Helping you avoid interpreter issues in court

Chinese Clients Need NAATI-Certified Legal Interpreters
Recently, our team assisted a Royal Commission. A law firm had hired a freelance interpreter, who turned out to be overseas and struggled to understand the specialised legal language used and the Australian circumstances. This led to frequent interruptions, not to mention mounting costs. The Commissioner instructed the law firm to secure the services of a competent certified Chinese court interpreter to ensure the case could proceed without further delays.

As with all cases, we’d rather be involved from the start, but that doesn’t mean we won’t be happy to help mid-way or when you need us.

This is why we advise all legal professionals to be careful when choosing a Mandarin court interpreter and legal translators because the quality of the language team can have a big effect on the outcome of the case.

We ensure that our Chinese court interpreters comply with the court’s practices and policies. We require them to attest to their compliance with the AUSIT Code of Conduct for interpreters. This ensures that they are aware of their impartiality and their role as servants of the court. We recommend that you book Chinese court interpreting services from a dedicated language service provider instead of hiring freelancers to avoid any issues in court.

Chinese court interpreting services play an important part in court cases where clients don’t understand English well or even if they appear to have good English, the stress of court, cross-examination and legal jargon means it is important to consider court interpreting.

Your Chinese court interpreter will be able to assist you with a variety of legal proceedings such as family law, migration, and civil and commercial cases at all levels of court, including supreme, magistrates, county, and family courts as well as tribunals. 

Professional Chinese court interpreters are highly trained and in great demand because of their extensive experience.
