September 16 was National CleanUp Day, an observance in the U.S. that occurs on the 3rd Saturday in September. This unofficial holiday aims to raise awareness about cleanliness and reducing litter, making sure the nature around us remains clean and rid of garbage. This is a day about appreciating nature and the world we live in. Also, in September is the September Equinox which this year fell on September 22. In the Northern Hemisphere, the September Equinox represents the first day of fall and is when the length of the day and night is nearly equal due to the sun shining directly on the equator. As September is drawing to a close and October is quickly approaching, American Language Services have been reflecting on our most recent interpreting and translating projects this month ensuring we keep clients happy and achieving the best possible outcome.

Another interpreting project completed in September was for a great client of ours Virginia Commonwealth University. For a physical disabilities conference at the James Branch Cabell Library, 6 different American Sign Language interpreters were needed over the 2 day conference span. American Language Services were able to fill the job with excellent interpreters, ensuring the conference went well.

The event went extremely well.
