<p style="font-size:10pt">The following Spanish interpreters in the New York area have been certified by the Administrative Office of the U.S. Courts. The certification process comprises a rigorous written and oral examination that measures a candidate&#39;s ability to interpret accurately in simultaneous, consecutive interpretation and sight translation in federal court matters.</p><p style="font-size:10pt">Attorneys seeking interpreters for jail or office visits with clients or family members, or for the translation of correspondence, court documents, tape transcripts or other material, will need to call a contract interpreter directly and agree on rates and schedule for the particular assignment. Cancellation fees apply if an assignment is canceled with less than 24 hours&#39; notice to the interpreter. For jail visits, attorneys should inquire as to the interpreter&#39;s current admission status for the facility in question.</p>
