Bosch Simultaneous Interpretation System in the Mission to Moldova of the OSCE

Simultaneous interpretation"Nestled" between Romania and Ukraine, Moldova considers Romanian its national language although after 50 years of Soviet influence, nearly everyone also speaks Russian.

Being the only neutral political international organisation in Moldova, Mission to Moldova of the OSCE regularly hosts meetings of representatives of many different local and international agencies which more often than not, involves the use of Romanian, English and Russian around the table.

Not wanting any delegate to be excluded from the debates due to a poor understanding of the floor language, the Mission had a simultaneous interpretation system installed.

Conference specialists Sound Advice Ltd from the UK won the competitive tender to supply and install a four channel BOSCH digital simultaneous interpretation system. The equipment included 25 discussion units with integral loudspeakers and microphones, above, and 50 infrared Integrus digital four channel receivers, below, and two translators' stations. To provide the most flexibility, the complete system can be packed into special cases and be used in other venues.

The mission can now provide two channels of simultaneous interpretation, as well as the floor language, to delegates and observers alike.

Mission's administrator Jelle Marseille: "This system adds to the Mission's practical possibilities to fulfil its function in Moldova's society; we are most happy with the system as I was with the way Sound Advice Ltd provided us with it".
