The Office of Court Interpreting Services (OCIS) provides professional interpreting and translation services at no cost to assist persons having business with the District of Columbia Courts who have limited English proficiency or who are deaf or hard-of-hearing. The OCIS uses its Web Interpreter and Translator System (WITS), a web-based tool to schedule and track interpreting and translation services. Contract interpreters can post their availability on their personal WITS accounts. WITS is fed most of its schedule information from the DC Courts CourtView database. With this information, staff assign interpreters to future events, record their service time for those events, and process data for payment of their services. For accountability purposes, reports can be produced from the WITS database.
