Our Power is our Care, Our Power is our Presence!
 
"From Harari, spoken in eastern Ethiopia, to Bukhori, spoken by Bukharan Jews in central Asia, an organization is looking to record Toronto's linguistic diversity before it's too late."
The book "How to get it right when contracting Conference Interpreting services" by Helen Campbell and Lola Bendana will be available in hard copy in January.
 
We will 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)
 
"Windhoek-A court has put the case of two Chinese nationals accused of illegal possession of rhino horns on hold because the available court interpreter lacked suficient mastery of Mandarin to translate."
Empowerment Tips
 
Say Goodbye to Getting Sick!
 
Are there some days that you feel under the weather? Do you catch a cold every so often? Are you part of the group that is affected by 'flu season'? If you are then this article is for you. 
 
Eat Live Foods
Ideally you want to aim for your plate being 70% greens. Eat avocado, spinach, broccoli and other alkaline, water rich foods. Incorporate things such as fruits, nuts and seeds as well to have a balanced source of protein, carbs, and fats. 
 
Reduce Alchohol 
Alchohol creates acidity in the body, which then lowers your bodies defences against illness. You don't need to eliminate it, (unless you are currently ill) just reduce your current intake level to a minimum. A glass of wine or two on the weekend won't hurt!
 
The Drink of Life
Ditch the sugary juice, fizzling pop, and energy drinks and replace them with water. Since the majority of our bodies are made up of water, we need a significant amount to stay hydrated and healthy. For a healthy adult, aim for half your bodyweight in ounces.
 
Move Your Body
Exercise is one of the best ways to keep your body in top health. Illness cannot exist in someone that is consistently engaging their body physically. For at least 20 minutes a day, find a way to move your body and get the blood flowing throughout your system.
 
Stay Consistent
Healthy living isn't a '10 day challenge', it's a lifestyle. It's a decision to want to feel better every single day. Commit to adopting great nutritional and physical habits into your daily routine so that you can see some real results.  
 
Whether you're currently ill or you consider yourself healthy, these strategies can benefit anyone who is looking to take their health to the next level. Apply one or apply them all to feel amazing, heal your body, and upgrade your health.

  • Public Works and Government Services Canada – PWGSC  (Translation Bureau Accreditation)
  • The Association of Translators and Interpreters of Ontario – ATIO
