Arkadia Translations is proud to support the efforts at Fiera Milano with consecutive interpretation between Italian and French for a Tunisian medical team working in the new hospital set up at Portello Fiera in Milan, being used to treat Covid-19 patients. The initiative, on Saturday 11 April, was of the upmost importance, as evidenced by the presence of government representatives who welcomed the team at the airport, including representatives from the Lombardy regional administration, the Tunisian Ambassador to Italy and the Consul General of Tunisia in Milan.
The project presented a number of critical challenges, including pressing time, which meant working through the night of Friday 10 April until the following morning, to arrive at the obvious but non-negligible security measures that we must guarantee in this period, making the management of our interpreters even more challenging. Arkadia succeeded in finding a highly qualified medical interpreter with previous experience in hospitals. These are the challenges that have allowed Arkadia to affirm itself as a solid organisation in the field of translation. For over twenty years, Arkadia has risen to the occasion, consolidating the synergy with both its clients and teams, which is the cornerstone for the success of complex projects such as these.
Below, the ANSA press release that presented details of the initiative.
