PIETROLUONGO, Márcia Atálla. Interpreter, you will be. Trab. linguist. apl. [online]. 2011, vol.50, n.2, pp.443-458. ISSN 2175-764X.

A bilingual country, essential in the Translation Studies field for its research on Terminology and Legal Translation, Canada has promoted in the past, and still does, multiple public initiatives, through its Bureau de Traduction, among other bodies, in order to respond to its various national internal needs. This work will present an appellate decision to the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia, a Canadian province, referred in case law as the Tran Decision (1994), an important document which for the first time has set forth the criteria for the grounds of "good interpretation" in the judicial milieu. Such decision from the Canada Court was included in the Guide for Court Interpreters, issued by the Quebec Ministry of Justice - General Direction of Justice and Registration Services (January 2001, revised in 2008), translated and adapted by Pierrette Richard, Court Interpreter in the Palace of Justice of Montreal, from the Freelance Court Interpreter's (1995) produced by the Service of Court Interpretation of the Ontario Attorney General Office.
