Frequently Asked Questions

What is the role of a court interpreter?

A court interpreter’s job is to bridge communication gaps in legal settings. Their goal is to ensure that the judge and jury can interact with a witness, or the defendant or plaintiff follow proceedings clearly, no matter which language they speak.

A court interpreter cannot embellish or alter anything which is said. What they say must be the “legal equivalent” of the source message.

This requires in-depth legal knowledge, experience and/ or qualifications. Not to mention high-level language skills – far beyond merely bilingual fluency.

That’s why any interpreters we match you with will always have extensive relevant legal training and/ or experience.

How many court interpreters will I need?

Professional interpreting is mentally exhausting. This is especially true in a court setting.
Your interpreter will likely need to rest after 20 or 30 minutes of work, meaning it can be useful to have two interpreters on certain occasions.
Do get in touch with us if you need more information about getting the right interpreters for your particular case. We’re here to help 24/7.

Are there any occasions where I may get an interpreter in UK court?

There are some situations in the UK justice system where you may be able to get a court interpreter provided for you. These include:

  • If you are deaf or hard of hearing
  • If you want to speak Welsh in court
  • If you can’t understand English
  • If you are in civil court and the case involves possession of property or committal
  • If you’re in family court and the case involves children, domestic violence or forced marriage
  • If you’re in criminal court as the defendant

It’s always best to ask your legal representative how to proceed. You can also make sure you’re getting an experienced and qualified court interpreter by contacting us. Get a free, no-obligation quote and any further information you might need today.
