Why Does Legal Translation Matter?

Globalization comes with challenges. Legal translation is one of them. Making your venture succeed overseas requires accurate translation of the legal documents compliant with the local laws of the target country. If the translation team you work with are unfamiliar with the legalese and the legal practices of the country, you are prone to tarnish your company’s credibility through the inaccurate legal jargon translation, misspellings, and unintelligible text passages, etc. in the legal documents.

Using the services provided by cost-conscious legal translation agencies could lead to costly consequences:

  • Be ordered by the judge to provide a better translation of your legal document translation because the opposing party question it;
  • Faces fines and penalties by court or agency;
  • Additional costs resulting from rework;
  • Lose possible opportunities during the delays;
  • Damage your professional image among partners, agencies, and courts;
  • Inaccurate contract translation in your disfavor.

At Wordspath, we only assign legal translation projects to legally trained native translators who fully understand the legal implications of the content they are translating.

What Is Legal Translation?

Legal translation transposes the written texts in the legal documents and materials from one language to another without changing the original meaning.

The translation of legal documents is complex not only because laws are interdisciplinary, but the judiciary systems vary from country. Consequently, when deciding whether a translator is competent to translate legal documents, it’s critical to consider if his/her legal background indicates thorough knowledge and practical experience in both countries’ legal systems.

Legal matters are highly technical and already complicated enough in the source language, let alone putting them in a multilingual context. That’s why only a native experienced translator knowledgeable of legal concepts and terminology in both countries can deliver accurate legal translation into the target language.

With over 20 years of experience in legal document translation services, Wordspath is globally trusted by leading law firms and legal teams of multinational corporations to provide solutions for consistently high-quality legal document translation into 150+ languages.
