JR Language Translation attends the SID Conference

On May 30th, our Translation Company will be joining professionals representing governments, universities, international development organizations, and other organizations at the Society for International Development’s annual 2019 conference.  Held at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, DC, the focus of SID’s 2019 conference is “Solving Wicked Problems of Development.”  Attendees can attend lectures by keynote speakers, explore the exhibit area, and take advantage of networking time.

This will be the third year that JR Language Translation Services has attended the Society for International Development’s annual conference.  Language services are closely tied to international development, and our team is always excited to find out new ways to serve the global community through professional translation and interpretation services and to meet other professionals from around the world working on International development.

What Is SID 2019 All About?

The Society for International Development’s mission statement is: “To bring diverse constituencies together to debate critical ideas, innovations, policies, and practices, advancing equitable development.”  SID focuses on promoting global human welfare through human rights campaigns, advancing education, furthering access to medical care, and countless other causes.  SID also serves as a connecting point for individuals and organizations devoted to advancing the well-being of humanity as a whole, and as a body of knowledge about international events.  The organization works with local governments, schools, and aid agencies to offer localized solutions to issues from human trafficking to natural disaster relief around the world.

Why is our Translation Company participating in the SID Conference?

JR Language is attending the 2019 conference because language services are instrumental for organizations like SID to communicate and operate.  Globalization is powered by communication, and communication breaks down when there are language barriers.  JR Language provides professional translation and interpretation services across all languages and industries to ensure that language barrier do not hinder the advancement of human rights, science, and global conservation.  We plan to meet professionals in the public and private sector to exchange information, contacts, and resources.

How Will the Conference Help JR’s Mission?

Our language services agency’s mission is to help improve multilingual communication between people of different cultures, countries, and languages around the globe.

We expect SID 2019 to give JR Language even more insights into how our language services can help international development organizations work.  Countless agencies use language services to enable communication on all levels.  Here are a few:

  • Governments use professional translators and interpreters with security clearance to ensure accuracy in their communications with multilingual contacts.
  • International organizations must work with language professionals to share news and information through video, print, websites and audio media regarding research, and common projects.
  • International law is intrinsic to International Development. International law requires experienced legal professionals fluent in the source language, the target language, and all legal systems involved for accurate legal translation.
  • Global education, also important in International development, relies on academic translation services to share knowledge across national, linguistic, and cultural lines.
  • Training and exchange of technology are also present in International Development and crosses language barriers with the help of Translation of documents, video translation, and translation of presentations and reports.

Working Toward a Better Future

Our translation company provides language translation services in Washington DC  and works with organizations in International Development, USAID, NGO ‘s, and other government and private organizations to ensure accurate multilingual communication.


Our translation agency is dedicated to offering quality language solutions and interpretation services to enable communication between individuals and organizations.  No matter the language or place, we want to make sure ideas and information flow and communicate flawlessly.  That is how we help civil rights, medicine, and science to grow and serve humanity.
