Translators USA interpreters are happy to provide advice on anything related to interpreting equipment. With years of experience in providing the highest quality interpreting services, they have gained a lot of experience with interpreting equipment as well. However, it is not interpreters' responsibility to take care of the equipment. Their job is to provide interpreting services. Renting/buying of the equipment and its installation is the responsibility of the event organizer.
Interpreters Must Focus on Interpreting Alone
Interpreting requires the highest level of concentration in order to render an accurate translation. Therefore, interpreters typically work in pairs and alternate every 20 to 30 minutes. And to the surprise of many, even the most experienced and knowledgeable interpreters need to prepare themselves for the event in order to provide the highest quality service. Forcing interpreters to deal with the equipment would seriously interfere with their ability to focus on what they are hired for – effectively break the language barrier and provide the highest quality interpreting from the beginning to the end of the event.
Buying Vs Renting Interpreting Equipment
If you don't have interpreting equipment or if the existing one doesn't meet yours or/and interpreters' requirements, you have two options. You can either buy or rent the necessary equipment. Whether to buy or to rent is of course completely up to you but before making the final decision, you should consider how often you expect to need it in the future.
If you intend to hold bilingual or multilingual events on a regular basis, it is a good idea to buy the equipment rather than renting it. Not only will the investment pay off in the long term but it is also very convenient to have everything ready when the need for interpretation occurs. But if you don't think that you'll be holding conferences, businesses meetings or other multilingual events more that two to three times a year, it is probably a better idea to rent it instead because the highest quality professional interpreting equipment isn't inexpensive. Be sure, however, to look for a reliable rental provider who can meet your specific needs in terms of both the equipment and delivery/installation.
