March 2017- Boston, MA – Language Connections, a Boston-based translation and interpreting agency, often provides academic translation services and professional conference interpreting services for top academic and medical institutions, including Harvard Medical School (HMS). In a recent project we were asked to provide Chinese interpretation to English, and vice versa, for an executive education program geared toward Chinese executives from the Shanghai Creation Investment Group.
The Shanghai Creation Investment Group is an active investment funds and IPO consulting company in Shanghai, China. Over the last decade the group has invested successfully in the medical sector (among others) – the main areas being health care, high-end manufacturing, and new materials. The HBS program included such topics as digital tools used to quantitate health and disease. We also provided conference interpreting services during a presentation on the factors that impact the development of the Medical Device Industry.
Providing Chinese Interpretation to English
Providing simultaneous Chinese interpretation to English, and vice versa, for executive education requires extensive pre-planning. Interpreters must be chosen based on subject matter knowledge, in this case medical, and they must be given materials beforehand so they can prepare. Our expert Chinese simultaneous interpretation team facilitated for an intensive two-hour period during which time detailed technical topics were presented and discussed. Aside from knowledge of the topics and specific terminology in both languages, interpreters were selected on the basis of their experience providing simultaneous interpreting services.
