Fun Fact: Are you growing business relationships with Asian colleagues or prospects? Advertising the event(s) in Denver is a good way to hook their interest. Did you know that John Denver is a much-loved musical phenomenon for much of Asia? From the karaoke parlors of Japan to the bars of China and Korea, “Take Me Home, Country Roads” is a staple piece of music. The images and concepts John Denver sang about in his easy-to-understand English made him well-loved around the globe and many international fans remain curious about the Rocky Mountains and open prairies described in his songs.

Language fluency doesn’t equate with conference interpretation
A basic grasp of a foreign language, and even full-scale “bilingual ability” doesn’t make for professional conference interpreting and translations – not even a certification as a court interpreter. The skill sets required at the conference interpretation level are grounded in a fluid grasp of a particular language, but also require specific training, education, and experience – particularly when you’re establishing or growing your international foothold.
That’s why it’s so important that you distinguish the difference between a Spanish- or Chinese-speaking employee, secretary or team member who offers their “interpreting services” from the professionals. They simply can’t keep up in an intense scenario where simultaneous interpreting is required. In fact, there are distinctions to be made within the professional arena as well. For example, community interpreters are very different from conference interpreters; although community and court interpreters may advertise their skills as conference-level, they don’t have the same level of training or experience.
The interpreting team at CCA are conference interpreters. This means that in addition to the education, training and experience listed below, they are available to provide the same types of simultaneous and consecutive interpreting services provided at events such as G-8/G-20 summits, the Olympic Games, and presidential and ministerial meetings, as well as the level of skill required by the United Nations family of agencies and the European Union.
When you trust your interpreting services to CCA, you can relax and know that the interpretations will be accurate and that the energetic and feeling-based nuances will be conveyed with finesse both ways.
- Hold graduate degrees in conference interpretation from accredited universities around the globe.
- Have certification, accreditation, memberships and/or affiliation with our industry’s top organizations including TAALS, AIIC, the United Nations, European Union, the US Department of State, etc.
- Can show proof for at least 200 hours and/or five years of consistent conference interpretation.
- Are passionate about assimilating with your team, and learning all they can about your niche, to provide seamless and easy communication streams.
Give Chang-Castillo and Associates a call (+1 (877) 708-0005) or contact us directly online to learn more about simultaneous and consecutive interpreting services. We’ll help you determine which services are best for which events and are happy to put together a competitive language services package for your Denver events.
Professional translators that respect accuracy, tone, and cultural sensitivities
Translating is more than taking one word and changing it into the same word in another language; that’s what machine translators do, and is the reason the results are often incorrect, inaccurate or just plain silly. This is due to the fact that much of the language used in everyday communications – corporate communication, email, speeches, etc. – include rich contextual supports (and personality) via idioms, metaphors, similes, etc. However, those tools of language are not the same – and not easily translated – between one language and another.
The professional team of translators at CCA are conscientious about every project they take on, guaranteeing that your original meaning and intention will be preserved, while simultaneously being converted into a language, feel and tone that lands respectfully and sensibly with the target audience.
Our translators are happy to work with any type of project, including:
- Government documents
- Corporate communications
- Speeches and transcripts
- Marketing materials
- Presentations and demos
- Website and social media posts
- Technical manuals
- Training documents
- Employee manuals
- And anything else on your agenda
Contact CCA and we’ll give you a fuller explanation of how we operate. Our three-step quality assurance protocols mean we can guarantee 100% accurate translations that you and your brand will be proud of.
Interpreting rental equipment means you’re not at the mercy of your venue
Interpreting rental equipment is absolutely precious to your interpreters because the ability to hear clearly, without any interference, and to be heard is essential for a successful experience on all fronts.
Rather than trust your venue’s equipment is the right type, well-maintained and functioning properly, we recommend taking full control of the situation by renting high-quality interpreting equipment that comes equipped with a conference technician and full A/V support.
Our rental equipment offerings include:
- UN-style soundproof booths
- Both FM and Infrared (IR) transmitters/receivers (they each have their pros and cons depending on the location/situation so you want to make sure you have the right type for your own needs)
- Portable mics and headsets for walking tours or hands-free demos and trainings
- Participant headsets
- And more
Contact us here at CCA for a competitive estimate. Our technical experts and interpreters will run down your itinerary list and help you decide which equipment you’ll need, and when. Once there, you’ll never have to worry about any technical glitches or embarrassing malfunctions that lead you hanging.
Teleconferences connect international business professionals
The reality is that international business professionals simply can’t make it to every event they want to attend. Whether it’s you who can’t make it to the next big symposium, or a global prospect who you missed when you were in Denver, teleconferencing is a solution.
Our innovative teleconferencing platform allows voice-to-voice and face-to-face connection regardless of how many miles separate you and your colleagues, prospects or partners. It’s compatible with your presentation software of choice, and our dedicated team of interpreters and translators are happy to facilitate the presentation, meeting, training or event.
The fluidity and success of your teleconference is our top priority which is why we send our technicians along with the equipment. We’ll keep the technical aspects in check, so you can go about the business of the work at hand.
Are you preparing for an upcoming event in Denver? Contact us here at Chang-Castillo and Associates. We provide platinum-standard language solutions and we look forward to showing you what international business relationships, negotiations – and even tough conversation – can look like when you have the right interpreters and translators supporting your team.
