DESIGNING THE RIGHT INTERPRETING TECHNOLOGIES FOR THE EVENT
Working directly with the event team at MSC Public Relations, we shifted fluidly between a few different interpreting technologies as the room layout changed. The first option we explored was blocking off a part of the room, so the interpreters would not be seen and use monitors for the interpreters to see the speaker. (No radios needed.) The next option was to use the radios, 20 receivers (10 in French, 10 in Japanese).
THE WINNING SOLUTION
The end result? In the end, the event team opted for 2-way English-to-French-to-Japanese transmitters. As Translators USA founder Danny Goossens explains, “We set up the whole system with radio transmission and we made some last-minute adjustments to the setup, as they required. The interpreting for the event was perfection in every detail. Working side-by-side with the event team, we designed the perfect system for the press conference. We have our masterful team of interpreters to thank as well. The team at Renault immediately thanked us after the successful completion of the event.”
