Nichols Research offers wireless translation equipment for research conducted in native languages.
Native language research sessions are translated into English or the desired language of the translator and recorded as a digital file (.MP3). Additionally, the converted audio can be uploaded as audio only for transcription services and overlaid onto DVD.
A translator seated behind the one-way mirror listens to the groups in the native tongue through headphones and speaks the translation loud enough for the observers to hear. The translation is recorded as a digital file through a microphone placed in front of the translator. The digital files of the translation along with those recorded in the native tongue are given to the client at the end of the night or uploaded for transcription services or to an FTP site.
Wireless headphones are available for anyone who wishes to listen to the focus groups in the native language.
Experienced translators provided upon request.
