Last weekend was Memorial Day Weekend, meaning most of us had a 3-day weekend to commemorate this important Federal Holiday. Memorial Day is a time to honor all Americans who have died in military service for the United States. Many people will go away for the holiday, have parties, family gatherings or sports events. We also have summer right around the corner as the month of May is almost over. At American Language Services, we are looking forward to providing our clients with the best service possible.

Interesting Interpreting & Translation Projects Completed in May
AML-Global has been very busy with interpreting projects especially for school districts like the Montebello Unified School District. Throughout the month, we have been able to provide several different language interpreters for various reasons at all locations of the school district. For parent meetings, speech and language evaluations and many other reasons, we provided interpreters in 5 different languages; Arabic, Armenian, American Language Services, Mandarin and Vietnamese. Every project was a huge success.
A big translation project this month was finalized for Yukon Medical. A large document needed to be translated from English into 24 different languages; French, Spanish, Italian, German, Swedish, Dutch, Norwegian, Danish, Finnish, Portuguese, Turkish, Czech, Greek, Estonian, Hungarian, Arabic, Latvian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Slovenian, Slovak, Serbian and Simplified Chinese. This translation project went excellent.
There are many options to choose from in selecting appropriate audio equipment for your upcoming conference, meeting or event. When you speak to one of our representatives we will ask you pertinent questions about the event, location, subject matter, specific room details and the timing of things.
