Interpreter Services

The Interpretation and Translation Services Unit provides for language access in all Cleveland Municipal Court services to individuals who are limited English proficient (LEP), non-English speaking, deaf or hard of hearing.  Language services are provided in all court proceedings, functions and ancillary services.  The Interpreters Unit is currently staffed by Supreme Court of Ohio Certified Spanish Interpreters.  When the services of an interpreter are required for languages other than Spanish, the Interpreters Unit arranges for the services of an Interpreter. 

In securing interpreters for the Court, the Interpreters Unit observes the requirements of Rule 88 of the Rules of Superintendence for the Courts of Ohio. The Court may consider the use of telephonic/remote interpretation services when a certified, provisional, or language-skilled interpreter is not reasonably available in person and the matter cannot be postponed or delayed and when the interpretation is not expected to exceed forty-five minutes. 

The Interpretation and Translation Services Unit is located on the 14th floor. If you need an interpreter feel free to call the unit at 216 664 3952.  You can also send a request on our website through the Interpreter Request Form.
