Are there standards for simultaneous interpretation equipment?

Yes and they are rather detailed.

Standards are important for language translation and interpretation services.

ISO 2603 “Simultaneous interpreting – Permanent booths – Requirements” covers the built-in installations, and ISO 4043 “Simultaneous interpreting – Mobile booths – Requirements” covers portable equipment.



There are other guidelines and standards by other bodies, such as  ISO/FDIS 20109 “Simultaneous interpreting — Equipment – Requirements” or ASTM F2089: Standard Guide for Language Interpreting Services.
