These pocket-size devices are ideal for hop-on-hop-off programmes pack full of meetings here and there, visits, and tours.

What you gain in portability, you may lose in quality but, as technology continues to evolve and improve, so does the quality of what you can fit in a carry-on suitcase.

At Multilateral, we have our favourite brands and models, each better suited to different types of rooms and venues.

With technology, as in life, there are no one-size-fits-all solutions and the ones who can help you determine what is the best equipment or platform for each situation are precisely those who use them daily: your interpreters.

IS INTERPRETING TECHNOLOGY NECESSARY?

Well, if you want to get the interpretation in simultaneous with the original speaker, yes (unless there is only one of you and you are OK with your interpreter/s whispering into your ear).

When used properly, portable interpreting devices can help you stick to your schedule and maintain the flow of the conversation.

Not bad for something that fits in a suitcase, huh?
