Frequently Asked Questions

What is legal translation?

Legal translation is translating documents related to law, such as contracts, laws, regulations and court decisions. This type of translation requires specialised knowledge in both the source and target languages. The translator must understand the languages and the applicable laws to capture a legal document’s meaning and intent accurately. Only a qualified and experienced translator should be entrusted with legal translation.

What are the benefits of using a professional legal translation service?

Professional legal translation services provide accurate translations that capture all relevant nuances, considering cultural differences and specific language rules. This ensures that the document is translated correctly. Additionally, legal documents are often highly confidential, so a translation service can provide the additional security of protecting your data. A professional legal translator will also be able to handle any formatting and layout issues that might arise in the process. Furthermore, a skilled translator can ensure faster turnaround times than if you were to do the translation yourself. A professional legal translation service must provide a document that is translated accurately and quickly.

What types of documents can be legally translated?

A professional translation service can provide accurate translations for any legal document, including contracts, laws, regulations, court decisions, wills and trusts. The translator must be familiar with the relevant terminology in both languages to convey the document’s intent properly.

What measures should I take to ensure accurate legal translation?

The best way to ensure accurate legal translation is to work with a professional service specialising in legal translations. This ensures that you are dealing with a qualified, experienced translator who understands both languages and applicable laws. Reviewing the translated document carefully and ensuring it conveys the intended meaning is also essential. Additionally, communicate any specific requirements or preferences to your translation service so they can best accommodate them. You can ensure an accurate legal translation with careful planning and a qualified translator.

What are some common mistakes made in legal translations?

One of the most common mistakes made in legal translations is the mistranslation of terms, as this can completely change the meaning of a document. Other mistakes include improper formatting and layout, incorrect grammar or spelling, and failure to capture essential nuances or cultural differences. These errors can seriously affect both parties involved in a legal document. Therefore, ensuring accuracy by working with a trusted and experienced legal translation service is essential.

What are the costs associated with legal translation?

The cost of legal translation services can vary depending on factors such as language pair, turnaround time, complexity of the document, etc. Generally speaking, you can expect to pay more for complex or highly technical documents due to the specialised expertise required to translate them accurately. Some services charge a flat rate, while others bill by the hour or page. Researching and comparing different providers is essential to find the most cost-effective solution.
