Interesting Interpreting & Translation Projects Completed in March
We recently completed a job for a great client of ours Louisiana State University the project took place in the police academy in Conakry, Guinea. The job took place over one week and we supplied several French interpreters, portable headsets and transmitters, sound reduction booths and onsite technical support. This project involved biological disaster training and was a big success.
Another interesting project completed in the beginning of March was completed for Ethisphere Institute a Scottsdale, Arizona-based organization that defines and measures corporate ethical standards, recognizes companies that excel, and promotes best practices in corporate ethics. This was a nationwide meeting that took place over a 2 day span in the Empire State Building in New York. We provided them with Korean, Japanese and Russian interpreters along with a full array of equipment including portable headsets and transmitters, sound reduction booths and onsite technical support. The project went off impeccably.
