ACIA - Arizona Court Interpreters Association 

Features

Arizona Court Interpreters Association endeavors to maintain high standards for interpreters and translators who provide professional and culturally-sensitive language services in a variety of environments.

The Arizona Court Interpreters Association was founded in 1980 by a group of staff interpreters from Superior Court in Maricopa County. Members were soon recruited from Tucson and eventually interpreters from Nogales, Yuma, Flagstaff, Prescott, and other areas joined.

ACIA is the only statewide court interpreter association in Arizona. The majority of current members are practicing interpreters and translators who provide language services to our various court systems in 14 spoken languages and American Sign Language.

The Association is dedicated to offering training and education through workshops and seminars; serving as an interpreters’ network for sharing ideas, experiences, knowledge and employment opportunities with colleagues; working to achieve state certification; and providing a standard of professional conduct and professional code of ethics.
