Thankfully, events are slowly transitioning back to their pre-COVID formats. Conferences and trade shows are among some of the events that are coming back to an in-person, or hybrid format. This is no different for similar events in the legal field. As these events begin to run again, there are many considerations to take into account. One of them is the pressing need for conference interpreting at these events. Read below to see some of the reasons why it is so important to an event’s success to have conference interpreting.
Conference Interpreting Supports the Sharing of Ideas
The main point of a conference or a trade show is to share ideas and current trends within the field. Conference interpreting services ensure that all conference attendees will be able to fully understand the presenters. By offering conference interpretation services, all attendees will be able to fully engage with the presented materials and really make the conference experience as educational and meaningful as possible. Conference interpreting conducted by professional interpreters with knowledge of the legal field will also help presenters and attendees feel more confident that all necessary legal terminology is interpreted accurately, making for a higher quality experience overall.
Conferences Benefit from Providing an Interpreter for Workshops
Additionally, depending on the format of your conference or trade show, you may benefit from providing an interpreter for workshops or smaller breakout sessions of the conference. In these smaller settings, an interpreter can be key to facilitating discussions between attendees. Additionally, if you were at a trade show and wanted to meet with a representative from another law firm, or with someone doing interesting research in the legal field, it would be beneficial to have access to an interpreter for meetings of this kind. In this setting, consecutive interpreting services may be beneficial to all parties involved if they do not speak the same language. Providing these kinds of interpreters at conferences or trade shows is another great way to encourage discussion and the sharing of ideas between event attendees.
Conference Interpreting Supports Accessibility Goals
Another reason conference interpreting is so important at legal conferences and trade shows is its ability to support accessibility goals for the event. Attendees should not feel excluded from or limited in conversations or presentations simply because they do not speak the same language as the presenter or speaker. Providing interpreters at these events is a fantastic way to ensure accessibility for all attendees and encourage diverse perspectives and ideas to be heard and considered. Working with a company experienced in providing conference and legal interpreting services is a great starting point for providing this level of added accessibility and support for all attendees to make your next event as beneficial as possible for the widest audience.
