for companies and private persons
Legal translations require more than just perfect language skills. Legal documents protect and secure your rights and must be translated without errors to prevent severe consequences. Legal translations demand thorough knowledge of criminal law, legislations and the legal jargon. The use of legal terminology strongly depends on the language, the country and its legal system, procedures, law texts and the type of document you need translated.
Legal translation for companies and organisations
We have more than ten years of experience in the translation of specific legal documents which do not require legalisation. You can call on us for the following types of legal translations:
- Employment contracts
- Rules and regulations
- Notarial deeds
- General terms and conditions
- Terms and conditions of sale
- Rental agreements
Primarily, we deliver legal translations to companies, organisations and associations from and to Dutch, French and English. Although we do work with a number of sworn translators, we no longer offer sworn translations due to organisational reasons.
Legal jargon and endless sentences
In sharp contrast with commercial translations where short and direct sentences are the norm, legal texts mainly consist of technical jargon and standard expressions hidden in endless sentences which laymen cannot make head or tail of. The complex legal sentence structures often contain combinations and expressions rarely used outside of their legal contexts. Contracts, rules and regulations, notarial deeds and general terms and conditions may contain sections or articles of half a page. A legal translator must possess profound language skills of both the source language as well as the target language to be able to convert those kinds of sentences into another language.
Confidentiality and strict compliance with professional secrecy
We are fully aware of the confidential nature of legal documents. Although we do this for all our customers’ documents, we want to emphasise again here that we comply with professional secrecy for every legal translation. If desired, we can commit this in a confidentiality agreement.
