A Guide for Iowa Court Interpreters

Overview

Language interpreters play a critical role in providing access to justice for people with hearing impairments and people who do not speak English. This guide explains Chapter 47 of the Iowa Court Rules, which regulate appointment and qualifications of court interpreters. The guide also explains the steps interpreters must follow to be compensated for their services. Iowa's eight judicial districts vary somewhat in the way they handle interpreter appointments. If you want more information on being a court interpreter, contact a district court administrator's office near you. (See page 11 of this guide for a list of the eight district court administration offices.)
