Heads Up

You heard it here first - there is going to be real trouble over the new arrangements for interpreter services to the courts. Professional interpreters are an essential resource to ensure justice and to keep court business flowing. Furthermore they are a requirement of the Human Rights Act.

I hear on the grapevine that the new (for-profit) provider of these services is offering vastly inferior rates of pay and expenses, and the existing cadre of approved and registered interpreters are mightily unhappy.

I am not an expert in this field, but I am told that there is some real grief ahead.
