How to organise a high-level political conference - the Salzburg
Interpretation in more than 10 languages of
23 official EU languages
language pair combinations (approx.)
man-days of technical support
During the Polish Presidency at the Council of the European Union,
the Conference of Parliamentary Committees for Union Affairs
of Parliaments of the European Union was held
on 2-4 October 2011 in the Polish Parliament in Warsaw. Invenire was
selected for the job following a very
demanding public tender. The COSAC conference is arguably the
largest undertaking in Polish conference interpreting to date. The
two-day conference was interpreted simultaneously into 23 official
EU languages by 50 interpreters, half of them
not based in Poland; 400 language pair combinations were enabled.
We installed 22 booths, including two three-interpreter booths
for key languages, 120 multi-phones, 500
digital receivers, eighteen 46" LCD screens and directional cameras.
Invenire provided a comprehensive service,
from interpreter team to equipment and
shipment in a dedicated long vehicle. The event was a huge and
undoubted challenge in terms of interpretation, conference
technology and logistics. Our Project Management had to work with
great precision to coordinate all the various aspects: contract
interpreters, book their air tickets and accommodation, ensure
meticulous information flow, assemble the appropriate equipment base
- with back-ups, manage the team of conference technicians and
handle financial settlements during and after the conference. At
this high-level event, our team had to ensure that all service staff
followed diplomatic protocol.
