Conference Interpretation Booths
The portable / mobile conference interpreter booth provides working accommodation for 1, 2, 3 or 4 interpreters. The whole mobile interpretation booth can be assembled by means of hook fastenings (depending on the model). The dimensions and weights of the individual modules make it possible to transport and assemble the booths by one person only. The vertical modules are made of a robust outer hardwood frame which surrounds a central panel made of a soundproofing laminate material. The standard 2-person interpretation booths are designed to take 2 low-noise tangential fans ensuring an adequate amount of air circulating in the booths. In addition, 2 reading lamps are provided for each booth.
Conference Interpretation Booths come in many different types with key criteria being:
- Seating Capacity / Type
- Working / Table Surface
- Size of booth (internal / external dimensions)
- Weight, incl transport cases
- Doors & Windows
- Cable passages
- Sound Insulation
- Ventilation & Lighting
- Free-space behind / before the booth
- odor / anti-static / fire retardant or non-flammable / cause no irritation to eyes, skin, respiratory tract
Globibo offers a broad range of Interpretation Equipment for conferences and events. Together with mobile interpretation booths, we also provide Interpreter consoles, transmitters, receivers and all other required hardware and software to support small and mega-scale events. Our event consultants and engineering team suggests the best-suited equipment after analyzing the client’s requirement.

Interpretation Booths Colors
To ensure the best match of our conference interpretation booth into your environment, we carry different styles of booth. Based on the location or logistic from our central warehouses, we can offer Simultaneous Interpretation Booth in different colors and sizes.
Interpretation Booths Black
The black interpretation booth is available in specific locations only and fits discretely into the backdrop and AV setup of your event. The structure consists of smaller modules and is therefore more mobile and easier to transport.
Interpretation Booths White / Grey
The white / light grey interpretation booth is a practical alternative to the black booth. It consists of slightly larger panels and is therefore a little less mobile for transport.
All portable interpretation booths have the same features as stationary ones and include lighting and ventilation. The tables, chairs, lights and ventilation are especially fitted to integrate well into the booth and provide the best experience for the interpreter.
Interpretation Booth by Setup
There are many Interpretations Booths available in the market as the size, setup, color and event requirements. Below are the two types of Interpretation Booths available according to the setup of Interpretation Booths:
Permanent Booth: Booth structures that are fully integrated into the venue. As per some ISO standards the booth includes access to an Internet connection (WLAN) and power outlets for devices.
Mobile / Temporary Booth: Panel-based booth that can be assembled/disassembled quickly at the venue. According to DIN EN ISO 4043, the booth must have good ventilation arrangements and optimal acoustic conditions in the booth.
Interpretation Booths Setup
The engineering of the booths is very user-friendly and customized for fast and space-saving setup and tear down. Our highly-trained crews are accustomed for fast turn-overs and room changes at the venue as well as integrating the interpretation booths perfectly into the overall conference environment.
For room changes during the event itself, please discuss the details with your account manager to save cost but reduce risk at the same time.
Mobile vs Fixed Interpretation Booths
We remain the largest service provider of the Mobile Interpretation Infrastructures in many markets around the world. We aim to provide an interpretation booth that allows comfortable working for the interpreter while creating the silent environment to concentrate on the challenging work they pursue. Our compact interpretation booths fulfil the need of space efficiency for all stakeholders - the event / venue organizer as well as the interpreters.
Mobility means that our booth can be assembled / disassembled quickly in different environment to accommodate for the dynamic nature of the event industry and venues. Mobility is not just about the technical equipment but also means that we take care of the logistics around the setup with the right manpower to get things right.
Fixed installations (permanent booth) often have other requirements in regards to the event setup than mobile / temporary a setup. Features and components make our Interpretation booth easy to work with. Our interpretation booth follows local and international industry and security standards. Furthermore, they include light and ventilation systems that balance noise obstruction with the highest degree of comfort for interpreters.
Interpretation Booths Location
The location of the Interpretation booth during the event needs careful consideration. Certainly the overall space has to be optimized, while keeping practical and safety aspects in mind. In general space before and behind the booth has to be maintained (2m before, 1.5m behind). Also the booth should have direct vision to the speaker. Often workarounds are needed for the direct vision with a camera / video feed to screens displayed at the location of the booth.
To plan the setup of the booth properly as well as to discuss setup / dismantle timelines, please contact us.

Simultaneous Interpretation Booth FAQ
The ideal setup of simultaneous interpretation booths follows certain technical guidelines or principles. Below are some basic questions to answer before renting and finalizing the booths for your event:
1. What is Interpretation?
The process of facilitating communication from one language into its equivalent (or near equivalent) in another language form is called interpreting, for e.g. English to French.
2. Who is an Interpreter?
An interpreter is a person who communicates thoughts or expressions in a source language into comparable thoughts or expressions in the target language in “real time”. A skilled interpreter is able to direct every semantic element (tone and register), intention, and feeling of the message that the source-language speaker is directing to the target-language recipient/recipients linguistically, emotionally, tonally, and culturally.
3. What are the dimensions of the interpretation booths:
Depending on whether it is a 1, 2, 3 person interpretation booth, the dimensions vary between 1.2 meters to 3.5 meters in width. The height is usually around 2.2 meters and depth around 2 meters.
4. How many interpreters fit into 1 interpretation booth?
Booths are designed for 1, 2 or 3 people to be seated comfortably. Please request the right booth for your setup.
5. What is the best location to install the interpretation booth?
The booth must be placed around 30m away from the speaker stage/place or podium but must be able to see the speakers (either directly or via a screen). The interpretation booth needs to have clearance space to the audience and surrounding walls.
6. What visibility needs to be maintained for the Interpretation Booth?
The booth must have windows with non reflective glass so that the Interpreter is able to view the speaker and/or screens.
7. What Ventilation & Lighting is required for an Interpretation Booth?
The interpretation booth must have proper ventilation and a good lighting source on the working table.
8. What other equipment or storage is needed with the interpretation booth?
Usually Interpretation booths are used in combination with Interpreter Consoles, headsets and lamps.
9. What is the need of Interpretation Booth?
Interpreting services are very much sought after in conferences, courts, medical seminars, etc. Here, at Globibo, cater especially for interpreting during live coverages such as press conferences, live or taped interviews with public figures or people from the business world, etc., which generally have to be conducted in the simultaneous mode. This mode of interpreting requires the interpreter/s to be seated in a sound-proof both where they are able to see the speaker/speakers on a monitor and the set. This facility is gaining popularity although it is challenging as the interpreter has to deal with a wide range of technical problems as well as “chaos” in the control room during live coverage. However, our conference interpreter booth facilities at Globibo will be able to alleviate any technical problems or chaos your organization may encounter during such events.
