Repost from Richard Zorza’s Access to Justice Blog: New York Making Big Progress on Multi-Lingual Court Orders

Please find below a link to a post from accesstojustice.net, authored by internationally-renowned access to justice expert Richard Zorza. In it, Mr. Zorza, who coordinates the (American) national Self Represented Litigation Network, comments on the compliance and efficiency benefits of multi-lingual court orders. He references a technology-based translation process already in use in New York, through which court orders are immediately translated into Spanish on demand, and will soon also be available in Chinese and Russian. With the number of foreign workers and recent immigrants living in Alberta but lacking English fluency, such an initiative could have big benefits here too.
