Nevada Certified Court Interpreter Program
The Nevada Certified Court Interpreter Program was established in 2002. Over the past 17 years, the program has increased the number of credentialed court interpreters and improved access for Nevada's judicial system.
Some highlights from fiscal year 2019 are below:
- Worked with the Rural Courts Coordinator to translate Marsy’s Law (Victim’s Bill of Rights) into Spanish for the Supreme Court website and for use by trial courts.
- In conjunction with the Rural Courts Coordinator, held an Orientation Workshop/Written Examination for Prospective Court Interpreters in Battle Mountain with Judge Denise Fortune. The workshop prepares attendees for the court interpreter profession.
- Delivered two presentations about the Credentialed Court Interpreter Program to the limited jurisdiction judges seminar.
