Simultaneous interpretation in Almaty. Conference interpreters and spoken translators in Almaty

Medical interpreter by the Bridging the Gaps Translation Center in at a large-scale medical conference in Almaty.

 

The month of September was marked with another significant event in the life of the medical community in Kazakhstan. The regular V International Congress Central Asian Gastroenterological Week-2017 was held in Almaty.

For four years back-to-back, our conference interpreter named Yerlan gets invited to render spoken translation services at this event. This is because Yerlan has unique set of skills both in conference interpreting and medical sciences.

 

 

 

Three intense days of medical translation. The most exciting moments of the translation, and extremely difficult, when a spoken translator has to overextend himself to understand what is it that is being conveyed to the audience, when the sound from the microphone is full of interfering noises, the acoustics is not there, the speaker’s English is not quiet good.

 

And sometimes two speakers deliver speech back-to-back, and the client wants one interpreter to do the translation for whatever reason.

 

So our interpreter sometimes had to interpret for an hour and a half without a pause. And it is no secret simultaneous translators routinely alternate every 20 minutes.

 

But the BG translation agency’s interpeters are so experienced that the medical interpreter was ready for the challenge and brilliantly coped with the task in specialized medical translation English to Russian and Russian to English.

 

The BG translation agency has translators with medical background. When there are medical conferences, our interpreters are there to do the job. And this greatly contributes to the success of such events.

 

 

If you are planning an event and you need highly qualified medical translators, we will be happy to help you!

Simultaneous interpretation Chinese-Russian, Chinese-English at the Agroinvest forum in Astana

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.

 

For reference:

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.

Translators in Astana at 27th Congress of World Society of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgeons 2017

Translators of Kazakhstan gathered in Astana to do simultaneous translation at the 27th Congress of the World Society of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgeons 2017.

 

September the 1-3, 2017 was marked by a historic event in the Kazakhstan’s medical community. The 27th Congress of the World Society of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgeons (WSCTS) was carried out in Astana, Kazakhstan.

 

BG team did not stand aside and provided this event with high-quality simultaneous interpreting services.

 

The BG made up a team of the strongest spoken translators English-Russian and Russian-English in Kazakhstan, including medical spoken translators.

 

Simultaneous interpretation was provided by our translators in the following five main sections:

  • cardiac surgery
  • thoracic surgery
  • cardiology
  • special groups
  • satellite symposia by pharmaceutical companies.

 

This event was the largest for our company, since it was not an easy job to build a team of 16 simultaneous interpreters/conference  interpreters in Kazakhstan at a single event and thoroughly coordinate their work. Nevertheless, the team BG has coped with its task with flying colors.

 

We have also come up a team of 4 people to ensure the smooth work of our interpreters at the Congress.

 

We called them assistants. Throughout the event, the assistants provided technical support to the spoken translators. They collected presentations of speakers for preliminary familiarization by translators immediately before the presentation delivery, checked serviceability of the equipment, availability of all the necessary translators in a booth, among other things.

 

The Congress of cardiovascular and thoracic surgeons was carried out at the highest level. The BG team was pleased to be part of this monumental event in Kazakhstan.
