Police and Court Interpreters

Court interpreting is essential for court proceedings in any number of establishments; court rooms, tribunals or conference halls. When an important participant in the proceedings, such as the defendant or a witness, has little or no mastery of the local language and cannot follow proceedings adequately, Lingo Service can provide an interpreter to help. We can even assist if, as sometimes happens, more than one language pair is required.

Court interpreters are honoured with a considerable amount of responsibility as any mistakes made could undermine the case in question. They are tasked with working in more difficult conditions than other interpreters, often in rooms not equipped with booths and interpreting equipment. These professionals often have to work with speakers who are nervous and unfamiliar with public speaking, which can add to the challenge and which demands an even greater level of concentration. In consideration of this demand on concentration, court interpreters may ask the judge to be allowed a break during proceedings.
