The Finnish National Agency for Education maintains a Register of Legal Interpreters in which you can find legal interpreters approved by the Board for the Register of Legal Interpreters.
A legal interpreter provides interpretation services in various legal and official matters, such as the processes of the courts, the police and the Finnish Immigration Service. A legal interpreter masters the professional language and standard expressions of these authorities in both working languages.
The Register of Legal Interpreters contains interpreters of the following languages (updated on 1 July 2022):
- Finnish sign language
- Kurdish (Sorani)
In case of a system error in the Register, you can enquire about interpreters’ contact details by sending an e-mail to oikeustulkkirekisteri(at)oph.fi
