While the concept of simultaneous interpretation equipment rental services might be new to some, it is quite well known among organizers of international conferences as well as the interpreters themselves. Here are few questions gathered so far as asked repeatedly by past prospective clients.
Interpretation equipment are a combination of specialized devices that aid easy transmission of audio messages from a speaker of a particular language to an audience of a different language. Such devices are: IR Receiver, IR Radiator, IR Transmitter, Interpreter headphone with microphone, Interpreter console and headphones.
An interpretation booth is a portable and easy-to-assemble compartment meant to isolate conference interpreters for the duration of a conference. It is usually sound-proof in nature and allows for easy visibility of the conference speaker and delegates.
During a conference or a meeting of participants of multiple languages, a professional simultaneous interpreter listens to the speaker who speaks in a language A, and almost-immediately translates the equivalent language B into a microphone that is in turn broadcasted through the interpretation equipment into the wireless receivers and headphones in the hands of other conference delegates that only understand language B.
Professional interpreters usually charge per hour or per day as the job may require. They often consider a period of 6-7 hours as a day.
