TRANSLATION EQUIPMENT

We had need to set up translation equipment in the church and after discovering the high cost to hire or buy a complete package, the following  works well and at a fraction of the cost of buying or hiring.

Translation equipment can easily be put together for use in churches or other groups. Instead of the interpreter leaning over someone's shoulder and trying to speak to several people at once, 'plug and play' equipment can easily be set up for up to 4 persons. A marginal increase in cost and and the number can be increased further 4 + 4 or more.

Can be linked to any number of persons from 1 to 1.
An unobtrusive clip microphone is worn by the interpreter allowing hands free to hold paper, work books etc. The microphone is very sensitive and therefore allows for a quiet voice making very little disturbance to others sitting nearby.

Each listener has control over volume for each ear. Therefore if in progress of learning English they wish to hear part English, one side can be turned down whilst still listening to the translator in their own language.

The distance the listeners can sit away from the interpreter is limited to the amount of sound signal extension cable. Below up to 3/4 metres. Excellent voice reproduction is obtained.

We needed to link up to 8 persons, below set up for 4 persons to listen. Below are the suppliers, part numbers and costing - updated November 2016.
