February 23, 2016 – Language Connections, a Boston-based translation and interpreting company, provided linguistic services for events that took place at Harvard Business School during a recent visit from Hainan Airlines executives. Hainan Airlines is the largest privately owned air transportation company and the fourth largest airline in the People’s Republic of China. Harvard Business School invited the airline executives as guest lecturers at the business school, including the company’s Chairman and CEO, Chen Feng.
Our client requested both Chinese consecutive and simultaneous interpreting over the course of events. This required that our interpreter switch instantaneously from one type to the other depending on the situation – simultaneous interpreting for Hainan executives during an undergraduate class where discussions were held in English, and consecutive interpreting for students during a talk given by Hainan Airlines CEO in Chinese. A Harvard Business School MBA course was also conducted in the same manner later that day. Lastly, our interpreter accompanied the visiting executives during meetings with staff from Harvard Business School’s Executive Education program.
Mr. Chen Feng attended an event where he spoke later that evening. Language Connections provided simultaneous interpreting and a soundproof booth. In addition to the booth, we also supplied portable interpreting equipment throughout the course of lectures and events. Our highly skilled Chinese interpreter was able to navigate the day’s events, alternating between simultaneous and consecutive interpreting whenever necessary to provide seamless communication.
