Legal interpreting requires very specialized education and training. Many states require a special license or certification in order for a person to interpret in court. A Certified Court Interpreter is a person who has passed a comprehensive language exam, usually administered by the State, which attests to his/her understanding and proficiency between English and another language in functions of the U.S. and State judicial system, legal terms and concepts. With this certification, an interpreter is qualified to interpret in attorney-client meetings, preliminary hearings, arraignments, depositions and trials.
