May 2017, Boston MA – Language Connections regularly provides interpretation for Higher Education institutions in the Boston area. Harvard University is among the local academic centers that we regularly serve.
We provide linguistic services for several departments at the Cambridge-based university, including the Kennedy School of Government (HKS). In a recent event, HKS requested that we provide a certified Spanish interpreter for discussions and speeches during the visit of Mexico City’s mayor, Mayor Miguel Angel Mancera.
HKS regularly hosts international leaders to both provide an opportunity to exchange ideas and discuss global challenges. Transforming Mexico City: A Discussion with Mexico City’s Mayor, the first part of one of their program with Mexican leadership, began at Harvard University where discussions focused on working together to improve conditions in Mexico City. This was followed by an event at the Boston City Hall where the signing of a Joint Declaration on Cooperation between Boston’s Mayor Walsh and Mexico City’s Mayor Mancera took place.
Each mayor also gave a ceremonial speech promoting the bond between the two cities in their respective native language. Both this ceremony and the discussion required professional simultaneous interpretation in order for all parties involved to communicate.
Moreover, we provided a certified Spanish interpreter to ensure that all measures of professionalism and accuracy were achieved.
Certified Spanish Simultaneous Interpreting Services
We selected an interpreter who is a native Mexican Spanish speaker to ensure that the interpreted speech was accurately conveyed. Language Connections also supplied portable interpreting equipment for the event.
At the Boston City Hall our linguist interpreted from English into Spanish during Mayor Walsh’s speech and then from Spanish into English during Mayor Mancera’s speech. This requires a high level expertise, both for simultaneous interpreting, as well as interpreting during the exchange between politicians when professionalism is an absolute requirement.
