Member News | 2M Language Services | 2M speaks personnel and network security at the 2019 Defence Export Talk

On Monday the 3rd of June, 2M and the Export Council Of Australia led a Defence Industry event in Brisbane where they shared precious information to Queensland Defence companies on how to use translation and interpreting services while ensuring personnel security compliance, information confidentiality and network security which are crucial to their activities.

The session was also assisted by speakers from the DISP (Defence Industry Security Program) and the newly created Defence Export department from the Commonwealth government. Our CEO also led a panel discussion including past QLD Export Awards winners L3 Micreo and TAE Aerospace outlining their global journeys, talking about international procurement challenges and the difficulties they faced to become a successful exporter in their industry.

We strongly encourage any Defence exporter in Queensland to apply for the award and look forward to recognising their success at the Export Gala night on the 10th of October 2019.

The post 2M sponsor of the 2019 Richard Joel Award for the Defence Industry appeared first on 2M Language Services.

The themes will include the different tribunals’ specific needs when working with interpreters, the challenges experienced by interpreters when working in tribunals and the role of interpretation users – tribunal members and arbitrators –  and other stakeholders. Suggestions on how parties can help to facilitate effective communication will be discussed in light of the Recommended National Standards for Working with Interpreters in Courts and Tribunals.
