California and Federal Court Certified Spanish Interpreter
in Los Angeles
for working with interpreters
My favorite instruction: "Do not
listen to me, listen only to the
interpreter." The brain cannot process
two inputs at once.
· Speak at your normal speed, long pauses confuse
the witness, he or she perceives the
pause as meant for him or her, not the
interpreter, and will start answering
through your mid-sentence pause.
· If need a court certified interpreter, make sure
you say "court" when you place the
order, not just certified, as there are
several levels of certification.
To avoid future issues, get the
certification number on the record.
