Court interpreters provide accurate interpretation and translation for witnesses and parties in courtrooms and other legal proceedings where legal terminology is used, and knowledge of legal procedures and processes is essential. The Legal Interpretation and Translation Certificate Program teaches students to interpret consecutively, as well as simultaneously, and to "sight translate" legal, business and medical documents. The instruction covers a variety of court and administrative procedures and practices.
While this Legal Interpretation and Translation Certificate Program can train students to take county, state, and even federal examinations that certify the competency of interpreters and translators for employment in non-legal contexts, the program focus is on the special knowledge and training needed to work as a court interpreter and meet the standards of the Judicial Council of California. The final course consists of intensive preparation and mock exams simulating the written and oral examinations given at the state and federal levels for certification as an interpreter for the courts.
