The oral portion of the Federal Court Interpreter Certification Examination is so challenging, that only about 6% actually pass. That may be a discouraging statistic, and for many people, it may mean failure.
But not for you.
You can join that triumphant 6% with our innovative training method. Our program uses real-life court proceedings curated from family, civil, and criminal cases with the Federal Court Interpreter Certification Examination in mind.
By combining state-of-the-art technology with proven psychological principles, we’ll help you develop the knowledge, skills, and confidence to ace this demanding test.
Interpretrain's 3-Step Method™ and Why It Will Work for You
The Federal Court Interpreter Certification Examination requires you to perform several complex mental processes very quickly, with a high degree of accuracy, and all at the same time. With our 3-Step Method™, you will master each of these tasks separately, and then learn how to successfully execute them simultaneously.
STEP 1: Learn the Vocabulary
Memorize English/Spanish court terminology through:
• Audio Drills
• Slide Shows
• Target Practices (to focus on the terms you select)
Don’t have the time to study vocabulary? Our Audio Drills can be used on the go. Whether you’re exercising, doing chores, or on public transportation, you’ll be able to memorize the necessary bilingual legal terminology.

STEP 2: Interpret and Voice Record
Our building-block approach will help you master the three modes of interpretation tested on the exam:
- Sight Translation
STEP 3: Grade
Seamlessly evaluate your progress with our grading technology. This immediate feedback helps you learn faster and takes the guesswork out of your training by letting you know:
- Your grade
- Which vocabulary needs further practice
- When you are ready to move on to the next lab
With your strengths and weaknesses highlighted, you’ll know exactly what you need to review in order to achieve your best score. This invaluable feature is not offered by any other self-study interpreting program.
