Thebigword lands deal with Canadian Armed Forces in Ukraine
GLOBAL LANGUAGE services provider thebigword has been awarded a new contract to deliver interpreting services to the Canadian Armed Forces in Ukraine.
From October, thebigword will provide interpreters to support a CAF mission to train Ukrainian troops.
Operation UNIFIER was launched in response to requests from the Ukraine government to assist Ukrainian armed forces with military training and help improve and build military capacity.
The company’s linguists will be on hand 365 days per year and thebigword also has the capacity to deal with any surge in requirements.
The Canadian government has deployed 200 CAF members to the Ukraine and will continue to provide training until March 2019.
UNIFIER’S goal is to help the Ukraine remain sovereign, secure and stable.
Commenting on the contract, Larry Gould, the CEO of thebigword, said: “Our defence division is in now in its sixth year and we provide organisations and governments with the specialist language support they need in often challenging circumstances.
“We know that our work helps to save lives and so I am delighted that we are able to support the Canadian Armed Forces in this important training mission in Ukraine.”
thebigword founded its defence division in 2012. It provides trained and security cleared expert linguists for sensitive and difficult assignments in conflict zones across the world.
It serves clients including NATO and the UK Ministry of Defence.
