Description

The Dallas Observer reports that "... judges, lawyers, police and county commissioners all agree that the county, with its burgeoning Hispanic population, needs qualified Spanish translators in its courtrooms. Just who those translators should be and how they should be qualified are points of contention..." This article examines "how well the county's courts are serving Spanish-speaking defendants." The reporter uncovered that the company the county hired for providing translators "frequently employs improperly trained translators whose mistakes often result in mistrials."
