Over the years, there have been many examples of wrongful convictions, as well as rightful convictions, or search warrants being overturned because of a lack of professional translation and interpretation support. With federal and state governments being legally required to provide access to translators and interpreters in any language, as well as the increasing need for linguists to facilitate international law enforcement, there has never been a greater need for qualified translators and interpreters in this field.
At PGLS, we have more than a decade of experience in providing high-quality law enforcement and corrections translation and interpretation services in more than 200 languages. Among the many types of law enforcement and corrections translation and interpretation projects we have completed are:
- Witness Statements;
- Victim Support Letters;
- Court Summons;
- On-site Interpreting for Police Interviews & Court Proceedings;
- Title III Monitoring;
- Inmate Correspondence;
- Training Materials;
- Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty (MLAT) Materials; and
- Audio/Video Transcription & Translation for Witness Statements & Interviews.
Our team of professional linguists are among the best in the business and are experts not only in foreign language translation and interpretation but also in the law enforcement and corrections industries. Additionally, all of our linguists go through our rigorous recruitment and vetting process, and all language projects adhere to our complete, multi-step Quality Control process in accordance with ISO and ASTM standards.
Our law enforcement language professionals speak your language and understand the realities of the legal system in the United States. They undergo rigorous ethics and other professional training to ensure that there is no bias and no misconceptions involved when dealing with someone’s legal fate and they have the qualifications and certifications necessary to translate and interpret for all manner of legal proceedings. We are also able to provide cleared linguists for the most sensitive government legal and law enforcement matters.
