Dear colleagues,

I really appreciate your help on this.

Thanks.

Difference Sep 29, 2010

They are not similar at all, confusion is unlikely. Briefly, in the USA, an interpreter oath would merely be when an interpreter formally swears to to a proper job. On the other hand, though it has other meanings also, "voir dire" (spelling) in general refers to the process of questioning prospective jurors within the jury selection process.

For more detailed explanations, why not check Google? It's all there.

voir dire for interpreters Sep 30, 2010

is when the judge, prosecution or attorneys ask about the interpreter's qualification.
The rest is what Henry pointed out in the previous posting.

a little confused, yugoslavia Oct 1, 2010

I had the curiosity to check your CV. How come that with such an extensive and impressive experience in the field, working for years for top legal firms, you ask us about the difference between the oath and voir dire ?
