Simultaneous Interpretation and Translation Services in Nashville
Long-held as the Country and Western Music Capital of the World, Nashville, Tennessee, now holds added claims to fame. Amid its reputation for southern hospitality and charm, Forbes recently named Nashville one of the “hottest cities” in America because of its ranking (2nd) in the United States for job growth, and because Nashville manages to be both progressive and diverse while remaining unarguably pro-business. Once they’ve arrived, international guests will hardly be able to move without bumping into yet another interesting southern historical landmark – one of the reasons Nashville’s nickname is “The Athens of the South”, with its full-size replica of the Greek Parthenon at Centennial Park, and Andrew Jackson’s Hermitage. In other words, Nashville is a fantastic place to host or attend your next international conference, summit, or tradeshow.
Music City’s range of conference venues, combined with an incredibly varied roster of restaurants, nightlife offerings, and museums (such as the Country Music Hall of Fame) provides a professional’s dream setting to educate, inform, and sway your multinational prospects and clients. To do that, however, you need an astute team of language solutions professionals who can do everything from interpret and translate your materials – or theirs – and make sure that they resonate with your target audience’s cultural preferences and sensitivities.

Use simultaneous interpreters who feel like they’re part of your team
Language is certainly the primary passion for our team of interpreters, but customer satisfaction is a close second. We’ve learned that the best interpreting experience takes place when the CCA team is able to learn as much as possible about your company, their mission, your international prospects and colleagues, the event goals, and – yes –even your competition. The more “fluent” we are with your event team, the more streamlined communication will be all the way around.

- Graduate degrees in simultaneous interpretation from accredited universities around the globe;

- Membership in AIIC(International Association of Conference Interpreters), and/or TAALS (The American Association of Language Specialists), both of which are only available via a peer review process.

Don’t let your Nashville messages get lost in translation
Naturally fluid and accurate translations are worth their weight in gold when it comes to educating, informing and marketing to global prospects. Even the smallest of errors or miscalculations in word choices can take a document from professional to amateur.
That’s why the CCA translation team uses a tried-and-true, three-phase protocol when translating documents. Our quality assurance protocol begins with the assignment of your project to one of our vetted project managers, and finishes with a third and final round of proofs, corrected translations (if needed), and formatting.
That’s the only way to guarantee our clients their words will be as natural, resonant and valid in their target language as they are in the original source material. We translate all manner and level of documents, including:
- Corporate communications
- Speech or presentation scripts and transcripts
- Marketing brochures
- Government documents
- Training and technical manuals
- Websites and social media posts
Enhance videos with subtitling and transcription services
Videos are a go-to platform for marketing, training and education. The production of high-quality videos isn’t cheap; now you can take that substantial, initial investment and capitalize on it with the addition of professional subtitling and transcription done by professional translators. Our objective is for you to have a video you can use over and over again – regardless of the target language audience – by simply selecting your subtitle language of choice before hitting “play”.

Don’t forget about equipment rentals and teleconference services
Can you hear us (and them) now? If not, we bet you took a gamble on your event venues professional interpreting equipment. Whoops! That was a mistake…
If there’s one thing we’ve learned, it’s that renting high-quality interpreting equipment from independent contractors is the only way your team is guaranteed to have crystal clear, glitch- and static-free communication. Relying on equipment provided by the venue is risky – and you’re more likely to find yourself with missing equipment or equipment that doesn’t work when you need it to.
The interpreting team at CCA will work closely with you to provide you with exactly what you need. We always have extra mics/headsets on hand “just in case,” and your rental contract includes an A/V and conference technician so you’re never left in the lurch.
Teleconferencing makes the world a smaller, friendlier place
Have you considered how teleconference equipment can shrink your competition? Our innovative telephonic platform is compatible with your presentation software of choice. The result is a personalized form of “face-to-face” communication that you can use to connect with international colleagues who weren’t able to attend the Nashville event, or to re-connect with prospects you’re interested in converting once you’ve all returned home.
As with our interpreting equipment, teleconferencing services include an on-site technician and can always be paired with professional interpreting and/or translation services as needed.
