Court Interpreting Services in State and Federal Courts: Reasons and Options for Inter-Court Coordination 1998

The National Center for State Courts (NCSC) initiated a research project to inquire about the feasibility of establishing a framework for inter-system coordination of court interpreter services. NCSC Project staff engaged in six intensive interagency work sessions with personnel of the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts to gain a better understanding of their respective responsibilities and activities in the area of language interpreting and to explore opportunities for productive sharing of information or actual operational resources or projects. This report describes the existing federal & state court interpreter programs; reports on positive contributions to the field that the federal court program has made that have or will benefit state courts; and what state court activities may prove useful for the federal program.
