Law - Legal Translation

Law - Legal Translation Legal translation is a specialised skill as each legal system is derived from a country’s specific history and culture. As a result, concepts which form part of the legal system in one country may be totally incomprehensible in the legal system of another country.

A legal translator must therefore have a good knowledge of both source and target legal systems to be able to use legal terminology effectively to achieve the desired legal results. Some legal terms can be easily mistranslated which could lead to the entire text being totally misunderstood. A mistranslation of a term in a contract, for example, could result in your breach of contract and a hefty payment in damages and legal costs.
