While Spanish interpreters are most often requested by the courts, qualified interpreters for other languages, such as Arabic, Burmese and Hmong, are also being sought. A number of scholarships are available for those seeking to work in some non-Spanish languages.
Participants who complete orientation and meet certain requirements will be placed on a public roster of interpreters.Follow @erikastrebel
