“One of the goals of the Interpreter and Translator Services Unit is to ensure meaningful access to the courts by providing interpreters, who are highly qualified and trained, to all persons who are limited English proficient in all court proceedings and court-related proceedings. This access is extended to [Limited English Proficiency] parties and other LEP individuals whose presence or participation is appropriate to the justice process.”
So states the Judicial Branch’s policy statement regarding limited English proficiency. Lockstep with our chief justice’s goal of making courts more open and providing access to all individuals, the Judicial Branch is attempting to provide English translation and interpretation services to individuals who come into contact with the court system.
