Commonly Asked Government Services Interpretation Questions

Someone with limited English proficiency is an individual whose primary spoken language is not English, and who has a limited ability to read, write, speak, or understand the English language.

In judicial proceedings instituted by the United States that require the appointment of an interpreter, the cost of the court-appointed interpreter will be paid by the United States. These funds from appropriations available to the judiciary. The exception to this is that the Office of the United States Attorney is responsible for securing the services of such interpreters for government witnesses. For a detailed description of which proceedings qualify for appointed interpreters, please refer to sections (a) and (j) of the Court Interpreters Act. When defense counsel needs the services of an interpreter away from the courthouse, they should make individual arrangements to contact, contract and pay the interpreter.
