Legal Interpreter Training

Court and Legal Interpreter Certificate Program

Legal and Court Interpreter Certificate Program
in Boston and Springfield, MA

administered by Language Connections

This 45-hour 7-week Legal and Court Interpreter Certificate Training Program was developed to enable participants to become interpreters working in the legal field.

The course introduces participants to legal and court interpreter roles and skills, interpreter ethics, and legal and court terminology in both English and the target language. Students will gain an understanding of the Massachusetts legal system and take a close look at the Standards and Procedures for Court Interpreters, the document which regulates professional court interpreting in Massachusetts.

Language coaching and role-plays in the target language are offered by experienced interpreters who are native speakers of the target language.
