Your Guide to Legal Translation

How To Find A Law-Abiding Translator

Legal Translation requires precision – as in all translations – but also particular care in the use of terminology. Translating a legal document means conveying the legal system of the source language in the target one so that it is understood by someone who may be familiar with another legal system. And, of course, since a culture is reflected in its legal system, any differences among countries in those legal systems imply differences in terminology; highlighting the need for adaptation and care to acquire the desired accuracy.

A legal translator should always bear in mind the background of the text he/she has to translate and the culture in which it has to be transposed into. No ambiguity is permitted; a wrong legal translation can result in more than an undue delay, unexpected cost or confusion. Really, nobody is likely to sign a contract without having understood each and every term of it! Reaching a mutual agreement can depend entirely on the translation provided. This is why legal translation is challenging – the translator has to overcome terminology, stylistic and cultural issues.

So, never assign a translation to a non-professional translator. A legal translation has to be handled by a well-experienced translator specialising in the field of law. This great deal of experience, the knowledge of legal theory and terminology, as well as the understanding of cultural differences, are all essential ingredients in the recipe for success. Furthermore, our translators are fully aware of the common and civil laws that are used throughout the world. You can be confident that when asking for our service your legal document, certificate or contract won’t get lost in translation.

Let’s not forget the high importance of confidentiality peculiar to legal documents. For a legal translation, privacy guidelines have to be observed. More than being law experts, our translators understand and acknowledge the extreme secrecy of such papers – they are law-abiding translators!
