Throughout different industries, legal documents are a prevalent factor for conducting business affairs. This type of documents may include topics on lawyer’s briefs, contracts, legal notices, court decisions, trial records, and many more.
More specifically, legal writing and legal translation is the generation of documents to be used for the purpose of legal affairs.
AVALON Legal provides, as a centrepiece of our specialisation, premium-quality legal language services for every industry.
To be successful in this mission in the legal and law sector, it needs linguists with not only language competence but also an in-depth knowledge of the technically complex terminology, of Latin legal terms, legal jargon language and an understanding of the legal concepts. Obviously, working with legal texts is a task that should only be left to the most senior, law-experienced linguists who know the industry inside and out, understand the legal system of the jurisdiction(s) involved, and are proficient at writing and working in legal contexts.
This is not something that a generic translator or agency can achieve by translating word for word, not to mention they won’t know much about appropriate legal writing. They may only be able to provide you with some kind of convenient literal translation, however, the result won’t be of much use to you in the courts. You need more and better than that, you need mastery of the linguistic side coupled with a strong background in law.
The consequences of using unprofessional or subpar language services for legal work can be quite severe. Not only does it compromise the legality of your texts and documents, but it can also be quite costly to fix, whether inept wording during writing or any ambiguity or mistranslation may land you in legal trouble, or simply takes too much time and trouble to correct. Moreover, the impact of an inadequate legal text can do serious damage to your reputation at home and abroad.
Our experts understand the writing conventions that are unique to every individual language. Their capabilities go way beyond a mere linguistical understanding. They have a profound knowledge of key literary devices, and that will help your texts convey a meaningful message in a fluid and professional way. They ensure that the tone is clear and expresses the intended message. We will always tailor every legal text to ensure that it is fit for the purpose towards its specific target audience.
As a player in the legal industry, you will wish to ensure your texts and documents are fit for use at court or when dealing with other jurists. Or if your business may be operating with foreign counterparts, suppliers and customers you will need to make sure that your contracts, terms and conditions, copyrights and patents are fully understood in the target language.
Work in the linguistic legal field can extend beyond the needs of industry to also meet the requirements of individual clients. We provide high-quality legal translations that can be utilised during your personal legal proceeding for instance. Our translators have acquired vast experience in the legal industry to skillfully translate your personal documents, including power of attorney documents, wills, etc.
Anyway, we are at all times dedicated to providing exceptional texts that will aid greatly in both your business and personal legal affairs.
