Court Interpreter

In a case where the witnesses or the accused has difficulty understanding English, a court interpreter will be provided to translate the proceedings, including the testimonies of witnesses and the legal arguments of lawyers.

Often, the interpreter will sit beside the person who needs assistance, and listen and translate at the same time. Sometimes the translation will be done with a microphone and a headset. Court interpreters have to be approved by the court in order to serve as official interpreters.
