Verbio’s President and ECO Board member Virginia Joplin, shares their experience and what a small, specialized international language service firm can deliver to international diplomats and global organizations.
In June, Verbio sent two of their French conference interpreters to assist NATO representatives in important, high level meetings and business tours being held in Seattle. The use of interpreters was critical to key conversations between the NATO representatives’ and leaders of multinational organizations throughout the Seattle area. NATO initially had problems identifying French interpreters on the west coast due to low availability. The French American Chamber of Commerce of the Pacific Northwest responded to this challenge with an introduction of Verbio to NATO. Joplin was able to provide rapid assistance, securing two French conference interpreters. Then, during the meetings one of the NATO representative's Italian interpreters fell ill, straining the resources and leaving their other interpreter without a partner -- it's customary in simultaneous interpretation for interpreters to work in pairs and stagger their translation time due to the demanding nature of real time translation. Verbio interpreters stepped in to seamlessly support the lead Italian interpreter enabling an effective dialog of the NATO parties to continue. The right expertise, the right resources, and swift action showed true excellence of this Oregon based translation company.
Virginia Joplin is the President of Verbio and an Export Council of Oregon and SW Washington adviser. Virginia's company brings unique expertise to the international trade community and the business exporting community.
