Court Interpreter Accused of Fraud


Thanks to our friend Álvaro Degives-Más of Reno Languages for digging up this troubling story and video. Many times, interpreters and translators fall prey to those trying to take advantage of their services (scams, non-payments), but court interpreter Milagros Rosa of Florida is actually the one who is guilty of illegal activities. Read and watch her story -- it's an egregious breach of, well, everything, and we certainly hope that there are very few Rosas in the world.

Hello, Judy Jenner: I have read your post and it is really amazing the lack of ethics of this interpreter. I am about to launch my own blog and webpage. I would like to write to you once in a while. Regards from Consuelo.
