Translation and Interpretation

In January 2015, Chrisbert Consult (U) Ltd was hired to provide; Translation and Interpretation services for the 10th Africa Symposium on Statistical Development [ASSD] that took place in Kampala, Uganda. The symposium had a theme; “A Decade of Statistical Development: Revolutionising Censuses and Civil Registration and Vital Statistics towards Africa Agenda 2063”. We had a team of 6 Interpreters and 5 translators that did simultaneous Interpretation and Translation between English and French for the three day conference. While interpretation was mainly done for conference presentations in either language, we equally did translations for documents such as; i) conference program ii) conference resolutions iii) conference chairman’s report iv) conference evaluation form v)  key note addresses, executive summaries of some papers and main recommendations  as well as vi) daily reports from rapporteurs. We did this to the satisfaction of the then Executive Director of Uganda Bureau of Statistics [UBOS] that we were answerable to.
