Features of the legal documents translation
The translation of legal documents takes into account the specifics of the profession of those who read the source text: judges, lawyers and other representatives of the legal community. In practice, documents have to be translated into professional slang, a special language known only to these professionals. This language is characterized by legal terminology, verbosity, formality, and complex sentence structure with many passive voices. The translator must understand whether legal terminology is being used for legally binding documents or whether the document is for public viewing.
How is Legal Translation regulated?
In many countries, the activities of legal translators are regulated by the state. To work in this area, you need a higher education in the field of business and legal translation. In Argentina and Brazil, legal translators need government-issued certificates. In the Netherlands, Sweden, Spain, translators take a professional oath and regularly confirm their qualifications by passing an exam. In the UAE, the government issues a license for the professional practice of legal translation, which must be renewed every year.
