Interesting Interpreting & Translation Projects Completed in June
We recently completed an interpreting project for SDI Media; a media localization company who offers subtitling, dubbing and media services. This particular project was a live broadcast for Microsoft, over 2 days. For both days, French, Spanish, Brazilian-Portuguese and Italian interpreters were provided. The project was flawless.
Another interesting interpreting project completed in June was for Blake & Ayaz Law Corporation in Los Angeles, California. The project was for a very complex legal trial that required Arabic and Urdu interpreters for 2 days. The job went perfectly.
We completed a translation project for the Virginia Commonwealth University. The job involved translating agendas, exercises and training day schedules from English into Braille. This was an extremely large project and we were able to turn it around impeccably ensuring we keep our client of over 10 years happy.
