Notice to Foreign Language Interpreters about Certification
Tulsa County District Court will no longer be providing certifications to foreign language interpreters. The
Supreme Court has authorized a certification program for spoken language interpreters in the Oklahoma
courts based upon the nationally recognized standards approved by the National Center for State Courts
(NCSC) (also known as the Consortium for Language Access in the Courts).
At this time, applications are being accepted from Oklahoma residents seeking
credentials as spoken-language interpreters in the following categories:
· Provisional Interpreter Status
· Certification by Reciprocity
Instruction sheets, a list of certified interpreters, and additional information is available on the
Supreme Court’s website, here, along with application forms and other materials.
Applicants should READ THESE MATERIALS CAREFULLY!
