Televic award-winning Lingua Interpreter Desk

Televic award-winning Lingua Interpreter Desk

Televic’s award-winning Lingua Interpreter Desk is a demonstration of user-centered design and embodies anew approach to enhance the working comfort of the interpreter. It has been designed by and for professional interpreters.

The unique focus on superior user feedback, improved ergonomics, and intuitive interfacing makes it the most user- friendly professional interpreter desk on the market today.

The Lingua Interpreter Desk takes a minimum amount of space on the table by optimizing the limited room that is available in a typically small and packed interpreter booth. It also fuses hardware and software to create a seamless experience.

The design is clear and minimalistic, innovative yet familiar, and complies with the strict ISO 20109:2016 standard for interpreter equipment. It helps freelance, residential, and visually impaired interpreters to do their job better, more focused and yet more relaxed. Furthermore, the Lingua Interpreter Desk is backed by the Plixus® network and redundant cabling to ensure maximum reliability. Optionally, either a headset or a shielded microphone immune to mobile phone interference can be used (both sold separately).

Benefits Ergonomic Design

The Interpreter Desk has been designed from start to finish with ergonomics in mind. The angle of the desk’s faceplate has been optimized for optimal viewing and a relaxing hand position while using the controls. It ensures that interpreters can perform their job comfortably,
even during long meetings. What’s more, the layout of the buttons has been carefully conceived to minimize movements and avoid the typical strain associated with extended interpreting sessions.

Superlative Accessibility

Televic has devoted special attention to accessibility to ensure that the Interpreter Desk can be used by all interpreters. Thanks to the input of visually impaired interpreters on how design could make their work easier, the Televic Interpreter Desk has braille indications near the buttons, tactile references to guide the interpreter to the right functions, and audible feedback when using the desk.
