Typically with consecutive interpreters or a bilingual trainer a one hour company meeting takes at least two hours because everything is being repeated.
One additional hour away from the production line for one hundred employees can represent a sizable loss of profit.

Why should you use do simultaneous interpreting for company meetings?
Simultaneous interpretation is used for business meetings in order to permit presentations and discussions to proceed at the same pace as a meeting in just one language. Attendees are given a receiver that allows them to hear what is being said in his or her own language. We use portable wireless FM-based equipment with a range of about 250 feet. The receiver and transmitter are small, and can be carried in a pocket or clipped to a belt for ease of movement, making them appropriate for touring facilities as well as meetings in a single room.
With a combination of highly talented conference interpreters and wireless electronic equipment listeners get the entire message in real time.
