What's Legal Translation?

In order to understand what legal translation is we need to understand the background to the current discussion on legal translation.

The translation problems can be considered as an analysis of error, working from the premise of the fundamental impossibility of textual translation. This is because the technical legal language is interconnected with the structure of the law.

The translation problems can also be considered as a problem of legal terminology. Legal terms refer to different areas of a legal system; For this reason a technical translation has to describe some aspects of this legal system so that all nuances are covered. So, legal translation is in fact comparative law. A legal translator does not face a linguistic problem of comparing to language systems but they compare two legal systems with their own structure. The relationship between the languages is not so important as the relationship between the two legal systems that these languages represent.

Making legal language uniform at the international level is essential. Some linguists suggest the development of a legal metalanguage to convey legal terms that are defined by national law. We can only attain a complete equivalence between the terms of two legal systems if both legal languages refer to the same legal system, finding an equivalence between two legal systems and not two languages.

If no equivalence can be established an alternative is paraphrasing, the creation of neologisms or a combination of these.

Clients Feedback

I had to provide to my employer with the translation of 4 official documents from Spanish to English. They were all academic documents that I needed for submission to the Sussex Health Service for a job application. She gave me a quote for the job in less than 3 hours and I had all my documents translated in less than 24 hours. Thank for such a fast service.

Sussex, 22nd January 2015

I needed to get my marriage certificate translated by a certified and registered translator. We were married in Cuba so it needed to be translated from Spanish to English. I only had to attach the certificate and I got a reasonable quote. We were very impressed with the certified translation we received at home. We highly recommend this service. Many thanks.
