RE: Interpreters

I don’t know where you can specifically find a mandarin Chinese interpreter, however, you may find someone through the TN State Court System.  This link is to

at state publication entitled: Tennessee Court Clerk’s Guide For Locating an Interpreter For Limited English Proficiency (LEP) Cases. 

The second page contains contact information that may be helpful.

I’m sorry I can’t be more helpful.  Feel free to contact me if you have questions or I can be of any further assistance.
