Issues when Translating Legal Documents
Legal Field: A good legal translator knows that within the legal field there are completely separate areas of law that require specific translation techniques and legal vocabulary. For example a contractual document has little in common with a will.
Legal Concepts: A good legal translator should search out and define legal concepts expressed in the source language prior to translation as these may not even have an equivalent in the language or legal system of the target text.
Country Legal System: The legal translator should be aware that each country has its own legal terminology (based on the particular legal system of that country), which will often be quite different even from the legal terminology of another country with the same language.
Legal Purpose: A good legal translator should understand the intended use of the translation, which has as much bearing on his or her approach as the text of the document itself. Terminology, phraseology, syntax, register (tone) and a myriad of other parameters will be affected by the purpose of the translation (e.g., is the translation for information purposes only, binding contract language, or for submission as evidence in court).
Certified Legal Translation Services
It is in the legal field when the importance of a translation being certified really comes to the fore. Legal systems are different in every country, and a document will only usually be deemed relevant if it has the correct form of certification.
Official Translation Services
Paspartu provides official translations in all major languages. Official or notarized translations must be an accurate, exact and complete translation of the source and will only be accepted by the authorities if they include the translator’s name and signature, thus certifying the document’s validity before the courts and/or other authorities. We are experienced in delivering first class official translations across the world. Our translations are accepted by Courts of Law, the Home Office and many other government agencies.
Over the last 12 years we have covered the entire field of patents and intellectual property. Clients include:
patent law offices
patent departments of large corporations
research & development institutions and universities
Patent Translation Teams: We only use professionals with expertise in the patent subject matter (software, medical, engineers, pharmacologists etc) to perform the translation, and editors who are professional experienced translators in their native language to ensure the quality of the translation. Our production methodology together with the high caliber patent team we employ, ensures:
consistent and patent-specific terminology
format requirements compliance
no typographical errors
an accurate translation
Patent Language Technology: We handle and process documents regardless of format: electronic editable file, fax, scanned PDF, hardcopy. Our technology infrastructure ensures that the patent is ready for use with translation memory software. This way we can create databases of all of the translation done for the customer and thereby offer greater consistency among related patents, so that we can deliver faster and more cost effective.
