Simultaneous Translators in Almaty. Translator Services in Almaty. Interpreting and transcription (shorthand) for the Soros Foundation

Our simultaneous translators in Almaty rendered translation/interpretation English to Russian and Russian to English, as well as transcription of audio recordings into text.

In the previous post we mentioned our client requested us to provide with simultaneous translators in Astana.


It turned out that the client needed simultaneous translators in the south capital of our nation, Almaty. So we had to deploy our translators in Almaty.


The event took place on weekends. And BG interpreters had no problem with that – they were delighted to meet the challenge. And it was worth it since the event subject matter was inclusive education.


Nowadays, Kazakhstan by achieving the goals of inclusive education strives to provide citizens with special educational needs in development with required facility to receive education, recover from developmental disabilities and ensure social adaptation. Inclusive education enables every child to fulfil her/his potential and exercise the right to receive education.


This subject matter is very relevant to Kazakhstan, so our highly qualified simultaneous translators consented readily to interpret during this event and provided quality interpretation services English to Russian and vice versa.


Moreover, our transcribing expert flew from Astana all the way to Almaty. Since the same event took place in two cities, we checked with the client and made a joint decision to fly the same transcription expert to Almaty so to ensure continuity in the service. The decision was made based on the fact that one expert does a better job of reconciling two meetings minutes and will be consistent in delivering the message on paper instead of two experts in two different locations trying to reconcile what was said by whom and when.


It was quite fascinating two days of the event in a quiet and pleasant setting. Translators interpreted the foreign speakers while the latter talked about the very pressing issue in Kazakhstan.


If you are looking for simultaneous translators in Almaty, Astana or any part of Kazakhstan English to Russian or English to Kazakh, we will be happy to provide you with highly qualified and experienced translators.

In doing so, we will provide quality service throughout the event. You will be supervised by a dedicated coordinator who will:

Medical Simultaneous Translators in Astana at VII Eurasian Radiological Forum

BG team provided medical simultaneous translators in Astana at the VII Eurasian Radiological Forum took place on October the 10th -12th , 2017.


The primary objective of the forum was to discuss pressing issues of radiology, development of radiology and nuclear medicine services in Kazakhstan and new techniques in imaging diagnosis. Specific attention was brought to enhancing effectiveness in diagnosing socially significant disease (cardiac and vascular abnormality, pulmonary tuberculosis, breast cancer, musculoskeletal diseases osteoporosis and radiation safety).


This forum was timed to coincide with the 80th anniversary of the legendary Kazakh academician Khamzabayev Zhangali Khamzabayevich and the 40th anniversary of the Kazakh Radiological Society.


The event was marked with speech by the Vice-Minister of Health of the Republic of Kazakhstan Lyazzat Aktayeva, the President of the Kazakh Radiological Society Raushan Rakhimzhanova, the Senior Specialist in imaging diagnosis of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Kazakhstan, the member of the European Society of Cardiology, the European Society of Radiology, member of the Radiological Society of North America, Vice-President of the European School of Radiologists in Astana Dautov Tairkhan Bekpolatovich as well as well-known radiologists from Korea, China, Austria, the Switzerland, Czech Republic, Turkey, Russia, and others.


Also, the forum hosted a symposium of friendship between the Korean and Kazakh Radiological Society for cardiothoracic imaging during which Kazakh and Korean experts shared their invaluable experience.


This time around the BG company acted as a provider of equipment rental services and conference services and simultaneous interpretation services.


Our team provided everything necessary for the event, specifically the simultaneous interpretation equipment (interpreter’s desk, interpretation desk, interpreter booth, engineer), receivers, desk microphones, slide projector with screen, sound amplification (speakers), speaker’s stand.


The BG company also provided spoken simultaneous interpreters in Astana in the English-Russian language pair.


During the 2 days of the forum, about 44 speakers gave talk. One can imagine what the pace of work was and at what speed the speakers had to talk to share their multiple years of experience within just 15 minutes.


And this meant some strain on our medical translators. But it was all the same for our interpreters. BG translators have seen much more.


During the event, the simultaneous interpretation equipment worked smoothly and like clockwork. The peculiarity of the forum was that this time around the client requested to install euro-booth for the interpreters (a fully enclosed booth) and not a desk booth, as was the case at previous forums. The interpreter’s booth provided complete sound and noise insulation for interpreters and the audience.


The BG team was pleased to act as a partner in holding such an important event in the professional life of Kazakhstani and foreign radiologists.


And the most important thing is the satisfaction and gratitude of our client. As the President of the Kazakh Radiological Society Raushan Ibzhanovna Rakhimzhanova put it: «This is the first time that we had such a high level of simultaneous translation and setting up equipment for simultaneous translation. I want to thank you for the excellent work!»

The equipment involved: simultaneous interpretation equipment (interpreter’s desk, interpretation desk, interpreter booth, engineer), receivers, desk microphones, slide projector with screen, sound amplification (speakers), speaker’s stand).
