Interpreting is the conversion of the spoken word from one language (the source language) into another language (the target language)
Interpretations can be simultaneous or consecutive. Consecutive interpretation requires the speaker to pause every few sentences to give the interpreter the chance to interpret.
Simultaneous interpretations does not give the interpreter much time as the speaker does not stop or pause.
Licensed Court Interpreters are one of the most important members of a judicial court. They are involved in simultaneous or consecutive interpretations. Their job is to provide the non-English plaintiff or defendant speaker the same rights that an English speaker would have under the law. Comunication is thus preserved in the court of law
