We meet with our clients from the outset to understand their needs and craft personalized language solutions for them and their audiences taking all aspects of their event into consideration.

It is important to remember that some D.C. venues require clearance and strict security protocols. Our technicians understand the vehicle inspection process of buildings such as the Congress, the White House, the Pentagon, the Library of Congress, the Kennedy Center, the Wilson Center, Smithsonian museums, and several military bases, among others. The equipment inspection must be completed the day before the event and technicians must bring the equipment and van to a designated access point as directed by the Off-site Delivery Center. All vehicles are subject to 100%  inspections.

Table-tops and full-size booths

Professional interpreters work from fully enclosed booths or tabletops which isolates them from ambient noises that may cause interruption of their concentration. Interpreters can only interpret what they hear properly, booths and tabletops promote the quality and accuracy of the interpreting services.

Booth or tabletop provides acoustic separation between the interpreters and the conference participants, allowing for a respectful, professional, and comfortable working environment. Hearing the interpreters speaking in a different language while someone is presenting is very annoying and distracting. Booths and tabletops enable interpreters to maintain the intense effort of concentration required to interpret accurately and reduce the sound of their voices, creating no disturbance to the audience or other interpreters in other booths.
