The court has ample resources when it comes to handling different languages, and will commonly be able to provide an interpreter. Simply contact the court before your scheduled appearance and inform them that you need an interpreter. This is very important, as it is never a good idea to ask a loved one or a child of yours to translate for you, and there are some courts that will not even allow it. Many courts understand that there are members of the surrounding community that do not speak English, and are more than willing to provide the help needed to ensure that you receive the proper help in any and all situations.
Beware, there are people in your community who will offer to take you to court and translate for you, for a fee. The fact is the court will provide you an interpreter, but you have to let them know in advance. Some of these helpers may do you more harm than good. They try to give you advice and suggest what to do when you speak to the prosecutor or judge. The wrong advice can be worse than no advice.
