Re: california certified court interpreters Jan 23, 2008

"Legislation effective on January 1, 1998, gave the Judicial Council authority to set statewide pay rates for interpreter services in criminal proceedings. Previously, each trial court had authority to establish per diem rates; as a result, interpreting rates var-ied from $114 to $210 per full day. Effective September 1, 2007, the council in-creased the daily compensation for certified court and registered independent con-tract interpreters to $282.23 per full day and $156.56 per half day — the fourth in-crease since January 1999. The per diem for noncertified and nonregistered contract interpreters is less."

Different levels and methods of certification as court interpreter in CA Jan 23, 2008


While the Judicial Council's criteria and the expensive process for State-level certfication provide those who take and pass the exam with the highest such level (and usually accredited across all court jurisdictions in the State of CA), that is **not** the only standard in effect because of demand by the courts

There also are different / lower levels and methods of certification as a "court interpreter" in various CA jurisdictions (i.e., counties and municipalities). The compensation schedules also vary accordingly among local jurisdictions.

Hope this helps.
