November 2021

You know it’s the real deal when November comes around. Temperatures drop down, Thanksgiving is almost here, the holidays are coming soon, and the end of a busy year seems just around the corner. But it’s not so bad at all. World Kindness Day, Veterans Day and, of course many people’s favorite, Thanksgiving, are days when we all can take a breather to reflect and appreciate the people and life around us. All while being cautious of COVID-19, of course!

There were quite a few ‘firsts’ that happened in this month when it comes to world history. November saw the opening of the first medical school for women in Boston. In South Africa, all-race elections were held for the first time. Britain, more specifically London, was also the place where the first electrified underground railway was opened. The first Opium War between China and Britain also began during this month. Carl Stokes, mayor of Cleveland, Ohio, was the first African American to become mayor in the U.S and L. Douglas Wilder became the first African American governor in U.S. history when he was elected as governor of Virginia. Ireland also got its first female president with Mary Robinson being elected in November of 1990. Important events also happened in the medicine field, with the first experimental blood transfusion which took place in Great Britain using two dogs. The discovery of x-rays by Wilhelm Roentgen also happened during November.

Other firsts include: the first issue of the New York Weekly Journal, Howard Hughes’ first and only flying boat’s flight, the first transcontinental flight across America, and the world’s first inhabited space capsule launched by the Soviet Russia. President Franklin D. Roosevelt was elected to a fourth term, defeating his then-rival Thomas E. Dewey and Brazil also became a republic.

Some major political events also occurred in November. These include the establishment of the European Union, independence of Panama, end of the Franco-Spanish war (Treaty of Pyrenees) and the establishment of the U.S. Marine Corps as part of the U.S. Navy.

Some Interesting Translation, Interpreting, & Media Projects Completed in August

November proved to be a gangbuster busy month full interesting projects, difficult deadlines and varied work for our company. Even with COVID-19 still lurking around we covered a wide variety of work in a multitude of industries and languages.

The interpreting department is continuing to see a constant increase in both On-Site and Virtual interpreting, in part, thanks to the vaccine against Covid and the rules in place to prevent it from spreading and overall business confidence of the economy.

Our interpreting department provided 3 days of on-site Japanese interpreting for a nationwide event production company in the sports industry. We also provided 3 virtual Turkish simultaneous interpreters for 4 days of online training between the US and Turkish governments for a major government agency. In addition, we provided 3 days of on-site Russian interpreting in Florida for a conference put on by a leading virtual event provider.

In the multi-media field, we started a huge transcription, translation, and voiceover project for the DOD, through one of our mutual Governmental NGO providers. This project involves 24 videos to transcribed and translated to Spanish, French & EU Portuguese, from over 13 hours of audio, with a 5-6 week deadline.
