A spectacular closing ceremony brought the 2016 Rio Olympics to a close on Sunday evening. More than 30 languages were represented at these Olympics from more than 200 countries. This is why we as language specialists hold a very important role in the Olympics – where cultural diversity is at its peak. Areas such as medical, press, social events and competition all need assistance with communicating clearly. We hold the key essential to communication among so many languages.
It provides a great feeling to know that as language translators, we can bring down so many barriers. If you are looking for an opportunity to enhance, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and become part of a strong team.
Furthermore, consider volunteering for one of the upcoming Olympic Games as an Olympics Translator where the learning experience would be great and your skills could be advanced. Here is a great article regarding the search for language volunteers for the 2020 Olympic Games.
