What if I am a Vermont Defendant and Do Not Speak English?

Published by Jessica Burke on

If you are a Vermont Defendant and do not speak English, the Vermont criminal courts offer interpreter services for any individual who needs them.

All people have a right to access the programs and services of the Vermont courts. The Vermont criminal courts offer interpreter services in sign language and a variety of other languages through in person or over the phone interpretation.

The Judiciary provides interpreting and translating services at no cost. An interpreter converts spoken words or words conveyed in sign language from one language to a different language. A translator converts text written in one language to text written in another language.

For more information about accessing interpreter or translation services please contact the Vermont Judiciary.
