Presidents Day

Presidents’ Day is celebrated the third Monday in February, originally established in 1885. It has evolved as a tribute to George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Statesmen of their caliber are in short supply as is evident in this presidential political season. Up until recent history, some states honored both Washington, who was born Feb. 22, and Abraham Lincoln, who was born Feb. 12. Other states honor Washington and Thomas Jefferson, but not Lincoln, on this holiday and some states honor all the presidents. In 1968, President’s Day was made an official federal holiday honoring our founding fathers and Abraham Lincoln, who were born in February. This also served the purpose of giving federal and other employees a long weekend to celebrate with family and friends and reflect on being an American.
Even businesses get involved in the celebration by offering special deals and sales the weekend of President’s Day. At American Language there was a lot going on, we had an impressive number of projects. We will be sharing our experience on some of the projects. To start with, we completed a translation project this month form Tucker Ellis which is a full service law firm with more than 190 lawyers practicing nationwide. The project was translation of a legal document from Russian to English and we completed the project maintaining high standard of quality. In addition to that, certification of the document was also taken care. Another translation project was from AMECO which is the world’s leader in integrated mobile equipment and tool solutions. They provide a wide range of services to construction, mining, government and industrial markets across the globe. We translated ‘3M Mexico PPE’ document from English to Spanish, the document was regarding hearing protection.

Being a full service language provider encompasses many things. We are an authorized William Sound dealer and sell specialized interpreting equipment to businesses that use it for their conferences, training seminars, and events. Is it better to buy equipment or rent? AML Global does both on a regular basis. Companies often evaluate their overall costs in renting versus possible purchasing and decide which works better. If you are using your equipment most working days in the foreseeable future, and you have the storage space for it and capacity to keep it maintained, owning may be cheaper in the long-run. A recent example of it was American Language Services had to sell interpreting equipment to Seventh Day Adventist Church. The equipment sold were Headset & Receivers, Potable transmitters + headset and William Sound Case.
