Red Sea Translation Team Interprets at Dubai Expo 2020
Dubai, 1 October 2021 – 31 March 2022: Red Sea Translation’s Adel Alhaimi and his team were invited to provide interpretation services on behalf of a number of major translation and event company partners for the 6 month EXPO 2020 which was moved forward to 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In spite of the pandemic, the Expo saw participation from 192 countries with a staggering 24 million visitors.
Adel and the team were kept busy on-site with Arabic-English simultaneous interpretation, with the ongoing need to provide PCR test results a frequent challenge. Where possible, interpretation was performed remotely but nevertheless, Adel reported enjoying the on-site vibe immensely, along with the excitement that EXPO 2020 generated.
Several other projects were completed during short breaks from EXPO and we shall report more about these in a future article.
For those that missed the EXPO, this short video sums it up succinctly:
