Holly Mikkelson and Alee A. Robbins
It is important to educate the legal profession (both judges and lawyers) about the role of the court interpreter because they may have some misconceptions about what interpreters can and cannot do. In our adversarial system of justice, interpreters must walk a very fine line to remain impartial, even if they have been hired to interpret for the defense in a given case. Defense attorneys must understand that the interpreter cannot explain things to their client, prosecutors must be aware that the interpreter cannot render an interpretation that is favorable to the prosecution, but must simply interpret exactly what a witness says regardless of the outcome. If judges and attorneys learn to regard interpreters as skilled professionals and officers of the court, they will be able to work as a team to ensure that justice is done. Holly Mikkelson.
