Believe it or not, even though the successful communication of all parties in attendance is a main goal of event planners, oftentimes, in the planning of meetings where participants speak multiple languages, interpreters and their needs may be the last thought on event planners' minds. Regardless of whether a meeting is being held virtually or in-person, the preparation of our interpreters has been a key ingredient for success. We impress upon our clients the importance of providing as much background information and documents well in advance of the meeting as possible, and we work closely with our clients and interpreters to ensure the smooth flow of communication on the day. Such background information and documents include:
- Speakers' biographies;
- PowerPoint presentations;
- Participating countries / language variants;
- Previous meeting minutes and decisions taken;
- Useful websites; and
- Any other relevant information.
