June 13, 2016 – June 6-9th marked the 2016 BIO International Convention, attended by over 15,000 global experts in the life science industry in San Francisco, California. For the fifth consecutive year as a language service provider for Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO), Language Connections provided comprehensive linguistic support, including multilingual translation of pre-event marketing materials and conference interpreting services during events at the convention.
Language Connections at BIO
BIO represents companies, academic institutions and organizations in over 30 countries. One of their main functions is to host the annual convention which brings together global experts from 69 different countries. With participants from all around the world, language barriers are an issue. Whether a large presentation that requires simultaneous interpreting, or a one-on-one meeting facilitated by a consecutive interpreter, linguistic services are a must.
At this year’s BIO International Convention, Language Connections provided simultaneous interpreting services for Chinese and Russian participants, including a presentation by the Deputy Minister of Education & Science of the Russian Federation, Lyudmila Ogorodova, and a business meeting between BIO representatives and a small group of Chinese delegates. These interpreting events also required interpreting equipment, including soundproof booths for interpreters and headsets and receivers for listeners.
