OSHA Regulations, Global Commerce Make Language Services a Must
An increasing number of businesses are investing in reliable tour guide systems for interpreting as commerce becomes more global in scope and language diversity introduces additional challenges into sales and training environments. TourGuide Solutions, North America’s leading provider of wireless tour guide systems for interpreting, offers purchase and rental options for use in a variety of settings.
According to U.S. Department of Labor data, the demand for people skilled in translation and interpretation has doubled in the past seven years, with significant growth projected well into the next decade. Companies contract with freelance translators for specific events, or hire bilingual or multilingual employees who consistently use tour guide systems for interpreting in the course of regular operations.
“Effective communication comes in many forms, and certainly understanding the language of the speaker is a primary component,” says Alan Ruffell, Product Manager at TourGuide Solutions. “However, our customers who use tour guide systems for interpreting also tell us they appreciate the ability to speak comfortably in loud manufacturing settings, outdoors, or even in quiet environments.”
Options for Tour Guide Systems for Interpreting
Safety training for employees is one of the most common workplace uses businesses have for tour guide systems for interpreting. OSHA requires all employers to offer safety training in a language all employees can understand. This also pertains to temporary employees and contract workers.
TourGuide Solutions offers a wide range of brands appropriate for occasional or regular use. The most popular are the Sennheiser 2020, TGS-900, Williams Sound, and ListenTALK tour guide systems.
“Our equipment is easy to use with quality headset options for interpretation,” Ruffell says. “Our associates can help with the selection process to meet the needs for any setting – small or large, quiet or noisy.”
