Interpreters in the Courtroom

New research has found that untrained interpreters can cause unjust verdicts in court cases involving people from non-English speaking backgrounds.

A study by the University of Western Sydney shows that the speech and mannerisms of interpreters influence the way in which witnesses and defendants are judged.

Associate Professor Sandra Hale told David Crisante, interpreters often lack courtroom experience and need specialist training to ensure the accuracy of their work.
