The importance of legal translation can’t be understated as the results of an error don’t bear thinking about.
Contracts, for instance, confer both rights and duties on the parties involved.
A mistranslation of these can lead to an avoidable lawsuit which can be costly and will most likely cause the breakdown of the business relationship.
Alternatively, a transparent, accurate translation allows the parties to fully understand what benefits they can expect as a result of the agreement and what they will be required to do.

Is your translation ‘authentic’?
There are two types of translation in the legal sector; A convenience translation and an authentic translation.
As the name suggests a convenience translation is provided for the convenience of the reader, perhaps to explain aspects of a transaction or to illustrate an issue.
An authentic translation is certified to be such and generally speaking courts will only rely upon authentic translations.
Given that languages often use different structures and conventions, it is inadvisable to simply apply a literal translation. Therefore, our legal experts will look at the meaning and spirit of the source text and then choose the appropriate wording in the target language that will accurately convey this meaning.
