How to Request an Interpreter
Judges, circuit court clerks, court administrators, trial court assistant, district court clerks and other court personnel who have been assigned this duty may request a court interpreter. The Interpreter Program at the Administrative Office of the Courts will then appoint a qualified interpreter to meet the specified need.
Enter the interpreter request through the online request system at www.aocinterpreters.com. NOTE: Each court is assigned its own login, password and code. The website is a secure site and allows the court to view their request at anytime in order to make changes or verify if an interpreter has been assigned. If you are a court who does not currently use this system and would like to, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (501)682-9400.
If your request for an interpreter is less than 72 business hours before the interpreter is needed, please call us at (501) 682-9400 and we will let you know if we are able to satisfy your request.
