CONFERENCE CENTER TRANSLATION

SALT LAKE CITY, UT: CONFERENCE CENTER TRANSLATION UPDATE

OWNER: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

ARCHITECT: Curtis Miner Architecture

SIZE: 144,000 SF

 

Zwick performed the remodel and technology upgrades to the Conference Center translation area. The semi-annual conference for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is broadcast live around the world to its members. Beneath the 21,000-seat auditorium is a translation area where real-time translation is provided for broadcast in 44 languages, with delayed translation for 60 more languages.


Approximately 800 people, many of them volunteers, work before and during general conference to deliver the interpretation live to millions of listeners around the world. 


In each of the Conference Center’s 58 translation booths, interpreters see and hear the broadcast as they interpret. Two people manage each session while evaluators monitor translation quality from outside the booth. Thirty languages are interpreted in-country and transmitted back to the Conference Center, where the audio is combined with video and broadcast via satellite with only a few seconds’ delay.

Guided by our core values, Zwick Construction delivers impressive projects of all kinds in many industries.
