innovations in hearing technologies.

American Languages Services, a top-level provider of conference interpretation, language interpretation, ASL interpretation, transcription services as well as multi-media 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.

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.

Fareed Zakaria, described by Esquire magazine as “the most influential foreign policy adviser of his generation,” shared insights on “The New Global Landscape.” Zakaria is editor-at-large of Time magazine, a weekly host for CNN and a regular columnist for The Washington Post.

Interpreters in the Courtroom

New research has found that untrained interpreters can cause unjust verdicts in court cases involving people from non-English speaking backgrounds.

A study by the University of Western Sydney shows that the speech and mannerisms of interpreters influence the way in which witnesses and defendants are judged.

Associate Professor Sandra Hale told David Crisante, interpreters often lack courtroom experience and need specialist training to ensure the accuracy of their work.
