Olga Simpson, nee Adande, was the veritable founder of Interlingua Limited in the days when she was freelance conference interpreter and translator. She eventually became staff conference interpreter, first, at Africa Reinsurance and later, ECOWAS, Onikan, Lagos. Her last assignment was with the United Nations International Criminal Tribunal on Rwanda (ICTR), in Arusha, and then Kigali.
Prior to that, she had taught at the University of Lagos and worked as translator at the Second Black and African Festival of Arts and Culture (FESTAC 77). Her contact at FESTAC 77 with Alioune Diop, Secretary General of the Festival International Committee and founder of Presence Africaine, Paris, led to her translation with Irene Dalmeida, her Beninoise compatriot, of Chinua Achebe's Arrow of God into French - La Fleche de Dieu, published by Presence Africaine.

We humbly introduce to you, dear reader, our company, INTERLINGUA LIMITED, a Nigerian Language Services company, and express our interest in being at your disposal for Translation, Interpreting and related services, as well as all aspects of International Multilingual Conference Management.
We meet the criteria indicated in all types of translation, interpretation and conference organisation work. Our team of accredited collaborators: conference interpreters and translators among others work as short term contract personnel / freelance at the highest levels in our sub-region, i.e. the ECOWAS sub-region, nay beyond, in organizations such as ECOWAS, the UN family, the African Union, AfDB and other IGOs and NGOs. We own state-of-the-art mobile simultaneous interpreting equipment with trained technicians for meetings we service and even let out such equipment to other meetings when not needed by us.
We use only trained and accredited professionals to service meetings and ensure effective interlingual communication between delegates and participants in settings where more than one language are used. Such settings include seminars, workshops, conferences, technical, ministerial and summit level meetings. We have worked successfully in the most luxurious and sophisticated conference facilities but also the most modest places, even in the wild, the African jungle!
Our Chief Executive Officer, Prof. Ekundayo Simpson, is an active member of both AIIC and NITI, the accreditation bodies of Conference Interpreters in the world as a whole and in Nigeria respectively.
