2018 a record year for ELIT Language Services and Calliope Interpreters

ELIT Language Services and Calliope Interpreters, the worldwide network of AIIC Consultant Interpreters, bids farewell to 2018 having yet again performed outstandingly.

In less than 12 months, ELIT and Calliope Consultant Interpreters organised interpreting services for 1,426 conferences, events and meetings, in 50 countries and 40 languages, which is the best performance ever in the history of our international network.

This has been a year full of exciting experiences, from the large scale interpreting assignment on the Symphony of the Seas, the world’s largest cruise ship, to covering high-level meetings in the context of Bulgaria’s EU Presidency, the opening up of Calliope to include sign language interpreting, and Pope Francis’ historic visit to Ireland for the Pastoral Congress of the World Meeting of Families (WMOF) -who addressed 37,000 participants through Calliope interpreters.

ELIT Language Services is a 100% Greek company, mainly active on the EU market. It is certified according to ISO9001 and ISO 17100 and is the exclusive member of Calliope Interpreters for Greece, Serbia, Turkey, Malta and several other countries in the region.

Calliope Interpreters comprises experienced Consultant Interpreters of the International Association of Conference Interpreters with vast experience and is probably the largest conference interpreting provider in the world, barring large international organisations. Calliope Interpreters have covered interpreting for Olympic Games, G20 Summits, European Union Presidencies and thousands of high-level conferences and meetings all over the world.
