NEW YORK, Oct. 15 -- Bowne Global Solutions, a leading provider of interpretation and translation services, announced today that the United States Department of Justice (DOJ) has renewed its selection as the government agency's provider of on-site interpreters for immigration courts nationwide. Under the terms of the new contract, BGS will provide on-site interpreters for any language that is required for immigration hearings at more than 140 DOJ locations nationwide, including those in Alaska, Hawaii, the Caribbean, and Guam.
