If you have a court hearing and are seeking an interpreter, it is important to begin your search early! Court interpreters are specialists in oral communication by facilitating communication for those non-English (and for our clients in Canada, non-French) -speaking to participate in the proceedings.

We provide both consecutive interpretation and simultaneous interpretation. Consecutive offers two-way communication, like for example, when a witness is being cross-examined. Simultaneous interpretation makes use of electronic equipment to provide ongoing, uninterrupted translation. This method is used for one-way communication, for instance when it is necessary to translate the entire proceedings.

Many times lawyers need a translator for a deposition without much advance notice, and many times we are able to assign a deposition translator.
