Business and Legal Document Translation

What is Contract Translation Service?

The translation of legal documents such as translation of contracrs is the most difficult of all kinds of translations and requires the highest form of accuracy and a thorough knowledge of legal systems, terminology, language and cultural differences. It uses the content and terms of the legal system in force in the country of origin of the source document. As the world becomes more global, the need for legal translation is increasing. In addition to language barriers, differences between legal systems make legal translation very complex.

Choosing to outsource Contract Translation Service 

The translation of legal documents such as contracts is considered one of the most difficult types of translation. A legal contract translator must have skills in three areas: competence in the target language, familiarity with relevant terminology, and general knowledge of the legal systems of the source and target language. Applying word-for-word translation to legal documents is simply not an option.

Legal translation is limited by the field of law and the need to maintain cultural factors according to the source document. The translated document or target text must respond to this cultural structure so that there is no way any violation of the real meaning or jurisdiction. That is why it is important to find a right agency that provides Contract Translation Service that you can rely on!

Do you need a Certified translation?

You may be told that your translation needs to be “certified” by a professional translator or translation agency. The definition of a certified translation may vary depending on the laws of the country concerned.

The translated documents should consist of three main parts: the translation, a copy of the document in the original language, and the company’s special seal for translations. Each page of the translation should be stamped separately. The translation may also require a statement signed and stamped by the translation company to affirm that the translated text is an accurate and complete rendering of the original source document.

As well as a signature and a stamp, the translator or translation agency is also expected to add the date, and their contact information.
Make sure you also check to see if additional documents (such as a copy of the translation company’s business license) are required.
