Project

We worked very closely with the event management team to ensure that only the best simultaneous interpreters covered the event. Equipment was provided and management of interpreters and technicians was necessary throughout the event to ensure everything ran smoothly. The event was opened by President Obama and several high profile speakers attended. Months prior to the event itself, Effectiff was tasked with translating the Select USA Summit website and registration information from English to eight (8) languages–Russian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Arabic, Spanish,French, and German.

Results

We translated the 2016 SelectUSA Summit’s website and registration into eight (8) languages and provided interpretation equipment and simultaneous interpreters in five (5) languages, including American Sign Language and CART. The event was a major success, and our performance at this important event was a key factor in Effectiff being awarded the 2017 Select USA Summit language services management contract.
