Biased interpreter

The biased interpreter – an often undiscovered problem in German criminal procedures

Before I have written about the „incompetent interpreters“ in German court-rooms – today we deal with the biased interpreter.

To start with we can state that court-room interpreters are not the „cream of the crop“. Their pay is not high enough to satisfy the really good one. Of course there are excellent interpreters who enjoy the work in the court-room. But they are hard to find.

Most interpreters you meet with in a criminal or civil procedure live from that kind of profession. And this is where it starts becoming delicate. They depend on getting jobs from the court and from the prosecution. Which might lead them to be a bit „kinder“ towards their employer. Be a person like the one on the picture above.

I do not want to say that they misinterpret intentionally. This would be against their oath and against their professional honor. I do not want to say that – here there should be no misunderstanding here.

But I do say that there is a danger that they might – subconsciously – tend to say rather what they think the prosecutor or the court wants to hear than to go into a conflict. Because the party or the defendant says something nobody would expect. 

I have never seen an interpreter in an argument with the court or the prosecutor – though there would have been reason for that. 

It is hard to detect such constellation and even harder than to get this across to the listener – the authorities. Because the court would rather believe the interpreter than the lawyer. Therefore it is essential that the lawyer has profound knowledge of the language his/her client speaks and can convey this to the person in charge – again the judge or court.

If you have to stand in court in a criminal procedure against you where you do not speak the official language of the court, it could be do unrepairable damage if you are not understood in the way you should. Try to avoid this by hiring a lawyer speaking your language.

litigation funding in Germany

Litigation funding in Germany – a way to finance your legal case

Litigation funding in Germany was very controversial at the beginning when it was introduced. It is still today, but has by now been accepted as a way to finance a civil law case. By now there are twenty companies in Germany dealing with litigation funding. 

The classical situation when need for litigation funding comes up when you earn too much to be granted legal aid, but your financial resources do not allow you to finance a legal procedure where the cost-risk might be several tens of thousand of Euros. Or you simply do not want to take the risk.

For a case with a value of 100.000,- €, the costs of the first instance if you lose the case are already more than 12.000,- €. And this is only the first instance.

From a sum of 100.000,- €, litigation funding is already worth a consideration. Most companies start from that amount.

The fees of the financing companies vary usually between 10 and 50 % of the gain from the case, depending on the value of the case. The higher the value, the more flexible will they handle their fees.
