The Criminal District Court for the Parish of Orleans seeks applications from certified* and/or registered interpreters in the language of Spanish and Vietnamese to interpret in court proceedings. Applicants must be registered with the Louisiana Supreme Court. Interested parties should email or mail their resume and certification/registration information to Jacob Dufour, Human Resources Specialist, at . Deadlines for submission is Wednesday, December 19, 2018 at 3 pm. *Certification is the highest level court interpreter in the Louisiana Judicial system. To become a "Certified" court interpreter in Louisiana, a candidate must already be a "Registered" court interpreter and additionally must pass the National Center of State Court (NCSC) Oral Certification Examination (oral exam) as administered in Louisiana in accordance with NCSC testing protocols. A "Certified" court interpreter has tested skills in simultaneous and consecutive court interpreting as well as in sight translation and has scored at least a 70% percent on each testing section.
In Louisiana, a court interpreter is listed as "Registered" in the language for which he tested if the interpreter: completes a two day training course, passes a standard written English examination as provided by the National Center for State Courts, passes a written translation examination, agrees to be bound by Part G, Section 14 of the General Administrative Rules for all Louisiana Courts: The Code of Professional Responsibility for Language Interpreters, and passes a criminal background check. (Note that American Sign Language interpreters are not required to take the written translation examination, but instead shall provide proof of a valid Specialist Certificate Legal (SC:L) or a national generalist certificate from the Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID).) The purpose of this roster is to help courts and other related entities utilize qualified interpreters on a freelance basis. The fact that an interpreter is listed on this roster does not indicate an employment relationship with the Louisiana Supreme Court or any of the courts in the Louisiana judicial system. Court interpreters working on an individual contract basis or for agencies are not employees of the courts. Category: Arts & Entertainment , Keywords: Court Interpreter
