Frequently Asked Questions
Does everyone in the meeting need a PL6 receiver?
The only people that need receivers are the people who need interpretation. We also can supply receivers for assisted listening during the event.
I have joined a session and selected my preferred language. Why can’t I hear audio?
If you are having issues with attending an event remotely please ensure that you are not connected to a VPN and that your firewall isn’t blocking traffic for the ProLingo App.
Is there any device I can use for interpretation in place of an interpreter?
No. You will need a human interpreter on site to handle interpretation for your event.
What areas do you supply gear to?
We supply equipment and interpreters anywhere in the United States. We can even do events around the globe.
What is the difference between interpretation and translation?
Interpretation is the spoken word and translation is the written word.
What is the difference between IR and FM audio systems?
Because of range and reliability, RF translation systems are widely used for general assembly or large lecture-style meetings for business, government or non-profit organizations. IR audio systems are more difficult to install but are an excellent choice when a higher level of security is required.
What is the difference between simultaneous and consecutive interpretation?
Simultaneous interpretation increases comprehension, gets the message across quicker, and keeps the flow of the meeting. Consecutive prolongs a meeting substantially and causes people to lose their focus.
Where do you have your offices and equipment at?
We have an office in Orlando, FL, New York, NY, and Las Vegas, NV.
Why pay for interpretation for my event?
Having interpretation at your event can have you see a return on your investment as your participants will be able to fully engage.
Everything was well prepared by the ProLingo staff, so we were able to start our meeting promptly. The technician was great to work with and the interpreters were very professional and were positive and engaged even so we ran into some overtime. We will hire ProLingo for all our interpretation needs, no matter where our events take place.
