Earth Day was on April 22, or what the United Nations calls International Mother Earth Day, a day where people unite in order to both appreciate and respect the earth’s environment. So take some time to appreciate mother earth and reflect on how as a society we can do more to protect and respect the earth’s environment. At American Language Services we have been reflecting on our recent projects and ensuring we make our clients happy.

Interpreting Projects Completed in April
We recently completed a project for AFYA, INC; a technical and professional service firm with a mission to improve the health and well-being of the under privileged. This was a training conference for an AmeriCorps training program on poverty that took place in Phoenix, Arizona. The training conference was over a 4 day span where Spanish and Korean interpreters were required along with portable headsets and transmitters. The project went off perfectly and kept our client happy.
Another interesting project accomplished in April was for APEX Meetings & Events; a conference and event management service. The interpreting job was for a conference event in Washington D.C. for National Asian Summit; an event that gathers hundreds of South Asian organizations within the U.S. In addition, the 2017 Summit marked the ten-year anniversary for the event. It is a 4 day conference event and several interpreters were needed for American Sign Language, and several Asian languages including Mandarin, Korean, Japanese and Thai. The event went off impeccably and our interpreters did a great job.
