Interpreters Office

The Court Interpreter Management System

What is it?

InterpretersOffice is a web application for managing a busy court interpreters office – for example, a U.S. District Court in the United States' federal judiciary system.

What's so great about it?

It has been developed over a number of years by a full-time staff court interpreter who is also a web developer, with input from his colleagues. With a solid basis in years of experience, it has been rigorously designed to make the administration of a high-volume court interpreters unit as pleasant and efficient as possible. We know of no other product, commercial or otherwise, that is comparable.

Where can I get it?

The sad news is: the current version is not available for public consumption and the forthcoming version is not yet ready for production use. I am working on it. In the meantime everyone is welcome to look at the project's source code repository where it is freely available. When it is deemed ready for production use we will be sure to announce it.

What does it cost?

Nothing. It is a free and open-source project.

Who created it?

David Mintz, at the Interpreters Office, US District Court, Southern District of New York.

When did you say it would be available?

I didn't. But I am working on it. If you're really curious, please contact david@davidmintz.org about access to a demo installation that you can test-drive.

How about a picture of one of your cats?

Of course.
