When you are working with a deponent with limited knowledge of the English language, the use of an interpreter will be necessary. But are you sure that you are using your interpreter effectively? Are you connecting with your deponent to get the answers you need? Working with clients, parties, and witnesses with limited to no English proficiency poses a host of communication and cultural issues for attorneys that can potentially impact the outcome of the litigation.
This elimination of bias session will assist attorneys representing clients in depositions, as well as attorneys taking the deposition. An experienced interpreter will teach you simple steps to promote effective communication, identify cultural norms that might have the effect of confusing the deponent, and leave you with strategies for a faster and less frustrating deposition.
