Court team finds interpreters to get the job done

“The translation service, typically provided to anyone appearing in court who requests it, covers stalwarts like Spanish and Vietnamese. But it also includes many rare and exotic languages — from all corners of the globe — as officials work to ensure fair and efficient trials.

Dallas County spends about $1.1 million each year on interpreter services in the court system.”

Languages do matter!
