Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS -

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.
