Attorney Translation Consultant Review of Judicial Council Forms and Webcontent in Chinese, Vietnamese and Korean , RFP-CFCC-2023-45-DM

 

The Judicial Council of California (JCC), chaired by the Chief Justice of California, is the policy-making body for the California judicial system. The California Constitution directs the Judicial Council to improve the administration of justice by surveying judicial business, recommending improvements to the courts, and adopting rules for court administration. 

The Judicial Council is also responsible for preparation and modification of Judicial Council forms for use by the courts, attorneys, and the public. It provides foreign language versions of forms and information sheets for educational purposes and ensures that foreign language versions of forms are modified in tandem with their English counterparts. Since most court users including those with Limited English proficiency (LEP) often rely on these forms throughout their court case, it is important that JCC forms are legally accurate, easy to understand, and easy to use.  

The Center for Families, Children & the Courts (CFCC) is an office within the Judicial Council. The CFCC is dedicated to improving the quality of justice and services to meet the diverse needs of children, youth, and families, including self-represented litigants, litigants with disabilities, and litigants with Limited English Proficiency (LEP). The Language Access Services (LAS) program, part of CFCC, works to ensure language access for all LEP court users in all 58 superior courts in California.

The Judicial Council seeks the services of up to three attorney consultants or proposer(s) who can provide attorney consultant(s), with exemplary Chinese or Vietnamese or Korean speaking and writing skills, to review the accuracy and completeness of court forms, documents, correspondence, posters, brochures and other informative materials, and web content, that have been translated from English to Chinese, Vietnamese and Korean. As applicable, the attorney consultants will also make recommendations regarding revisions to the aforementioned material.
