* Notice:

The Judicial Council's Master List of Certified and Registered Court Interpreters is provided to assist you in locating an interpreter. You will be held liable for misuse of the information contained in the Master List, including but not limited to the theft or unauthorized use of certification and/or registration numbers.

Government Code �27293 permits California county clerks to certify documents translated into English only if the document has been translated by American Translators Association certified translators, California Certified Court Interpreters, or California Registered Court Interpreters. Court Interpreters Certified by, or Registered with, the Judicial Council of California are authorized in a judicial proceeding to interpret orally the verbal content of documents, but the Judicial Council does not otherwise test or certify an interpreter's written translation skills.

AB 349, the 2007 legislation responsible for this provision under Government Code �27293, can be found at: http://www.leginfo.ca.gov/pub/07-08/bill/asm/ab_0301-0350/ab_349_bill_20070926_chaptered.pdf
