I think indigenous languages should be protected by all means, but would that indigenous language have all the vocabulary used in complex or even often convoluted legal documents written in English, all the jail jargon and legal jargon? The interpreters can certainly interpret what the lawyers say in language modified for a lay person's use--meaning the client.
