Interpretation was English-Spanish both ways.
Mobile translation equipment was made available to
facilitate simultaneous interpreting. However,
consecutive interpreting was also required.

Babel members worked professionally and committedly,
receiving warm demonstrations of gratitude from the
forum organizers, panelists and audience.
We are truly pleased to have been able to prove that
despite the extremely difficult state (status?) of the
network, Babels is still standing and working for a
possible world.

Cheers to all the network members from Argentina.
