When clients contact us to

provide “Certified Court Interpreters” for their legal proceedings, there is often confusion as to what this actually means. The term “Certified Court Interpreters” refers to a specific designation that interpreters receive by completing course work and passing challenging verbal and written tests. It is interesting to note that these designations are not uniform throughout the United States. While Federal Court designations are uniform, states are not. Federal certifications are required for federal court cases and are only in the following languages: Spanish, Navajo and Haitian-Creole. The remainder of the languages utilized in the federal courts is designated as “Professionally Qualified”, which requires experience but no official testing. Each industry has particular requirements for their interpreting service needs. NAEGELI has interpreters on call to ensure that our clients get the background that best matches the requirement.
NAEGELI has a vast database of experienced and certified interpreters located around the country. Our skilled and friendly staff will promptly and cost effectively fulfill your request. We also provide experts in American Sign Language. When it comes to the most qualified Korean interpreters in Portland, our reputation is unmatched.

We will use Naegeli Deposition services again. The employee I scheduled with was very professional and helpful in assisting us to get a last minute deposition scheduled. The scheduling department was also very professional and helpful when a few issues arose the day of the deposition. We really appreciate their assistance. Thank you.
