go back

An interpreter is an individual who translates orally (or in writing) from one language into another. Individual must be certified to act as interpreters in administrative and/or court hearings, excluding small claims court proceedings. Interpreter examinations are conducted periodically through the entities listed below. There is no office in state service that retains a list of interpreters. The interpreters employed throughout state service are individuals who have been certified by their agency because there was a need for a language translator in that agency.
