Individuals fluent in English and another language (other than Spanish) are encouraged to apply for the Written English Proficiency Exam to become a Court Interpreter with the New York State Unified Court System. The court system provides interpreting services in over 100 languages to ensure that hearing impaired and non-English speaking persons can clearly understand court proceedings.
Visit our website to download an application. Also listen to the latest Amici podcast featuring Sandra Bryan, former Statewide Coordinator of the Office of Court Interpreting Services, to learn about the requirements to be a court interpreter, the exam and the court interpreting profession.
Note: The exam for Spanish-language court interpreters will be offered in late 2015.
