As one of America's leading interpreting service providers and professional interpreting equipment vendor, we at Translators USA understand how important it is to choose the right equipment. It doesn't only help interpreters provide the highest quality service but it also plays the key role in the listeners' experience. Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all solution and the same equipment that works perfectly for some may not necessarily work for others as well. To make the best choice possible and get the best value for your money, we advise you to consider these factors:
- Understand your options
The technology is advancing at a rapid pace and what used to be state-of-the-art equipment is today "only" standard. You are recommended to take some time for research in order to understand which technologies are available, what are their advantages (and disadvantages) and what the experts have to say about them.
- Consider your needs
The chosen interpreting equipment must above all meet your needs. By your needs, we of course also mean the type and size of the venue, target audience, security requirements and similar factors that should be considered as well if you want to break the language barrier at your event. For example, if the equipment is not powerful enough for your venue size, even the most advanced technology will be of little use. Therefore, focus on the solutions that meet your specific needs.
- Be a smart buyer
Want to get more for less? Who doesn't? In order to get the best value for your money, do some shopping around. Be sure, however, not to expect too much. Quality always has its price and this is especially true for technologically sophisticated products such as professional interpreting equipment. Beware of extremely low prices because they often signal poor quality.
- Don't forget about interpreters' requirements
Remember that quality interpreting equipment plays the key role in quality of interpreting service. If your interpreters can't hear the speaker clearly or are feeling uncomfortable, they will have a hard time providing the highest quality service no matter how professional and experienced they are. So when buying interpreting equipment, make sure that it provides the best working conditions possible.
