International litigants will appreciate that the FPC strives to further improve the overall setup for simultaneous tranlation at hearings:
A currently unresolved issue is the lack of interpreter booths at the Federal Administrative Court. As a result, temporary ad hoc solutions need to be found each time interpreters are needed to facilitate communication between international litigants. This happens more regularly at the Federal Patent Court than at the Federal Administrative Court. The two institutions are currently working on ways to address this issue.
