What interpreting technology is best suited? Interpreting booth vs. tour-guide system

For the selection of the suitable interpreting technology (interpreter’s booth or tourguide system), the following fundamental questions already have to be clarified in the planning of the interpreting:

Number of participants
Number of speakers
Number of languages from which or into which interpreting is to be provided, and number of the corresponding interpreters
Duration of the interpreting
Conditions on site

Is there a sound system on site that is suitable for interpreting or is additional event technology required

Acoustics (loudspeakers, mixer console, amplifiers)

How does interpreting or interpreting technology work in the interpreter's booth?

In the inside of the interpreter's booth there is an interpreter's desk at which the interpreter can select the language to be interpreted, adjust the volume and, if necessary, interrupt his or her interpreting (cough button). The original sound of the speaker is fed into the central control unit. The interpreter hears the speech of the presenter via the headset connected to the interpreter's desk and interprets what is said simultaneously. With the aid of infrared senders the interpreter signal is transmitted to the participants without cables and they receive the interpreting via a receiver unit with headphones. Each receiver has a channel selection button and a volume regulator so that the required language and volume can be selected.
Our interpreter's booths are characterised by the followed features:
optimum noise insulation
correspond to the ISO standard 4043 (standard of the European Commission)
space for two interpreters
have two windows at the front and at the side that provide the interpreters with an unhindered view of procedures
neutral appearance
interior design with sufficient storage space, pleasant lighting and low-noise ventilation
easy transportability
short set-up times

Frequent questions on the correct use of an interpreter's booth

How many interpreter’s booths are required?
As a general rule, one interpreter’s booth is required for each target language in which interpreting is to be done.
How much space does an interpreter's booth take up?
Each interpreter’s booth requires an area of around 2x2m. In addition, another 0.5 m or so should be calculated so that the door of the interpreter’s booth which is located either at the side or at the back can be easily opened.
What is the correct location for the interpreter's booth?
It is essential for the interpreters that they have a good view of the stage and the speaker from the interpreter's booth. There should be a distance of around 1 metre between the interpreter's booth and the last row of seats. In principle, interpreter's booths can also be set up outside of the event room; however, in this case, the event has to be transmitted live to the interpreter's booth by video so that the interpreters can follow events.
How long does it take to set up an interpreter’s booth?
It usually takes around two hours to set up one or two interpreter's booths. An additional hour is estimated for the setting up of each additional interpreter’s booth.
Technicians for the interpreting booth
Our conference technicians are superbly qualified and have many years of experience. They are present throughout the event and monitor the audio quality. You therefore do not have to deal with anything.

Interpreting technology on a small scale – the tour-guide system

How does interpreting with the tour-guide system work?
A tour-guide system is the ideal solution for interpreting that is to take place on a small scale or if there is not sufficient space for an interpreting booth. Popular areas of use are, for instance:
factory tours
company presentations
city tours
guided tours at trade fairs and in museums
mobile interpreting

A tour-guide system consists of two radio microphones for the interpreters as well as 20 receiver units (one receiver unit per listener). When the interpreter speaks into the microphone, the signal is transmitted to the receiver units by radio.

With interpreting with the aid of a tour-guide system, it should be noted that the simultaneous interpreter is not sitting in a booth and that he or she can be heard by those present. That is why the use of tour-guide systems is primarily suitable for interpreting with one foreign language in order to avoid noise disturbance from several interpreters.

With our tour-guide systems, you receive crystal clear sound quality and optimum user-friendliness.
