Dear colleagues,
On my recent assignment I met some great colleagues in Warsaw, Tarnow and Cracow. Today I have a request for one week in September or November 2017. Please advice if you are available or some one you can recommend and can send me an offer so I can propose a complete solution to my client. If you are based in Warsaw Poland or if by chance you know someone based in Warsaw and could provide this service?
Trainer is usually either from the US or Israel. Since many years now I have done my self numerous of this trainings either for phone companies like SFT / Bouygues or forensic for French and Swiss Police in Geneva. A lump sum is the preferred solution for the client. Follows description of the client:
<In case we decide to work with two interpreters, can you also include a proposal for renting the mobile audio equipment? 
Days are monday to friday. 
Some times Monday starts between ten and noon (teams have to set up the computers and material). Almost all sessions end on Friday noon lunch time or latest 15:00. 
Days are planned to be 9-17h. Is that local office working time?
Dates : 
5 days sometime in the first 2 weeks of September (we may have another one but it is not confirmed yet)
City: Warsaw as of today
the 2nd training later will be in another city
(Cities can be reversed, if it will all work out as planned for Poland)
similar setting to the training of the local team (Elef and his team have already interpreted in Paris and Geneva on a single interpreter base). 
Trainer has an alarm clock set on 40 minutes and participants have numerous practical exercises to do with their phones, tablets, devices; a pace when including a smokers brake etc that makes the conditions close to a booth; but not always. This is why for Brasil they ask for an offer for two interpreters.


Linguali-IS rend inutiles les récepteurs (casques IR ou HF) : les participants écoutent les canaux de langues des interprètes via leurs smartphones. Les interprètes quand à eux reçoivent l'audio des intervenants dans leur casque avec une qualité ISO.
Qualité audio supérieure à celle des équipements habituels, latence imperceptible, quasi temps-réel, voie de retour incluse, facilité d'utilisation sans équivalent, tarification au nombre effectif d'utilisateurs... ces qualités ont fait dire aux meilleurs observateurs et praticiens du marché* que Linguali-IS est actuellement la principale innovation dans l'interprétation simultanée.

Over the last several years, the state of the interpreting market has deteriorated. There is an ongoing and constant pressure to reduce costs, and this has meant that interpreters are increasingly working in subpar conditions. They are using cabins and traditional equipment less and less, often having to resort to using bidule, or tour guide systems, which make working conditions more difficult.
James Anderson, the co-founder and President of Linguali, has been a conference interpreter for the past twenty years, and since 2008 he has been trying to find a solution to improve these conditions.
