World Forum Receives Translation Funding

""I think that people want peace so much that one of these days government had better get out of their way and let them have it." –Dwight David Eisenhower


IBM has announced that it will provide funding to the 2003 World Forum on Early Care and Education to make possible the simultaneous translation from English to Spanish for all plenaries and principal lectures. This means that at every time slot during the four day forum there will be one presentation available in Spanish. The first four World Forums were conducted in English, with translation into Greek in Athens and informal translating happening at the others. But with an expected large turn out of delegates from nations in Latin America it has been a priority of the World Forum organizers to be welcoming to Spanish-speaking early childhood delegates. Additional funding is being sought by the World Forum Host Committee in Mexico to provide simultaneous translation for the remaining 53 World Forum sessions.
