Last week, we visited several reasons why high quality translations are a must, especially in the corporate world. Finding a legitimate translator or translation service ensures that the right message is delivered across languages, ultimately protecting the integrity of your business. This week, let’s take a look at a specific case study that exemplifies this idea.
NELSON MANDELA FUNERAL SIGN LANGUAGE INTERPRETER CONTROVERSY
You may recall hearing about scandal surrounding the sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela’s funeral, who is now dubbed a phony by South Africa’s hearing impaired community, who said his signing for US President Barack Obama and other world leaders amounted to little more than “flapping his arms around” (Source- Agence France-Presse).
The following video further explains this controversy, and how serious an issue it actually is. Don’t let this happen to you or your business! We are here to help you make the right decision when choosing an interpreter or translator.
