If you have a business that specializes in international conferences, then you might benefit from translation services. If, by chance, your company is hosting a conference in Atlanta, then you would undoubtedly need to consider the services of Atlanta translators. Here are a few things to consider prior to scheduling your conference.
Consider the Sound
Whenever there is a conference, there is a true need for sound equipment. Having the microphones and speaker system set to the right pitch and volume is essential. If you are planning a conference that specializes in hosting international dignitaries, business people or guests, then you should factor having an interpreter or translator into the budget. Language interpreters can actually translate all of your marketing and conference materials into any language necessary.
The Floor Language vs. the Passive Language
It is essential to keep in mind what the main language of the conference will be. The main language is known as the “floor language.” Many Atlanta translators may encounter a floor language that is English, however, on occasion there is more than one floor language in conjunction with various passive languages. In this instance, there may be a need for multiple interpreter and/or translator services in order to ensure that all of the immediate translation needs of the attendees are met.
Knowing the layout of the room in which the conference will be held in is important. When working with a client, be sure to suggest one of the three more conventional layouts in order to make the translation services more productive and easier to accomplish. (1) Classroom layout – A classroom layout ensures that featured speakers are in the front of the room with attendees in several rows that face them, just like the layout of a school classroom. (2) Boardroom layout – The boardroom layout is a single table, round in shape, possibly in the middle of the room. Chairs are placed around the table with the speakers situated in strategic locations. The final layout to suggest is (3) Theatre layout. The theatre layout has the key speakers at a stage or a table in the front of the room and the attendees in rows in front of them.
Hosting a multilingual conference can be done with ease as long as you are prepared.
