About the Office of Court Interpreter Services

Learn more about the Office of Court Interpreter Services (OCIS) here.

The Office of Court Interpreter Services (OCIS) was established on the premise that all people in the state, regardless of their literacy or English proficiency, have the right to equal access to the courts and to justice, and have the right to access all of the services and programs provided in court facilities. OCIS recruits, screens, trains, and certifies and/or qualifies spoken language interpreters who provide interpretation services for court proceedings and related functions to make sure people have linguistic access at every step of the court process.
