InterpretAmerica heads to Boston in March for the fifth installment of think! Interpreting at the Globalization and Localization Association's (GALA) upcoming annual conference. For those unfamiliar with the organization, GALA is the world's largest industry association for language service companies.

Every year, GALA gathers together language service companies from all over the world to take stock of the industry, show off new products and technology, explore market trends and catch a glimpse of where the future of global multilingual communication is headed. The conference takes a deep dive into the business side of our profession and provides invaluable information and insight into big-picture issues. For the past five years, we've been privileged to be able to promote the interpreting profession at GALA through the think! Interpreting content track.

Over the coming weeks we will feature several videos of the conversations we had. We hope you enjoy them.

 For this video blog, InterpretAmerica Co-President Barry Slaughter Olsen speaks with Stephanie Fiorito from Continental Interpreting about why they chose to think! Interpreting

Check out this short video to learn how think! Interpreting is different and how you can follow the conference on social media. 

This week InterpretAmerica is at the Globalization and Localization Association's (GALA) annual conference in New York City. Many of you are familiar with the InterpretAmerica Summits that started in 2010, where we bring together interpreters, professional association leadership, language service companies and end users to raise the profile of interpreting. Think! Interpreting is different. This collaboration with GALA allows interpreting to be front and center at the annual conference of the largest trade assocaition for language services in the world.

think! Interpreting is going strong for the third year running. This year's installment is set for March 20-23 in New York City. Yet we find that many are still confused about just what think! Interpreting is. Here at InterpretAmerica, we've been organizing conferences for seven years, starting with the InterpretAmerica Summit in 2010 and later the first think! Interpreting in 2014. The Summit is bi-annual gathering of interpreting leadership and stakeholders that is run solely by InterpretAmerica.

Highlighting Interpreting to the Broader Language Services Industry

At InterpretAmerica, one key focus we have is to do whatever we can to make the interpreting profession as visible as possible. It's our belief that we cannot gain the credibility and recognition we want for our profession if no one really knows who we are and what we do. And that includes being seen and understood by our sister professions of translation and localization. 

Jost Zetzsche bequeaths Jeromobot to InterpretAmerica to continue his crusade of supporting translators, and now interpreters, during turbulent times. 

So this fall we are highlighting and participating in a variety of efforts to help celebrate and ultimately make interpreting more visible and better understood, including Proz.com's annual Virtual Conference on International Translation Day, launching The Tech-Savvy Interpreter, a new monthly column in the renowned Translator's Tool Box Journal, and think! Interpreting 2016.
