Jason Blatt Translates Obama’s Inaugural Speech

Associate Jason Blatt was featured on the TVBS News Channel’s live coverage of the inauguration ceremony for US President Barack Obama, which due to the time difference between the US and Asia was broadcast in Taiwan late in the evening of January 20 and continued through the early hours of January 21.

As the ceremony got underway, Jason provided live commentary about the images in Washington DC, as well as historic background about presidential inaugurations. Jason also performed live English-to-Chinese translation of the ceremony itself, including President Obama’s historic inauguration speech.
