Empowerlingua’s court interpreters have years of experience working with legal clients and they specialise in arbitration and dispute resolution. Having assisted many of the UK’s legal 100 and 500 firms with such matters, we are familiar with the associated requirements of court hearings and can provide an experienced interpreter to attend any hearing as a matter of routine.

The state is required to provide language interpreters for free in many court hearings. We provide numerous local authorities around the UK with court interpreters to translate for those who do not speak English as a first language. It is often the case that the defendant is anxious and uncertain and this affects their speech – a professional court interpreter will be able to account for this and translate the intended meaning, even if it is expressed in a confused way.

Court Interpreters

Simultaneous Interpreters

We strongly recommend simultaneous interpreters for court proceedings as they reduce the amount of time spent interpreting by as much as two thirds, thus decreasing the time spent cross examining or listening to evidence provided by witnesses.


In serious legal matters, we understand that you want to work with an interpreter you can depend on. That’s why we are proud to provide only the highest quality interpreters to our clients. All of the professionals we provide are experienced with legal terminology in their respective languages.
