Legal Translation

Legal translation is the translation of texts within the field of law. Usually, these texts relate to Certificates of accuracy, Witness statements, Depositions of Trust, Wills, Articles of Incorporation, Litigation Documents, Immigration Documents, Intellectual Property Rights etc. only. While translating a legal text, a translator should keep in mind that the legal content of the source text is structured in a way that suits that culture and this is reflected in that legal language; similarly the target text is to be read by someone who is familiar with his culture- specific legal system.

  • Basic, for informational purposes only (FIPO) translations- FIPO offers a fast, cost effective alternative to full, certifiable translations. While not as polished as the latter, FIPO translations do enable you to ascertain the complete content of a document.
  • Summary Translations- these include a brief summary of the content (a few sentences) when you need an overview of the document on shorter turnaround time. This is also a time- and cost- effective way to cull large volumes of documents and identify those that need full translation
