A Portuguese court interpreter is anyone who interprets in a court proceeding (e.g., arraignment, motion, pretrial conference, preliminary hearing, deposition, trial) for a witness or defendant who speaks or understands little or no English. The professional skills, knowledge, and abilities required of a court interpreter are highly complex. Communication in courtroom proceedings may be more difficult than that in other settings or in everyday life.
Interpreters assist litigants during attorney-client consultations and arraignments, hearings, trials, and other court events. A court interpreter needs to be familiar with legal terms and concepts in both English and your first language, and most people are not. That is why it is very important you have an interpreter with experience.
