Legal Translation Linguists

The basic requirements for our Legal Translators are that the translator requires either an explicit professional degree in translation or an equivalent degree and documented full-time localization experience. As such we do not just look at documented translation experience, but the experience has to be in a full-time capacity. The ISO standard puts further emphasize on the direction of translation. A translator qualified to translate German to English might not be qualified to translate English to German. While industry-standards are not very consistent in regards to translation direction, we developed an own set of standards to ensure quality. Therefore, our linguist working on Legal Translation Projects require not just the qualifications based on international translation standards like EN 15038 and ISO17100 / 11669 but additionally have to comply to our specific criteria that we found important for Legal & Contract Translations.

Our Legal & Contract Translators have access to the best Legal Translation Term- and Template-Databases that were established and optimized over thousands of projects. The Term- and Template databases have been consolidated for different industries and functional domains. We also create customer-specific Term- and Template databases to improve inter-company translation consistency. Those Term-databases give the linguist additional support to perform the translation faster with a higher quality level leveraging industry or company-specific terms. Lastly, dedicated Contract Translation Memories that include fully pre-translated segments from all our prior projects improve quality as well as reduce cost and turnaround-time for our clients. The segments from prior translated projects are weighted in regards to context and domain to ensure they fit into the new target context.

Legal Translation Process

Our Legal & Contract Translations follow global Translation standards like ISO 17100, ISO 11669, EN 15038, ASTM 2575, CAN 131.10 and J2450 as well as the Globibo Localization Delivery Model. The Translation Standards define the internal processes for the translation as well as the process with you as a Client. We will do a requirement specification and feasibility analysis for your project. Based on this you will receive a quotation and the underlying terms and conditions. Information about data protection and security are furnished to you and are available on the Web site for your review. Upon your confirmation, we commence with the translation via the 6-step process of which 4 steps are mandatory and 2 steps are optional.

A good Legal Translation Process:

1.Translation: Translation by professional with subject matter expertise, prior experience and rock-solid academic background

2.Revision: Bilingual revision of source to target by an expert with the same qualifications as the translator.

3.Review: Optional mono-lingual process conducted by subject - matter expert in the target language.

Legal Translation FAQ

1. What is certified legal translation?

Legal Translation sometimes needs to be certified by any or a sworn translator when providing the documents to an authority. Any translator can certify a translation, providing a personal signature and contact details to authenticate that s/he has performed the translation faithfully and truthfully. A sworn translation is done by a translator that has either taken an oath before a government agency “in general” or specifically for this project.

2. Does a Sworn Translator need to be registered in the local court of the country?

For Sworn Translation, the translators are usually registered in the local court of the country in order to use the official stamp. For Instance, for French Sworn Translation, translators must be registered with with a regional court of appeal in France
