Court needs Filipino interpreters

The Courts office is looking for people who speak a specific language of the Philippines, Bisaya or Tagalog.

In Grand Court on Friday, Attorney Phillip McGhee told Justice Priya Levers that his client comes from a province of the Philippines in which Bisaya is spoken and that was his first language.

It is also the language of the complainant in the matter.

Both, however, also speak Tagalog, which Mr. McGhee described as more common than Bisaya.

An interpreter serves the court by interpreting the foreign language into English and the English language into the foreign language.

This particular case would require two interpreters.

Anyone who might be able to assist is asked to contact Court Administrator Delene Cacho at 949-4296 for details.
