We've had this question countless times about court interpreting in the States. Turnabout is fair play.

Does an interpreter have to have some type of certification to do court interpreting in Russia?

Hi Kurt Mar 4, 2007

I suggest asking in the Russian forum. But as far as I know, the answer is 'no'.

suggestion and educated guess :-) Mar 5, 2007

If you are still in Russia I'd suggest simply to call to any court and ask registrar there (under any pretext, say, you need an interpreter). Then you will know for sure.

Otherwise, i'd call (or email) "local" Russian embassy or consulate - they may know.

My educated guess - there is no certification required, but relevant professional credentials (i mean a language degree in relevant languages from a legit educational institution).
