The National Center for State Courts, on behalf of the Language Access Advisory Committee, has created the National Database of State Court Interpreters. The national database includes certified and qualified court interpreters sorted into National Proficiency Designations.

For information on using the database please read this manual; Using the Database.

For questions or assistance with this database, please contact staff of the Language Access Services Section at (703) 841-6903.


This National Center for State Courts (NCSC) database of spoken-language and sign-language interpreters includes information provided by state program managers. NCSC makes no warranty, express or implied, as to any of the listed interpreter’s experience, qualifications or compliance with certification requirements.

The risk of any and all damage or unsatisfactory performance rests with the user. In no event shall NCSC, its directors, officers or employees be liable for any loss, expense, or damage of any type or nature arising out of the use of these interpreter services.

Users of the database are encouraged to learn more about a particular state’s credentialing requirements when searching for a certified or otherwise qualified interpreter to interpret in a particular jurisdiction.
