Tips for Renting Interpretation Equipment: What to Consider

In our globalized world, effective communication is vital, yet language barriers can impede interactions. When organizing multilingual events, conferences, or meetings, renting interpretation equipment is essential. However, not all rentals offer the same quality. To guarantee a seamless multilingual experience, prioritize factors such as equipment quality, versatility, technical support, ease of use, customization options, and reliability.

Availability of Interpretation Equipment

Check with your company what type of equipment they can provide and which brand their equipment is. Some service providers can or cannot provide some type of equipment because they don’t have those options for you. For instance, if you think that you will need projectors and screens rather than a TV or a double-clicker to run presentations in two different languages on two screens at the same time instead of a normal clicker, it is important that you ask your service provider whether they can provide that to you.


Another incidence would be whether your service provider can provide interpretation services for your 500 participants to be present in the same room. So, it is important that you check with your service provider whether they can cover AV equipment and radiators at the amount that you will require for your event where you would like to receive simultaneous interpretation services.


The Quantity of Equipment

Before approving quotes, carefully estimate the number of participants who will require interpretation services, the number of rooms where you will need interpretation equipment, the sizes of your rooms, and the duration of the event to understand how many interpreters you might need. Additionally, ensure that you rent a sufficient quantity of headsets to accommodate everyone. Having extra headsets on hand is also advisable for unexpected attendees.


Compatibility with Venue Infrastructure

Verify that the interpretation equipment is compatible with the infrastructure of the venue. Ensure that the chosen system operates smoothly with the audiovisual setup of the location. This may involve coordinating with the venue staff or technical team. At HeliCo, our Interpretation Coordinators and skilled technicians can help you analyze compatibility by getting in contact with your POCs at your event venue.

Consider if the rental company provides delivery, setup, and pickup services. At HeliCo, we have professionals handle the logistics to ensure that the equipment is installed correctly and ready for use when your event begins. Confirm the timeline for these services to avoid any last-minute issues.


Reviews and References

Research the reputation of the interpretation equipment rental company. Look for customer reviews, testimonials, or references from previous clients. A reliable rental provider with positive feedback is more likely to offer a satisfactory experience.


Cost Transparency

Understand the complete cost structure of the interpretation equipment rental. Inquire about any additional fees, such as delivery charges or overtime costs. A transparent pricing model will help you budget accurately for your language interpretation needs.


Contract Terms and Conditions

Carefully review the terms and conditions of the rental agreement. Pay attention to cancellation policies, liability clauses, and any other contractual details. Being aware of the terms ensures a smooth rental process.
