Important points for translators and court interpreters

Court interpreters must have sufficient knowledge in the judicial sector, be proficient in the procedure, get acquainted in advance with the participants and, of course, the languages ​​of the court session and the parties. Many translators and interpreters work primarily or often in the courts, which are their main source of income. Therefore, it is important for them that they have the maximum information about their customers. This means that court interpreters have mastered the legal language, have a clear understanding of the roles of those involved in the proceedings, recognize the importance of procedural rules and are very prudent.

A court interpreter must translate everything, including insults, threats, insertions, amendments, etc. The translator is obliged to follow the form of the question (open questions remain open, closed ones remain closed). If the translator wants to say something from himself, he speaks from the third person. Example: "The translator would like to indicate that the word X has two meanings, namely 1 and 2." Consecutive or simultaneous interpretation in court?



The best translation method is agreed with the translator, depending on the situation, either sequentially or simultaneously. Both forms are commonly used. Consecutive interpretation is the most common form of translation: the interlocutor or policeman speaks, the translator takes notes and then translates. Simutaneous interpretation: the interpreter translates what was said during the speech flow. The interrogator is concerned about the quality of the translation. The judge usually cannot judge the quality of the translation. But there are times when the defendants want to disrupt a meeting or interrogation, citing the poor quality of the translation. In this case, by agreement with the judge or prosecutor, the meeting is recorded and later an expert examination of the interpreter's qualifications is carried out. The role of the translator and the way he works does not change if other authorized persons are present during the interrogation. Like all court staff, the translator must be aware that his work is paid for with taxpayer funds, and that the resources available are limited and should not be abused.
