Christina Arana, a frequent speaker at various bar association meetings on the use of interpreters in legal proceedings, says, “An interpreter should actually be like glass. All that is said should pass through exactly as spoken, never subject to paraphrasing, editorializing, or poetic license. An interpreter knows only what someone says, not what they mean, which is why speech must be repeated precisely as stated. It is the unspoken code of professional interpreting that we practice.”Contact Us
