Interpreter Requests

Interpreters can be requested to assist court users during court hearings, trials, and other court ordered services.

Please request interpreters as soon as the hearing is set and no later than three business days before the scheduled hearing.

Use the Interpreter Request Form to request an interpreter. You need to request an interpreter for each court hearing or court ordered service as interpreters are not scheduled automatically.

If an interpreter has been requested, a party who cancels or continues a hearing must notify the interpreter coordinator of the change promptly after knowing the matter will not be heard. Many interpreters travel to Thurston County from outside our geographical area and have strict 48-hour cancelation policies.
