What we need

Dear Madam,
Dear Sir,
We are looking for interpreters and translation facilities for our 
Wikimania Conference from 4th to 7th August 2005 in Frankfurt. At the 
moment, we are interested in the following set-up:
For our main conference room:
Simultaneous translation in the following languages:
English>German, French, Spanish and Italian
German> English, French, Spanish and Italian
Those would not happen at the same time, obviously, it would be either 
German, or English first language.
That would be for 3 days (4th-7th August), about 6 to 8 hours per day.
We figure that would be 4 translating booths.
We'd need 200 headsets for participants.
Could you send me a price quote on such a set up?

  • - Group of interpreters (should be cheaper than agencies), seem to be professional (my impression after scanning their website), naming the team members makes them appear trustworthy.

  • - Also a group of interpreters, their website is less professional - might be an indicator for lower costs ;-)
