Working To Solve Social Problems Through Translation

impoverished-childrenIn a 2006 Gallup asked a random sample of Americans, “What is the most important challenge facing the United States today?” The most popular responses included the war in Iraq, terrorism, the economy, unemployment, immigration, health care, education, the energy crisis, and poverty and homelessness. In all of these responses, it’s interesting to think about how certified translators were needed, how they were used to addressing these problems and develop solutions.

But translation services workers aren’t only hired to work on solving domestic social problems. Translators, particularly French and Portuguese translators are commonly hired to help NGO’s solve even more complex problems in Africa. In 1990 the United Nations Development Program published its first annual Human Development Report, which measured the well-being of populations around the world according to a “human development index.” The human development index assesses three aspects of human growth: life expectancy; intelligence; and standard of living. The most recent report concluded that unless global action is taken right away, the world will gradually expeience mass poverty, division based on heavy inequalities, and threaten from common insecurities. Throughout the world, translation services are breaking down communication barriers, transmitting the message to audiences and have been instrumental in helping to develop proactive solutions.

Problems related to poverty and malnutrition, insufficient education, AIDS, substandard medical treatment, civil war, oppression of ethnic and religious groups, environmental destruction, and other social issues are international concerns. Such problems present both a threat and a challenge to our national and global security. Translators working with various NGO’s help facilitate increased awareness and understanding of these problematic social conditions throughout the world and are working to develop solutions.

China, Its Energy Requirements And The Steps Needed To Satisfy Them

China has been progressing at a very fast pace and the development of China’s energy sector has been significant. But the growing industrial sector of China is going to consume a lot more than the country is producing in terms of energy. China has developed its energy sector to the fullest and now the constraints imposed by the limited resources and the environment are a hindrance in the further augmentation of the country’s energy sector. This major encumbrance in China’s industrial growth needs to be dealt with, by removing the imbalance between the demand and supply of energy.

There can be a number of solutions to deal with this problem. China has signed agreements with other countries for long-distance energy transport which is going to be a viable step for the country’s economy.  A lot of intercultural communication has been witnessed between the Chinese officials/ investors and the representatives of other countries. China has its economic involvement in most of the countries, either through trade, or through its investors. China has been bringing a lot of business for the translation service companies as well. A Chinese translator from the Boston translation services told us how many official documents in Chinese have been translated to other languages and vice versa.

The Chinese economists are well aware that the country’s energy needs will rapidly grow as the industrial sector has room for more expansion. China has now become world’s second largest power consumer after the United States. The country is not only the second largest power consumer, but also the second largest economy in the world after America. China’s efforts to improve and expand its energy sector have been continuous. The implementation of the Electric Power Law in April 1996 was a major breakthrough for the China’s electric power industry. This has facilitated the investors, managers and consumers, all. This initiative by the government has been a landmark in expediting the generation, distribution and consumption of electricity. The marketing analysts, is a well-known translation service company. The company   (   has done a lot of legal/financial translations for various international organizations in the past. China, because of its economic ties with other countries, has been a great buyer of translation services. Language translators have lots of opportunities waiting for them in China (or elsewhere) as a result of the Chinese involvement in other regions, just like the African continent.

China needs to work on enhancing its long distance energy transport because due to numerous constraints  posed by “environmental capacity, development conditions and technical capability”, there is not much hope that China will be able to improve its energy supply. Coal production cannot be increased because it would lead to the destruction of water resources. Coal burning is already causing a lot of environmental issues. Air pollution is the biggest of China’s problems because of excessive coal burning in industry. Temporarily, the oil and gas reserves of the country cannot be fully utilized due to high exploration and production expenses. The only alternative which China has, is to depend on the international market for its energy needs.  It is expected that in the future, China’s dependence on other countries will increase for energy. Its dependence on foreign crude oil has already increased from the 50% mark to 54.8% as Zhenya Liu says in his book about the energy sector of China.

China is going to look towards other countries for importing energy resources and this is surely going to bring business for the translation companies, as hoped by a  project analyst working for the Philadelphia translation services.

A New Global Labor Union Is Born

In excess of a thousand delegates, consisting of fifty million men and women in 140 countries, will be meeting to establish a new international labor union federation for the oil production, oil discovery, drilling, energy and assembly trades at a symposium in Copenhagen.

In 2012 a first of its kind trade union will be kicked-off at the Bella Center. Miami Translation Services workers hired to work the event by the labor union, indicate that the new union will represent laborers within the manufacturing sector who work for multinational corporations (a for-profit organization that controls production or delivers services in more than one country. Based on the global textile workers union blog that we translated into the English language by translators with French Translation Atlanta, the new organization will bring together affiliates of the past global union federations. The industrial industries covered in the new union will include workers involved in the fields of petroleum, power distribution, manufacturing of metal products, automotive, mechanical engineering, rubber, construction textiles, leather goods and environmental services.

Cited on the union friendly blogs, the incoming prime minister is cited as saying “We will face worldwide companies with an innovative model of globalization, a new financial and social design that puts individuals first, in line with democracy and social justice.” The formation of the new trade union is a portion of the recent trend of trade unions, on the way to national trade union organizations working collectively to counter the actions of multinational companies. Until now, this has primarily been through state and global collectives. The formation of a global union, for the manufacturing segment, signifies a new path for organized labor.
