Given the multinational nature of business, it is more and more important to be able to communicate efficiently with colleagues in different languages.
Whilst there are different styles of interpretation allowing for this, Simultaneous Interpretation, which combines state of the art equipment with professional interpreters, is by far the most efficient method.
The equipment required consists of soundproof interpreter booths, housing the interpreters and the interpretation desks or consoles, an infrared transmission system and wireless receivers with headphones that allow the delegates to choose whichever language option they are most comfortable with.
Interpreter booths, whether permanent or portable, need to provide the best possible environment for the interpreters to work in. The addition of monitors within the booths for the relay of video and data content further assists them in their difficult work.
