Court interpreters wanted

The Office of Director of State Courts is taking applications for interpreters.

The next training session will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 17 and 18 at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s student union. The cost for the weekend is $175.

The weekend will cover the fundamentals of court interpreting, including ethical conduct, legal terminology, court procedure and basic interpreting skills, according to a news release.

Spanish court interpreters are the most in-demand, though some are now looking for those who are fluent in Arabic, Burmese, Farsi, French, Khmer, Russian, Somali and Tibetan, as well as others.

Those who attend the session and meet requirements will be put on a list that goes to courts, law enforcement agencies, lawyers and other agencies.

The deadline to apply is May 2. For more information, contact Carmel Capati at carmel.capati@wicourts.gov or call 608-266-8635.
