June 20, 2016 – Language Connections, a Boston-based translation and interpreting agency, recently facilitated Russian Interpreting for a new local company, Fasten. A startup quietly entering the Boston transportation market, Fasten is on par to compete with more established names in the industry including Uber and Lyft.
Fasten’s service is almost identical to Uber’s, except for their compensation method. Rather than taking a percentage cut from each ride given, Fasten takes $1 per ride, or alternatively a fixed daily or weekly fee. The company claims that this allows them to charge their clients less than their major competitors, while still being fair to their drivers.
In a recent meeting of the board of directors, the company asked that we provide Russian interpreting services for a Russian director attending the meeting. Our expert Russian consecutive interpreter ensured that the communication between the Russian speaker and the other board members was not encumbered.
