Tens of thousands of people from around the world are involved in the organization and staging the largest international event: the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. Organizers, athletes, journalists and spectators, speaking different languages, must receive all necessary information and communicate with each other. This is a complex task, which during the Games will be resolved by the staff of the Language Services Department, volunteer translators and contracted simultaneous interpreters.
This section contains materials about the work of the department, English-Russian and Russian-French glossaries, links to training webinars and other useful information.
We hope that the site's contents will be useful to all colleagues involved in the preparation and staging of the Games or those interested in translation issues at sporting events.
