The Arizona Court Interpreters Association

ACIA was founded in 1980 by a group of staff interpreters from Superior Court in Maricopa County. It has since grown to include interpreters from all over the state.

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 over 25 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; and providing a standard of professional conduct and professional code of ethics.


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.

ACIA accomplishes this through a variety of means:
  • ongoing workshops and seminars on ethics and other timely issues given by professionals in their fields
  • by providing a forum for members to network and to share ideas, experiences, employment opportunities and friendship
