Summary

Interrogation of Spanish speaking sources by English speaking interrogators continues to be a realistic scenario due to continued United States involvement in Central America. The use of bilingual interpreters, when applied correctly, enhances applied interpersonal communication in this cross-cultural context. Analysis of the interrogation situation evidences the need for interpersonal sensitivity by the interrogator. There are verbal and nonverbal communication elements which are central to a successful interrogation using an interpreter. A primary verbal concern deals with the approach used by the interpreter to convey interrogator statements. Nonverbal concerns deal with vocalic (tone of voice, inflection, and intent), proxemic (the physical arrangement of the three individuals), eye contact, and kinesic (body movements) considerations. The interpreter needs to serve as a bridge of understanding, verbally and nonverbally, between the interrogator and source. (MM)
