Features of legal translation when providing legal aid

A lot depends on a lawyer when supporting business transactions, ensuring high-quality legal protection of a client’s interests abroad, as well as when working with other documentation. A lawyer must possess the skills of legal translation and comply with the special requirements in this area for style, turn of speech, terminology.

When concluding international transactions or carrying out any activity on the territory of another country with another language, it is beneficial to use the services of professional lawyers and translators who speak the required languages. This ensures that the assistance provided will be qualified, and large losses due to inaccurate wording in another language will be avoided.

The specialists of our law office are always in the trend of the most relevant changes in legislation and will advise you in accordance with current realities.

Types of legal translation:

1. Corporate documentation (charters, constituent documents, contracts, acts, applications, etc.);
2. Legislative documents (laws, memorandums, legal opinions);
3. Expert opinions, protocols, certificates.

When rendering legal services and working with legal documents, a specialist is obliged to strictly observe terminological unambiguity. He also needs to be fluent in standardized text forms, take into account interlingual features and present everything in full, following a logical sequence.

The main difficulties of international advocacy

A specialist needs to study various legislative systems, legal texts, codes, etc., in order to competently advise foreign citizens. The lawyer also possesses the basic principles of translation of legal texts (style, phraseological units, vocabulary).

When translating a text, professionals pay special attention to certain points:

  • Deviation in style from the commonly used.
  • Turnovers that have been accepted in official stationery.
  • Translation of rarely used locutions into another language.
  • Verbal forms and specific legal terminology that is supposed to be regulated.
  • Legal abbreviations.
  • Unambiguous use of terms (double interpretation is unacceptable).
  • Typical abbreviations that are peculiar for legal documentation.
  • Wordings that have no parallel in another language. In this case, a competent specialist will choose the most appropriate term to convey the exact meaning in the target language.
