Our Power is our Care, Our Power is our Presence!
 
"Netflix supports over 20 languages, many of which aren't dubbed, so subtitles are often the only way for foreign viewers to follow the plot. While the streaming company holds itself to a high standard, the internet abounds with tales of wonky translations."
The book "How to get it right when contracting Conference Interpreting services" by Helen Campbell and Lola Bendana is available in hard copy now.
 
We offer free hard copies to educational institutions, clients, government organizations and those who can have an impact educating the public and advocating on the importance of quality interpreting. 
 
The authors would like to thank the following expert Conference Interpreters who contributed with this book:
 
Andrew Clifford
Caroline Napier
Jacques Roland
Taous Selhi
Izabel Souza (formerly Arocha)
 
"Over the past few years, you might have noticed a surfeit of articles covering current research on bilingualism. Some of them suggest that it sharpens the mind, while others are clearly intended to provoke more doubt than confidence..."
Empowerment Tips
 
Having More Energy
 
Have you ever wondered how some people show up on Monday full of energy? How some people seem to be 'on' all the time? It's no secret. There are strategies you can put into practice that will take your energy to the next level. Here are a few: 
 
Get 7-8 Hours Every Night
Sleep is arguably the most important factor in having energy for the following day. Ideally, you want to aim between 7-8 hours a night consistently. That being said, everyone is different and has different needs so do what works best for you. 
 
Get Out of Bed... NOW!
The one thing that will drain your energy in the morning is staying in bed after initially waking up. Put your alarm clock across the room so you are forced to stand up and start your day. Get up and get moving! 
 
Move Your Body
Exercise is the easiest way to start feeling more energized right away. Make sure that your activity levels aren't too high because this can result in fatigue. A quick jog or walk in the morning will do the trick! 
 
Get Around High Energy
You become the sum of the environment you are in. If you get around high energy people, places, or events, you will become high energy. Schedule out time to go to the gym, hang out with motivated people, or join a meet-up group so that you can keep your level of energy consistent. 
 
Take a Stretch Break
If you feel yourself powering down but have only conquered half the day, stand up and get a quick 5 minute stretch. By doing this, you can oxygenate your body and get ready to crush the rest of the day!
 
We could all use more energy. More energy to use with our family, our friends, and with the things that matter most to us. Use these easy strategies to get a daily energy boost so you can fully enjoy the things that matter most.

"Are you burned out? Do you feel drained? Do you want to know how to effectively recharge your batteries? Researchers from around the globe have been exploring how we can best use our leisure time to feel refreshed, replenished and recovered."
 
"There are some 100,000 commercial flights each day in the world which means that literally millions of interactions take place between pilots and air traffic controllers, very often in a foreign language since English is the international language of civil aviation. "
