Supporting Clean Water for the Nicaraguan People through Professional Recording Services

Nicaragua and Medialocate

Nicaragua, that tiny triangle of land set between Honduras and Costa Rica in Central America, is one of the most water-rich countries in the world.

Yet, due to government injustice, negligence, and inequity, nearly two-thirds of its people have virtually no access to clean drinking water.

To shine a light on this alarming situation, three master’s degree students at the renowned Monterey Institute of International Studies (MIIS), decided to create a documentary film about the clean water issues of the Nicaraguan people.

Cristina Lopez, Manuel Martinez Miralles and Richard Hansen established “H2Nica” in order to visit and film many parts of Nicaragua and explore its people’s struggle for clean water. To accomplish this, the “H2Nica” team needed help. Help in the forms of financing and help with technical support such as professional recording services.

Fortunately, Central California’s Monterey Peninsula, often referred to as the Language Capital of the World, is home to both MIIS and Medialocate. In fact, many of Medialocate’s language translation and localization professionals are MIIS graduates.

So, it was only natural that “H2Nica” would turn to Medialocate, one of a very few language service providers that offers a full range of multimedia capabilities and recording services on-site in its own studios, for its audio voice-over recording needs.
