Service will be offered in six languages during Salvador’s Carnival
The more than seventy thousand foreigners that will spend Carnival in Salvador will have no communication problems. For the seventh consecutive year, they can count on the help of the professionals of the Carnival’s Guides and Monitors Project, ready to provide information in up to six languages.
More than 300 professionals will be distributed in 21 points, like the main hotels and Salvador’s main gates: port, airport, bus terminal and ferry-boat terminal. They’ll be also at the Carnival’s circuits and strategic points of Bahia’s capital.
The guides and monitors will provide information in the following languages: Portuguese, English, Spanish, German, French and Italian.
According to the secretary of Tourism, Pedro Galvão, in the last seven years approximately five hundred thousand people used the service. “In 2013 alone, 144 thousand people used the service”, said Galvão.
Besides the foreign languages, information will also be provided in the Brazilian Sign Language. The service works 24 hours, starting at midnight of February 27th (Thursday) and ending at noon of March 5th (Ash Wednesday).
