Certified Mandarin Court Interpreters
Court interpreters are needed in civil and criminal legal proceedings. Their ability to interpret complex legal procedures and vocabulary, without changing the speaker’s legal register, is crucial.
Typically, they interpret for a witness or defendant who speaks or understands little or no English, while also representing legal professionals with advanced degrees. They may appear at an arraignment, motion, pretrial conference, preliminary hearing, deposition or trial. A court interpreter may also be asked to translate written legal documents on the spot.
In some cases, a state may require that only court-certified and/or trained interpreters participate in legal proceedings.
