Legal Translation is a term that refers to the translation of any text used within the legal system.
In legal matters the language used and its exactitude are of capital importance. Professional legal translation is an intricate intellectual exercise in a highly specialised field that requires precision and consistency as well as a sound understanding of the law.
It is a sensitive and complex area where specialist knowledge and confidentiality go hand in hand. Legal translation projects also often have short timeframes, making this one of the most challenging translation types. This is why legal translation services should only be undertaken by those with thorough expertise. After all, just one simple slipup or mistranslation of, for instance, a clause in a contract could quickly lead to misunderstandings which may carry serious legal and expensive financial consequences.
Most legal writing is precise and technical, however as law is a culture-dependent subject field, legal translation is not necessarily linguistically much transparent, which makes the task particularly demanding. Some legal concepts and terms are not shared by every jurisdiction and may have no equivalent in another country. A translation service is responsible for both understanding politico-legal and socio-cultural context behind a legal text and translating it in such a way that a target audience with a different cultural, societal or political background will be able to readily understand.
Knowing both source and target languages and cultures, our legal translators are best positioned to achieve just this for our clients. Where the Latin language is used frequently in legal terminology, we have sound Latin proficiency in-house as well between our legal and medical translators.
