A legal interpreter is a bilingual individual who translates in a legal setting, including local and state courts. Many court interpreters work on a freelance basis. Legal interpreters are also hired by attorneys for depositions, civil cases and other pre-trial assignments. Upon further study of translation, which deals with the written rather than the spoken word, students could prepare for court and legal translation and transcription positions or freelance work. Waubonsee's program is for individuals who are bilingual in English and Spanish.
