Who pays for interpreters?
The law provides for interpreters to be paid at government expense for limited English proficient (LEP) persons in all court and court-annexed proceedings without distinguishing among criminal, civil, or administrative matters. The law also extends to provide meaningful access for LEP persons with court-supervised personnel and other court-ordered functions that are conducted outside the courtroom.
