About us

Legal Interpreters is an agency approved by the New Jersey registry of court interpreting resources.

The company

LEGAL INTERPRETERS LLC is an interpreting agency founded by an actual interpreter with a broad and extensive interpreting experience. Agata Baczyk has been working as an independent interpreter for several years and decided to start her own interpreting agency in order to address the industry's need for professional and experienced interpreters. Most interpreting agencies are not able to screen or assess their interpreters effectively because they don't have the needed tools and knowledge of what that job entails. As a company led by a professional interpreter we are able to ensure that the linguists we contract with are knowledgeable and experienced.

The owner Agata Baczyk

Agata Baczyk has been interpreting since 2006. She is a Polish interpreter with experience in legal and medical interpreting as well as social work, educational and community interpreting. In addition to being a Master Level Court Interpreter in New Jersey and a Certified Court Interpreter in NYS and PA, she is also a qualified medical interpreter and worked... in Bellevue Hospital Center for few years. She taught a Healthcare Interpreting class in at a number of CUNY schools, including Hostos Community College and LaGuardia Community College. She decided to start her own interpreting agency in order to address the industry's need for professional and experienced interpreters. view more

Our interpreters

Our interpreters are some of the best linguists in the nation. Each resume is carefully reviewed before an interpreter is added to our database. We make sure the interpreters we work with are certified by a state or a federal court. For those languages that cannot be certified, because testing is not offered, we contract interpreters that have worked in the courts in the past and have solid and proven experience to ensure they are qualified to perform interpretation in the legal setting.

Services

We have a certified professional that will meet your expectations in a variety of different interpretation settings. We review and verify the experience and credentials of every linguist we hire to bring you the highest quality services available.

ATA 2015 Miami, FL (November 2015)

We recently attended the American Translators Association's 56th Annual Conference in sunny Miami! It was such an amazing experience. We connected with many new interpreters and translators throughout the conference as well as caught up with those we've worked with before, attended informative workshops about our always-changing industry, and even met some of our current clients!

For those of you who do not know, the American Translators Association is the largest professional association of translators and interpreters in the United States with over 10,000 members! Attending this prestigious event is an honor and we look forward to the next conference in San Francisco, California in 2016!

We are on the news! (December 2015)

We recently were a part of an amazing conference called "Doing Business in Algeria Road Show 2015" hosted by The US-Algerian Business Council and The American Arab Chamber of Commerce. This conference brought together U.S. & Algerian government officials and CEOs of both public and private companies from Algeria to meet their high-level counterparts in the US in order to conduct productive business to business discussions.

We were tasked with scheduling 40 simultaneous and consecutive French interpreters in two major cities (Washington, DC and Detroit, MI). With such high profile government and business officials attending, our client had very high expectations. We provided the best of the best and nothing less.

After screening over 100 French interpreters from 7 different states, we are proud to say that we exceeded our client's expectations! Interpreting for a conference of this magnitude isn't an easy task, but our interpreters performed wonderfully! One of our interpreters in Detroit, Frank Fernandez, was even featured on Detroit's Channel 7 News while interpreting for Algeria's Minister of Industry, Abdelslam Bouchouareb. Check out the clip above which was aired in Detroit and featured on WXYZ.com!

Watch our interpreter, Frank Fernandez, interpreting for the Algerian Minister of Industry and Mines at the Doing Business in Algeria Road Show 2015.

NJ Based Court Reporting Firm • Posted on October 26, 2014

Legal Interpreters has been a great company with which to work. As a busy court reporting firm we have very time sensitive requirements. LI has been able to accommodate us in every instance; with both common and uncommon languages and even last minute requests. They are friendly and very focused to our specific needs and the needs of our clients. Their interpreters are on time and proficient in their respective languages.

Albert J. Rescinio, Esq. • Posted on October 26, 2014

Legal interpreters are very easy to deal with, were fast and did a great job. We needed a tape that was in Russian translated and transcribed into English, and they accomplished that in a very short period of time. There responsiveness, professionalism, and pricing were all excellent.



Legal Interpreters LLC believes in giving back to the community. Read the letter by Elaine Schnall of Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany, Inc. about our translation contribution to the Polish-born Jewish Holocaust survivors.
