Court interpreter training coming to Milwaukee

The Director of State Courts Office will be holding a training session for court interpreters in Milwaukee in March.

The training will cost $195 and covers lunch, training materials and the two sessions. Applications and registration are due on Friday.

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.
