During depositions, which involve the recorded questioning of a witness (deponent) before a trial, the accuracy of interpreting can be the difference between one outcome and another. For this reason, an interpreter needs to be highly-skilled, have many years of interpreting experience and be familiar with legal and/or other relevant terminology.
TJC's network of linguist includes Korean deposition and legal/court interpreters of the highest calibre, who are able to work with Korean language speaking witnesses in locations all over the globe. They are familiar with legal procedure, legal terminology, and usually have specialist knowledge of the subject area of the case to ensure smooth communication during depositions, which can often be very taxing. Our Korean deposition and legal/court interpreters have worked for top global law firms in locations in Korea and across the globe.

Korean is the official language used in both North and South Korea. Its genealogical classification is widely disputed and many linguists and language historians class Korean as a ‘language isolate’ (a natural language with no ‘genetic’ relationship to any other language, which has been cultivated in an isolated environment), others believe it belongs to the Altaic language family. In South Korea, the language is most often called Hangungmal or more formally, Hangugeo or Gugeo (literally "national language"). In North Korea and Yanbian Korean Autonomous Prefecture in China, the language is most often called "ChosÅnmal" or more formally, "ChosÅnÅ". Korean people in the former USSR, who refer to themselves as Koryo-saram, call the language "Goryeomal".
Used in the law of the United States and Canada, depositions are, essentially, the recording questioning of a witness before trial. They are used in litigation proceedings as part of the discovery process. In countries like the UK and Australia, oral witness testimony may also be recorded pre-trial but the questioning of witnesses is not permitted. Although depositions are considered "hearsay", and thus evidence gleaned there inadmissable in court, there are some instances which that recorded at deposition can be used in the trial. The courts are not associated with depositions and a judge is not present.
Given that the number of non-English speaking witnesses has increased rapidly, it is necessary for many law firms to call upon the services of professional interpreters to facilitate communication between the counsel and the witness/es. In order to ensure transparency, these interpreters must be experienced, professional and adhere to judicial protocol. TJC can guarantee to offer these services.
