Court Interpreting or Judicial Interpreting, as opposed to the wider term of legal interpreting, refers to interpreting in a judicial setting be it a coroners, tribunal, magistrates, county court or any other. The interpreter has to declare themselves completely impartial at the start of the proceeding to ensure that it is a balanced trial.
Interpreting in court is usually simultaneous or consecutive. This requires intense concentration and the ability to comprehend and articulate often complex information to and from the client in an extremely efficient and accurate manner. For these reasons, it is often highly beneficial for the interpretor to be experience in the specific legal field. Also, for long hearings exceeding two or three days, it is common for simultaneous and consecutive interpretation to be undertaken by teams of linguists in order to spread the load of this intense and demanding work.
