Translators USA highly trained and experienced interpreters have the knowledge and skills to handle just about any event, setting and venue. But they need the right interpreting equipment. Since the latter is the responsibility of the event organizer, we put a lot of effort into helping our clients understand what are the options, which solutions are appropriate and which aren't, and why. In this blog, we will take a closer look of portable interpreting equipment, when it can be used, why it isn't appropriate for all settings and how to use it.
Applications and Advantages Over Stationary Solutions
Portable interpreting equipment can be used in a variety of events and settings including business meetings. But since it is portable, it is also ideal for factory tours and other events requiring mobility of the participants. Its main advantage over stationary solutions is of course the fact that it is especially designed to be portable. Stationary equipment can be moved around as well but it is far less convenient to move from one place to another. Portable interpreting equipment is thus also a great choice for classrooms, seminars, presentations, etc. Other advantages besides portability include:
- Ease of use. Portable interpreting equipment is very easy to use. All you need to do is to turn on the transmitter, choose the channel on which you want to transmit interpretation and set the receivers on the same channel.
- Fast setup. Another great thing about portable equipment is fast setup as it is ready to use in mere seconds. Stationary solutions, on the other hand, can take up to one hour to install (by an experienced technician).
When Portable Equipment Isn't Appropriate?
Portable equipment isn't appropriate for all events and settings. If you are planning to hold an event at a larger venue or/and if it will be participated by large audience, it is recommended to use stationary interpreting equipment and have it set up by an experienced technician. Also, be sure to plan some extra time to allow the technician to test the equipment and make sure that everything is functioning perfectly.
How to Use Portable Equipment?
There are some differences between different manufactures and models but basically, you only need to turn on the transmitter and receivers, set them on the same channel and you are ready to go.
