Sign Language Interpreters

The current policy of the State of Georgia is to secure the rights of hearing impaired persons who, because of impaired hearing, cannot readily understand or communicate in spoken language and who consequently cannot equally participate in or benefit from proceedings, programs, and activities of the courts, legislative bodies, administrative agencies, licensing commission, departments, and boards of the state and its subdivisions unless qualified interpreters are available to assist them.

The Committee on Access and Fairness in the Courts serves as a resource to Georgia courts and communities by maintaining a list of certified interpreters. All certified interpreters are certified through the national Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf (RID). For additional information regarding interpreters please visit www.rid.org.
