Can I get a court interpreter for free?
Free Quality Interpreter Services
Language Access in the courts across the USA varies from state to state. For most criminal matters, including federal and some family cases, you will be able to request a certified court interpreter free-of-charge at the courthouse. However, in civil matters, including family cases or in courts, you may not be provided with a free certified interpreter. Instead, you may be required to hire your own certified interpreter. These services may still be provided for free or at low cost through a local non-profit organization such as Community Language Access, Inc (CLA) in Orlando, Fl. CLA serves the USA nationwide including Florida, California, Arizona, Maryland, Washington, New Jersey, New York, Texas, Virginia, Illinois, and North Carolina. It is important to acquire professional services that offer certified interpreters for your needs.
Asking a relative or friend to interpret for you may sound easy and convenient, however, it is not always allowed in court because a conflict of interest may arise; not to mention that the accuracy of the interpretation rendered may be subpar and hinder your legal case process.
How can I translate a document for free?
Free Document Translation
Most translation companies will require you to pay a fee to translate a document and may have free (pro-bono) translation services available. Some non-profit organizations, such as Community Language Access, Inc (CLA), offer free translation and certification to those in need. CLA serves the USA nationwide and throughout Florida including West Palm Beach, Ft. Pierce, Orlando, Daytona Beach, Melbourne, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota. Translating a document for free may also be done through free online translating tools, but it is highly discouraged due to the unreliability and the inaccuracy of such online tools. For important matters, professional human translation is recommended.
