Planning an international event? We can help you with simultaneous translation and equipment!

Simultaneous translation is often chosen in situations where there are speakers of different languages who need to communicate with each other in real-time. This can include events like international conferences, business meetings, diplomatic negotiations, or media broadcasts.

Simultaneous translation allows for seamless communication between speakers of different languages, as it allows each participant to hear the translation of what is being said in real-time, without having to wait for the translator to finish before responding.

There are several benefits to using simultaneous translation, including:

  1. Saves time: With simultaneous translation, conversations can proceed at a much faster pace, as there is no need to wait for translations to be completed before continuing the conversation.
  2. Improves communication: Simultaneous translation ensures that participants can communicate effectively, regardless of their native language, thereby reducing the likelihood of misunderstandings or misinterpretations.
  3. Increases accessibility: Simultaneous translation makes it possible for people who would otherwise be excluded from conversations due to language barriers to participate fully, which can be particularly important in diplomatic or business negotiations.

At Translation Agency "Paroles" we work with professional interpreters who are qualified to translate in various fields - from technical to medical. However, this kind of translation is impossible without equipment.

Simultaneous translation equipment is necessary for facilitating real-time translation in multilingual events. The basic components of simultaneous translation equipment typically include:

  1. Interpreter booths: These are soundproof booths where interpreters sit and translate speeches or conversations into different languages. The booths are equipped with microphones, headsets, and an audio console that allows interpreters to select the language they will interpret into and to adjust the volume levels of the incoming and outgoing audio.
  2. Headsets: Participants who require translation wear headsets that receive the interpreted audio signal from the interpreter booth. Headsets are usually lightweight and comfortable to wear, with adjustable volume levels.
  3. Audio console: This device allows interpreters to select the language they will interpret into and to adjust the volume levels of the incoming and outgoing audio. The console is usually located inside the interpreter booth.
  4. Wireless transmitters and receivers: These devices transmit and receive the audio signal wirelessly between the interpreter booths and the headsets worn by participants.
  5. Microphones: Speakers wear microphones to ensure that their voices are transmitted clearly to the interpreter booth, where they can be translated into different languages.

In addition to these basic components, simultaneous translation equipment may also include other features, such as video conferencing capabilities, interactive display systems, and real-time transcription services.
