Interpretation Into 19 Languages
The world's largest event, which was held in Dubai, needed a fully hybrid interpretation setup for the media center to cater to daily media briefings and high profile press conferences. French and Arabic were required every day, and an additional 17 languages ranging from Swahili to Serbian were required ad hoc.
TransPerfect worked closely with the media center and the onsite setup to provide 360-degree service that encompassed specialist interpretation technology and technical support, sourcing locally based interpreters, scheduling interpretation for 182+ days and setting up a local information sharing system among all stakeholders, including external AV partners.
The TransPerfect team suported 127 days of interpretation activity, 182 sessions, and 135+ hours of interpretation content, while going from on-site to fully remote in less than 24 hours due to COVID-19 requirements.
