With conference interpreters, your international event is bound to be a success

Professional support for your event

Socially and economically, our world is more intertwined than ever before. People and companies are building and fostering global relationships every day. It is crucial that everyone understands each other. This is where conference interpreters come in, working daily to facilitate effective communication between people from different lingual and cultural backgrounds.

The success of international events is dependent on the quality of interpretation. However much of an expert your speaker might be, their presentation is not going to go down well if the audience cannot understand their main points.

Organisers of international or multilingual events often face a sea of questions:

  • How many conference interpreters do you need?
  • Do you want simultaneous or consecutive interpreting – or both?
  • What kind of technical equipment do the interpreters need?
  • How can you find suitable interpreters?
  • How can you ensure that these interpreters have the right qualifications and sufficient experience?

The VKD and our conference interpreters have the right answers to all these questions. Our members will draw on their extensive expertise to help you ensure the quality of your event. If needed, they will carefully and meticulously help you plan the event and, during the event itself, will ensure successful communication by booking the services of highly qualified VKD colleagues.

Take your time with the event itself. Our members will ensure it is properly communicated.
