For assistance in locating "certified" American Sign Language interpreters and the most qualified interpreters for languages for which certified and provisionally certified interpreters are not listed on the registry, contact the following:

  • American Sign --  Email: Maureen Larsen or call 402-213-8018
  • Other Languages --  Email: Interpreter Coordinators or call:
  • Adriana Hinojosa (Omaha), 402-250-0041
  • Raul Escobar (Lincoln), 402-440-9989


Trial Court Services maintains an on-call remote interpreter calendar from weekdays 10:00 am – Noon and 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm CDT.

If a Nebraska Court Interpreter is not available, judges, court, and probation staff can access the Language Line (username and password will be required to log in).


Please note:  The year next to the interpreters' status (certified, registered, other) is the year they attained that status in Nebraska. Some interpreters may have attained the status in a different state in a previous year, but for purposes of this registry, the year noted is the year in which they attained the status in Nebraska.

 

 

Please select desired language.
