Legal Translation – Research, Articles, Case Studies



Legal translation is the process of translating legal documents and materials from one language to another while ensuring that the meaning, context, and legal implications of the original document are preserved in the target language. Legal translation is a highly specialized field that requires expertise in both the legal and linguistic aspects of the translation process.

Legal documents that are commonly translated include contracts, agreements, patents, court transcripts, regulatory documents, and other legal materials. These documents often contain complex legal terminology and concepts, which require a deep understanding of the legal systems and language used in both the source and target languages.

Legal translation also requires careful attention to cultural differences and nuances, as legal systems and practices can vary greatly between different countries and regions. Legal translators must be able to accurately convey legal concepts and terminology in a way that is culturally appropriate and easily understood by the intended audience.

Given the importance of legal documents in various industries and contexts, accuracy and attention to detail are critical in legal translation. A single mistranslation or misinterpretation can have significant legal consequences, making it essential to work with experienced legal translators who are subject matter experts in both the legal and linguistic aspects of the translation process.

Types of Legal Translation We Offer

Globibo offers different types of legal translation services, which are often required for legal and official documents and have different requirements and procedures. Here is a brief explanation of each type of legal translation service:

  1. Sworn Translation: Sworn Translation is a type of legal translation service that is usually required for official documents, such as birth certificates, marriage certificates, and academic transcripts. This type of translation is performed by a translator who has been authorized by a court or government agency to provide sworn translations. The translator signs a statement certifying that the translation is accurate and complete, and the document is then stamped with the official seal of the translator.
  2. Certified Translation: Certified Translation is a type of translation service that is usually required for legal and official documents that are not subject to Sworn Translation. Certified translations are often required for documents such as contracts, agreements, and other legal documents. The translator signs a statement certifying that the translation is accurate and complete, and the document is then stamped with the official seal of the translator.
  3. Notarized Translation: Notarized Translation is a type of translation service that involves an additional step of notarization. The translator signs a statement certifying that the translation is accurate and complete, and the document is then stamped with the official seal of the translator. The notary public then certifies the authenticity of the translator’s signature and seal, which adds an additional level of legal validity to the document.

Sworn translation, certified translation, and notarized translation are specialist translation services needed for legal and official documents. These services are offered by our skilled legal translators to guarantee that translations are precise, dependable, and satisfy each client’s particular needs.
