They might have meant "interpreters" Jun 28, 2014

I may even guess who.

I'd give them a pass on that one... Jun 29, 2014

The linguistic needs of the specific case in question centered around previously recorded conversations, so the process would have been translation, either directly from audio or with prior transcription.
And they do correctly refer to the court having "but a single interpreter on call".

I am convinced they mean "interpreters' Jun 29, 2014

I think they have only a directory of interpreters--not translators. (Although court interpreters, usually do both--at least to some extent)
