Family members and friends may not interpret on a defendant’s behalf.
Interpreters are arranged prior to court appearances with Integrated Communities and at the expense of the Steamboat Springs Municipal Court. Defendants may contact Integrated Communities directly or request through the Court, however, the Court needs to know if an interpreter will be appearing due to scheduling. Languages include Spanish, Asian variants, Russian and African variants.
It is recommended that even if a defendant has a working knowledge of English, they have an interpreter for the legal terminology.
