The Conference Center Translation Offices is just one of many remodel and expansion projects that Zwick Construction has completed.

CONFERENCE CENTER TRANSLATION

SALT LAKE CITY, UT: CONFERENCE CENTER TRANSLATION 

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

Architect: Method Studio

Contract Value: Confidential

Size: 12,000 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.
