Age Exchange

Age Exchange is a national centre for reminiscence arts and dementia intervention. The charity creates intergenerational projects and is also a vibrant community hub in south-east London. It was recently shortlisted for the Guardian Charity of The Year Awards.

Universal Language Solutions was closely involved with one of the charity’s recent projects, ’Meeting in No Man’s Land’, where German and British elders came together to exchange and compare family histories from the First World War. Many hours of individual and group interviews with German and British elders were recorded. Universal Language Solutions assigned suitable freelance linguists and translators to transcribe, translate and provide subtitles for the audio-visual material. In-house staff carried out a quality check before the material was sent back to Age Exchange.

The project resulted in a documentary film that was screened at The National Film Theatre in London to mark the 100th anniversary of The Battle of The Somme in July 2016. After that, the documentary toured galleries, museums, libraries and schools, and has been used to create learning material for British school children.
