Swearing In An Interpreter

In the course of interning, I’ve sat in on quite a few legal proceedings that involved an interpreter.

Like witnesses, interpreters must be sworn in.

Hear are some standard oaths that can be used to swear in interpreters:

“Do you solemnly swear or affirm that the interpretation you will give in this deposition will be from English to Spanish and from Spanish to English to the best of your ability?”

“Do you solemnly swear or affirm that you will interpret accurately, completely and impartially, follow all official guidelines established by this court for legal interpreting or translating, and discharge all of the duties and obligations of legal interpretation and translation?”
