Alain Balanche: Simultaneous interpreting for a 6 week course on Forest Governance

The Centre for Development and Training at the University of Wolverhampton runs a 6 week course each year on International Forest Governance. This year the course was run in June-July 2012, and welcomed participants from 11 countries, including French speakers from the Congo Basin and Ivory Coast. From different backgrounds and professions, the participants learned about forest governance and efforts to reduce illegal logging.

Many topics were covered, with a wide range of inputs from external speakers as well as core staff and tutors. Alain interpreted for French-speaking delegates for 5 weeks, which included a 2-day “Illegal Logging Update Meeting” at Chatham House, open to a public audience, using simultaneous interpreting all the time.

We had some very lively discussions and highly technical speakers, all of which Alain dealt with very professionally with excellent interpreting skills, using the simultaneous technique via a headset. He was cheerful and proactive throughout the time he worked with us and related very well to the participants.

I have no hesitation in recommending Alain’s services and would be happy to provide further details.

Yours faithfully
