Our Interpreter Yelena McCafferty wins prestigious interpreting award

Prestige Network Blog, News and Press Releases

At Prestige Network, powerful and effective communication is at the heart of our business. We realise that interpreting  is multifaceted, complex and a vital element in the creation of a diverse and successful world.  This is why we are particularly proud when one of our valued interpreters is recognised for their contribution in this increasingly important field.

Yelena McCafferty, a Prestige Network interpreter since 2015, was recently awarded the winner of Best Performance on an Interpreting Assignment nomination. To win this prestigious award, Yelena had to show her responsive and refined approach when acting as a conduit between clients, a point that Yelena eloquently stated by saying: “…the ultimate aim for me is always to make sure the communication between the parties is efficient, with the essence of the messages delivered accurately, taking into account linguistic nuances, cultural differences and humour. As interpreters, we have to bear in mind that the impression made by the people we interpret in many respects depends on their interpreter. Building rapport and trust with people within a very short space of time is an absolute must if we want to establish a working relationship quickly.”

Prestige Network wishes Yelena all the best for the future and hopes to support many more interpreters in their quest for excellence.
