Interpreter in Criminal Cases: Allrounders First!
Frid, Arthur
Translation News, v4 n4 p1-6 Dec 1974
The interpreter in criminal cases generally has had a purely linguistic training with no difference from the education received by his colleague interpreters. The position of interpreters in criminal cases is vague and their role depends to a large extent on individual interpretation of officials involved in the criminal procedure. Improvements on the present situation are suggested to guarantee a specialized training of interpreters in criminal cases and earlier and more frequent contact with the accused and more competence for the interpreter in Court.
