Court

A court is a tribunal, often a governmental institution, with the authority to adjudicate legal disputes between parties and carry out the administration of justice in civil, criminal, and administrative matters in accordance with the rule of law. In both common law and civil law legal systems, courts are the central means for dispute resolution, and it is generally understood that all persons have an ability to bring their claims before a court.

Modern courts often need court interpreters to simultaneously or consecutively interpret between parties and/or the court when a common language is not enough to communicate fully and accurately and thereby serve the justice.

Some courts also use remote interpreting when it is not practical to bring an on-site interpreter or the languages of the parties are not within the capacity of any local professional.
