ABU DHABI 16 NOVEMBER 2017: Red Sea’s Adel Alhaimi was invited by Simtran (Dubai) to conduct Simultaneous Interpreting at one of the world’s largest oil and gas events, the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference, hosted by ADNOC (Abu Dhabi National Oil Company).

The ADIPEC website gives some mind-blowing statistics on the size of the conference and exhibition and we invite you to take a look:

Surprizingly, the event does not seem to have received the coverage it deserves in the mainstream media, but Gulf News covered some aspects:

“Adipec was attended by top executives from Saudi Aramco, BP, China National Petroleum Corporation, Total, Pemex, among others apart from energy ministers from UAE, Lebanon, Pakistan, Egypt, Oman, Bahrain and Sudan.”

Adel gratefully accepted the challenge to perform at optimum level and was satisfied that he put every effort into delivering the critical and strategic speeches at a high level of excellence.

The pressure on an interpreter at an event of this scope is immense – this is not a job for the faint-hearted – and we look forward to Adel providing us with some insights on how simultaneous interpreters cope (and thrive) on the job. 

A special word of thanks to Antony at Simtran for the opportunity to participate in the event.

Life has its lighter moments, even in the life of an interpreter (which can become a stressful swirl of technical jargon at times) and it was refreshing for Adel to participate in a program designed to stimulate creative thought and innovation.

Despite the seemingly “fun” aspect of such a course, the demands on the Interpreter still remain high, with a need to remain creative – so as to facilitate communication in a way that will complement the program.
