Presentation attendees will get an overview of the profession of court interpreting and what is required to become a court interpreter in California. California Court Interpreters work full time or part time as both staff interpreters with benefits and as contractors, after receiving their certification or registered status in Spanish or any of the hundreds of languages spoken throughout California. All 58 courts around the state regularly are in need of court interpreting services. An explanation will be given of which languages fall under which status, along with an overview of the process, how the statewide system is set up and how courts find interpreters. Attendees will explore differences between legal translation and court interpreting and learn ways to prepare for the court interpreting examination process.
Conference registration is not required to attend this event, nor is it necessary to pre-register. However, space is limited and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
