Ubiqus has been providing support and services for the Annual Convention of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community in the UK (commonly known as Jalsa Salana) since 2009. Over the course of three days the convention’s slogan “Love for all, hate for none” featured speakers from around the world brought together to discuss a range of religious topics and their relevance to contemporary society.
Taking place in Hampshire, the convention was opened by Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, Khalifatul MasihV (the fifth successor of the Promised Messiah) and attracted some 37,000 participants from 90+ countries. Naturally, translation and interpretation were necessary for the smooth running and cohesion of the event.
The event required translation in English, Bangla, German, Arabic, French, Russian, Indonesian, Turkish, Urdu, Spain, Bosnian, Spanish, Albanian and Japanese to ensure all participants understood the speakers. Ubiqus supplied 17 booths and the ability to project all languages via dozens of media channels across the globe as well as providing localised translation for thousands of the attendees.
Ubiqus’ previous experience in convention’s this large has enabled us to meticulously plan and maintain translation feeds synchronized with the schedule of events. Our technical team were on site for two days prior the start of the event to rig and test equipment to make sure it was integrated seamlessly.
Ubiqus often facilitates and enhances effectiveness of events such as Jalsa Salana, and will continue to do so in future.
