Agro-industrial Investment Forum “Agroinvest 2017” took place in Astana, where our Chinese spoken translators/simultaneous interpreters Zurash and Yerlan splendidly interpreted Chinese to Russian and Russian to Chinese.
Our interpreters rendered spoken simultaneous interpretation services for Kazakhstani and foreign experts in the agricultural sector.
One very interesting point. Initially, they planned that when English speakers give talk, there would be translation from English to Russian and vice versa. Our translators were supposed to translate from Russian to Chinese using the relay method. But it turned out that there were no English translators at the forum.
The speakers spoke English. Fortunately, our translator Yerlan happens to be English-Russian interpreter. Thus, it was no problem for him to translate directly from English to Chinese. What a surprise it was, and delight at the same time for the client when Yerlan was able to replace two translators. When it comes to Yerlan, it was just another valuable experience.
The customer was very pleased with the quality translation and the fact that the event was a great success.
More than 30 projects were brought by Kazakhstani entrepreneurs to the “AgroInvest Forum 2017”. They plan to implement the projects powered by the foreign investors. 200 people in total from 18 countries took part in the forum, including about 40 representatives with large investment funds and financial organizations. A number of important contracts, agreements and memoranda were signed as a result of the meetings.
In addition, the Forum gave an opportunity to get acquainted with the Kazakh agricultural products within the framework of the exposition, as well as taste dishes from high-quality Kazakh products during lunch.
