Log In to Your Interpreter Resources

Credentialed California court interpreters who are currently on the Master List have access to two different portals, the California Court Interpreter Web Portal - CIDCS and CIP's Learning Management System (LMS).

California Court Interpreter Web Portal - CIDCS

Welcome to the Interpreter Portal of the Court Interpreter Data Collection System (CIDCS), a database program of the Judicial Council.

Through the Interpreter Portal, all active interpreters can update their contact information, such as phone numbers, mailing and e-mail addresses, and the counties in which they are available to work. Interpreters can also complete their compliance requirements (online payment and attestation) via the portal. For those interpreters who work in the California superior courts as employees or independent contractors, they are able to enter their daily activity log data as authorized by the court.

For helpful information on how to use the portal, visit CIDCS Interpreter Portal – Resources.
Important: We recommend that you use Google Chrome to access the portal.

Learning Management System (LMS)

Language Access Services now provides access to a learning management system to active certified and registered California court interpreters. The purpose of the learning management system is to provide certified and registered California court interpreters a centralized location to access educational resources produced by Language Access Services. It is a continuously updated resource. 

 Access to the learning management system is limited to active certified and registered California court interpreters and requires login credentials. Please contact to obtain login credentials.
