Conference technology provider buk Solutions (formerly Brähler ICS UK) and language teaching software provider Sanako UK have teamed up to provide Leeds University’s Centre for Translation Studies the next generation conferencing technology.
Dr Alina Secara, lecturer in translation studies and manager of the upgrade project, commented: “We’re very excited by this key investment. The new equipment will enhance the offering of a number of our existing courses, including the MA Conference Interpreting and Translation Studies which is included in the directory of good interpreting programmes by the International Association of Conference Interpreters (AIIC). This lab will further ensure that students are trained to use modern information and communication technologies in their workplace and we will continue to align our infrastructure with that of international institutions and the professional commercial sector.”
Duncan Conway, business development manager at buk Solutions, commented: “We are proud that our collaboration with Sanako has produced an advanced learning and teaching resource for students at the University of Leeds. We have installed some of the most advanced equipment available, using an audio-over-IP network that eliminates extensive cabling and more importantly enables the university to run the system on its existing building network, making it simple for students to access with no disruption or confusion.”
