Certifications and Qualifications for Legal Interpreting

When clients contact us to provide "Court Certified Interpreters" for legal proceedings, there is often confusion as to what this actually means. The term "Court Certified" refers to a specific designation that interpreters receive by completing course work and by passing challenging verbal and written tests. Each state that participates has their own certification program, which are for specific languages.

The Federal Court System

It is interesting to note that these designations are not uniform throughout the United States. While Federal Court designations are uniform, states are not. Federal Certifications are required for federal court cases and are only in the following languages: Spanish, Navajo and Haitian-Creole. The remainders of the languages utilized in the federal courts are designated as "Professionally Qualified" which requires experience, but no official testing.

The State Court System

The State Court System works differently than the Federal Courts. The great majority of the states have an official "Court Certified" designation. Currently 42 states have this designation. For more information, click here.

Many states also have the "Professionally Qualified" designation which is similar to the federal courts. The few states that do have the official "Court Certified" designations have certified languages that vary from state to state.
