May 2017, Boston MA – Language Connections, a Boston translation and interpreting company, provides linguistic services for all types of high profile conferences and across many different industries. We recently provided expert Chinese conference interpreting services for one of our regular clients, a major player in the Energy sector, IHS Markit. The event, the China Forum, is part of a larger conference – the World Petrochemical Conference -which took place in Houston, TX.
The China Forum is a new networking event, hosted by IHS Markit and the China Petroleum and Chemical Industry Federation (CPCIF), that brings together speakers from major Chinese and North American companies. They join IHS Markit experts to address the current market status and future industry growth.
Providing Chinese Conference Interpreting Services
Our client, IHS Markit, provides information and analysis to support the decision-making process of businesses and governments the chemical, energy and technology industries. We regularly provide linguistic services at their large, annual event CERAWeek, a major international conference on energy.
Conferences generally require a very specific type of linguistic services. Conference interpreting is done via simultaneous interpretation in most cases, in order to avoid irritating, and time consuming, pauses in speech that would be necessary with consecutive interpreting.
Because the World Petrochemical Conference: China Forum is such a large event, our Chinese conference interpreting services included Chinese interpreters and full interpreting equipment.
During the conference, CPCIF Chairman Li Shousheng presented on China’s chemical industry and current government policy. Other events included discussions on opportunities for investment in the chemical sector. Our team of Chinese simultaneous interpreters facilitated during these presentations and discussions, interpreting English to Chinese.
They utilized interpreting equipment including a soundproof booth, where they provided their interpretation into microphones that transmitted to the 350 portable headsets and receivers required by the Chinese speaking audience members.
