interpreter Courts also have interpreters for people who don’t speak or understand English. The interpreter’s job is to translate what is said in court.

Court Reporters

The court reporter is the person who writes down everything that everybody says in court. Wow! Can you imagine writing down all the words people say?

Court reporters type very fast, and everyone in court has to speak slowly and clearly so the court reporter can hear what they say.
