Interpretation is the vital part of big international events. The behind-the-scenes logistics for managing interpreting services are complex and can easily fail. This presentation will explore the use of an AI-supported Vendor Suggestion System (VSS) at recent international events, including the Winter Olympic Games and the FIFA World Cup, to address the needs of 5 distinct types of stakeholders at interpreted events:

●     Clients – What does the solution look like and how do I profit from it?

●     Suppliers – How do I organize and support it? Tips and Tricks

●     Interpreters – How do I successfully start my workday in one part of the world and end it in another?

●     End-users – How do I access professional interpretation with no interpreters on site?

●     Speakers – How can I be sure my speech was interpreted into other languages correctly?
