In addition, it communicates with media organizations around the globe to promote better understanding of the UN, calls meetings on global concerns, monitors the execution of decisions made by UN agencies, and has speeches and documents translated into six official languages, etc.

As the UN outsources more and more language services, Grouphorse will step up efforts to undertake UN translation tasks. The Center for Translation and Interpreting at Grouphorse is in urgent need of high-caliber translators and interpreters. This is why Grouphorse launched the UN Document Translation Course that is set to start this August, in a bid to cultivate visionary, knowledgeable and innovative language professionals who are armed with cross-cultural communication skills and can translate UN documents perfectly.
