Legal translation

Initially, it is necessary to make a distinction between legal translation and certified translation. A legal translation deals specifically with topics in the legal field, and it does not always have to be performed by a certified translator. On the other hand, a certified translation can deal with any subject, including the legal field, but it must necessarily be performed by a certified translator and commercial interpreter (sworn translator), since it is an official document.

Among the various types of technical translations, a legal translation is one that imposes the most challenges to professional translators. Since it is highly specialized, a legal translation requires the translator to know the various legal systems, to be skilled in legal writing, to have a mastery of the specific terminology, and to be able to standardize the terminology.

A legal translation doesn’t necessarily have to be a certified translation; however, if the translation is for official purposes, then it must be done by a certified translator who is a specialist in that particular area.
