Certified Court Reporters and Interpreting Services for your Deposition in Illinois

These days, many parties to lawsuits and other legal matters come from diverse backgrounds and may not speak English as their first, second or even third language. Sometimes, this can pose problems for attorneys because it’s not necessarily easy to find an interpreter who is capable of translating a particular language within the time frame in question. Depending on your circumstances, you might even need a court reporter that is prepared to work with you to provide the necessary transcription in multiple languages. This is why many of our longtime clients find this to be an increasingly valuable and oft-used part of our service.

As you can probably tell by now, we work hard to meet all of our clients’ litigation support needs, whatever they may be. We believe that delivering a comprehensive court reporting service means removing language barriers. That’s why we supply certified court reporters and interpreters for virtually any language or dialect you might encounter, as well as sign language for the hearing impaired. In fact, we can arrange for interpreting and translation services for over 140 different languages, including Mandarin, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Dutch, Polish, Japanese, Russian, Hindi, and Arabic, among many others. In addition to being prepared to provide real-time translation of attorneys’ questions, we can also provide translation services during the discovery process. So whether you need an interpreter for a local case, an international deposition, or an arbitration hearing or mediation session, we can make sure that all your needs and requirements are met.
