Court Interpreting and multilingualism
In a multilingual society, translation and interpreting can play a major role. Court interpreting can allow every citizen to exercise his/her linguistic rights. Are court interpreters sufficiently well trained to take up such a challenge? What is the Department of Justice doing about the status of court interpreters? What is the role of translation in a multilingual society? These questions and many others will be addressed.
