English-Portuguese Interpretation for a Hybrid Legal Conference

May 10, 2024

Our Client

Company name: B.A.B. Organization (Pseudonym)

What does the company do? 

Our client is a leading NGO of attorneys and legal experts, that plays a pivotal role in setting academic and ethical standards for the legal profession and advocating for justice under the law. 

Timeframe of the Interpretation: 2 hours

What do they need? 

They are planning to host a multinational conference event for legal professionals that will be a hybrid event wherein it will discuss the nuances of NGO law and civil participation. Our client needed robust legal interpretation support to ensure native Portuguese and English-speaking participants could engage with each other actively throughout the event. They requested to have certified legal interpreters specialized in the Portuguese and English languages for this event. 

The Challenges

Even though the event would only take a couple of hours, we encountered a couple of issues: First, managing the intricate demands of simultaneous interpretation for participants attending both in-person at the conference venue and those who are virtually participating from various global locations presented significant logistical challenges. Second, the successful integration of interpretation solutions within a hybrid meeting platform was crucial. This entailed seamless connectivity that allowed for real-time discussions without delays, ensuring that both remote and on-site participants could interact as if they were in the same room. 

Lastly, to uphold the high standards of legal interpretation needed for the complexities of NGO law and civil participation discussions, a team of expert interpreters with specialized knowledge in legal terminologies and practices was engaged. Rigorous quality control measures were implemented to verify the accuracy of interpretations, ensuring that every participant fully grasped the nuances and intricacies of the legal discourse.

To overcome the challenges faced during the hybrid event, we implemented two key solutions: first, we made sure to hire the best Portuguese legal interpreters for this project. Second, we employed advanced scheduling software and coordination techniques to manage the intricate demands of simultaneous interpretation for both in-person and virtual attendees.

Second, at Tomedes, we ensure to have two expert interpreters knowledgeable in NGO law and civil rights, fluent in both English and Portuguese. They were well-versed in the legal terminology and nuances related to the topics, ensuring precise and clear communication for better understanding and engagement.

Third, to ensure a flawless event, we conducted thorough pre-event testing of all technology and interpretation setups. This included simulating different scenarios and stress-testing the systems to identify and fix any issues beforehand, thus guaranteeing optimal performance and reliability during the actual event.

The Result

After the event, our client was amazed by how seamless the interpretations were, and they were pleased by the high engagement and overwhelmingly high positive feedback they received from both in-person and virtual attendees. They commended our interpreters’ adept handling of sector-specific terminology and the seamless integration of technical solutions ensured that all participants could engage meaningfully in the discussions.
