The legal system of every country in the world varies from one another. It is common for the rules and regulations of a country to be defined by looking at the cultural attitudes of its citizens. Therefore, the beliefs and values of a society are often at the centre of law making. For international lawyers and solicitors, this means professional legal translation is essential. Not only are foreign policies challenging to understand but legal terminology is vast and complex – particularly when certain terms exist in one language and not another.
Here at Absolute Translations – one of the UK’s leading providers of translation services, we stress to our customers the importance of utilising an expert legal translation service. After all, we have worked for over 200 legal firms across the UK to provide reliable translations at the highest standard. Below our team of legal translators further discuss why legal translation is vital for courts:
When working on international cases, a legal translator should be brought in to translate important documents. A professional translator will be able to translate everything from witness statements to multinational corporation contracts. They will describe the procedure and meaning of the legal term, without changing the original meaning of the legal document. In certain cases, a crime may be interpreted differently in different countries. That’s why when translating a legal document containing the crime, the translator will pay attention to the original interpretation of the crime. After all, misinterpretation could lead to a different judgement that could go horribly wrong.
At Absolute Translations, we believe it is very important that legal documents are translated accurately, to ensure the original meaning is kept intact. Our team of professional translators understand that errors are not acceptable in any cases of translation. That’s why our native-speaking translators have a strong legal background and relevant qualifications. They are also based in offices around the world so they have in-depth knowledge of the target language and culture.
