Interpreters allow people speaking different languages, including the hearing impaired, to communicate with one another. In legal proceedings, the court interpreter is an invaluable medium between non-English speakers and English-speaking parties. They play a key role in translating the foreign language to English as precisely as possible in order to place the non-English speaker in the same position as an English speaker.
In doing so, the main responsibility of the court interpreter is to convert one language to another without editing, paraphrasing, deleting, or adding while maintaining the style, tone, and intent of the non-English speaker.
The testimony of a witness can influence the outcome of the case since it may be the most valuable piece of evidence. Hence, accurate testimony is critical for any party involved in a civil or criminal proceeding. This means that if the court interpreter, for some reason, translates testimony incorrectly, significant problems could occur, causing an unfair result, based on inaccurate and misleading information.
