Our most recent interpreting service, the third edition of the Sharjah FDI Forum – held on September 19 and 20 at Al Jawaher Reception & Convention Centre in Sharjah – focused on the fourth industrial revolution and the role of Foreign Direct Investment in global economy with relation to advanced tech developments such as AI, internet of things and robotics, as well as leverage investment opportunities from Sharjah and the UAE.
The event organized by Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq), and the Sharjah FDI Office (Invest in Sharjah), the foreign investment promotion department at the Authority, had the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Dr. Sultan bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Member of the Supreme Council Ruler of Sharjah.
Being chosen to provide interpreting services for this high-profile occasion has been an exciting and challenging opportunity for our team of professionals.
Our selected Senior Interpreters had to guarantee the smooth development of a complex conference featuring a comprehensive programme of key-note addresses, industry-led discussion panels and presentations from top officials to be translated from Arabic to English and vice versa.
A wide range of different topics, data and information, often of technical nature, had to be professionally conveyed to the audience or translated for the speakers.
Thanks to their extensive experience at the highest levels, our Professional Simultaneous Interpreters carefully chose the most appropriate terms for each intervention, comment or question – playing a key role in facilitating the exchange of knowledge and expertise on the current and future economic situation in the region and on the assessment of the outlook for its investment prospects.
The event – bringing together a galaxy of renowned decision makers, senior global businessmen and highly regarded experts from the public and private sectors – saw the participation of an audience of roughly 800 attendees only on the first day.
Being in charge for the language services, we were requested to provide not only the best simultaneous interpreters but a full package of services, including Bosch conference equipment and live technical support for the duration of the event.
This meant setting up and guaranteeing the perfect performance of our system of soundproof booth, interpreting consoles, microphones, transmitters and 500 portable headsets, used to relay the translation to the numerous attendees.
Being an Institutional event with speakers such as Sheikh Bodour Al Qasimi and UAE Ministry of Economy H.E. Sultan bin Saeed Al Mansouri – the forum left no room for mistakes.
We, at Langpros, were pleased to accept the challenge and give our contribution to the opening of this great window on the future of the regional and global investment landscape..
