At the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games held from February 9 to 28, numerous HUFSans provided interpretation services to minimize the inconvenience caused by language barriers, helping the Olympics end in great success.
HUFS signed a business agreement with the organizing committee of the Winter Games in September of last year and dispatched volunteers in three fields: language services, national squad translation and protocol interpretation.
Language service volunteers were placed in the Doping Control Room or flash quotes interview locations to facilitate communication among key clients including players and reporters during the games.
Volunteers responsible for national teams interpreted and accompanied them closely until they left Korea. Translators who were in charge of protocols provided services to high-level officials, so-called Olympic family, regarding the schedule of games, events and important meetings.
