Boston, MA October 2016 – Language Connections, a Boston-based language service provider, regularly partners with large academic institutions to help them overcome language barriers during international events and programs. Our team of expert linguists allows us to provide high quality professional translation and interpreting while tailoring our services to our client’s needs in any given situation. One recent project required our Spanish interpreting services for an event at the Harvard Business School (HBS). Specifically, we were asked to provide a Spanish consecutive interpreter to facilitate for Spanish speaking participants during an Executive Education Program at Harvard last month.
The one-week program hosted by HBS, known as the Argo Global Management and Strategic Execution Excellence Program, is designed to bring together multinational top executives. The primary goal of the program is to guide international business executives to formulate and implement strategies that will enhance their ability to compete globally.
Spanish Consecutive Interpreting Services
Our Spanish consecutive interpreter facilitated between participants and HBS faculty during course registration, coffee breaks and program checkout periods. This allowed the faculty to fulfill any special requests or questions, regardless of the English proficiency of participants. As part of our linguistic services, the interpreter was also asked to perform Spanish translations of course evaluations and other written texts (such as information written on the board) since these had not been translated prior to the program. This type of “on the fly” translation when an interpreter is asked to translate written text, is generally referred to as sight translation. Our experienced linguists have a strong background in the specialized topics presented at events and conferences for Higher Education, and are therefore able to ensure that communication is not a barrier.
