Conference Interpreting for the Highland Council
The European Unit within the Highland Council were hosting the Euromontana Conference: Sustainable Active Tourism, Mountain Communities Leading Europe in Finding Innovative Solutions. They required assistance with the conference interpreting element of the planning.
The conference was taking place over two days and interpretation services were required for 60% of the delegation. Although the Council chamber was equipped with a booth, this was not sufficient to satisfy the requirements of the event.
Global Language Services Ltd, using their links with specialist organisations in the industry, were able to source the Inforport equipment required to facilitate the conference and also assign qualified French conference interpreters with experience of using such equipment and incorporate this into an all inclusive price that the Highland Council could include in their conference budget.
By maintaining a dialogue with the Highland Council throughout the project, Global Language Services Ltd were able to arrange the equipment to be delivered to site prior to the conference and provide the interpreters with a full programme of events to allow them to prepare in advance.
As a result of the success of this particular project, we have since worked with other customers, including councils, on a number of conferences and provided this service in a number of languages.
