My UK based fellow blogger Azarmehr was in Rome accompanying our very own Amir Fakhravar to the 'Struggle for Democracy in the Islamic World' conference, acting as a translator:
"I have just come back from the 'Struggle for Democracy in the Islamic World' conference held in Rome, where I had the pleasure of interpreting for my friend, Amir Abbas (Siavash) Fakhravar."
I am pretty sure that Azarmehr has done a wonderful job of translating and I am glad he did that because Fakhravar's translator in the States sucks majorly and can't do the job well. Fakhravar needs a better interpreter and he got one in Rome... Btw, check his reply to that clueless anti-American journalist. You'll like it! ;-)
