Legal Translation Services

Companies are becoming increasingly global. This presents new challenges, such as having to translate contracts, agreements, and other important legal documents across multiple languages.

When that happens, which language should you use? How can you ensure that these documents are legally valid in both the origin and destination countries? Being able to answer those questions is a critical part of succeeding in the modern business environment.

Each country’s legal authorities – whether courts, registry offices, ministries, or executive agencies – operate under their own laws, rules, and procedures. Ignoring them can lead to serious issues for a business trying to establish itself, create a partnership, or resolve a problem. And this “right or wrong” standard is one of the main concerns when it comes to legal translation services.

The Federal Rule of Evidence No. 604 says that translators must be qualified and take an oath promising to do a true translation. A party that does not follow this rule could face sanctions from the court. Similar rules exist at the state level. Our team is capable of following all of the requirements for your case based on advice from your counsel so that you don’t have to worry about it.

Legal Document Translation Examples

As you look more closely at your certified legal document translation needs, it can be helpful to see some sample translation solutions. Here’s a look at what a professional translator may be able to replicate for your company.

Scenario 1

A U.S. law firm defending an aircraft manufacturer against wrongful death claims: related to an aircraft crashing outside the U.S. Both US and non-US citizens hired a U.S. law firm to represent their claims. Depending on the crash site, different languages are used in witness statements, accident investigations, medical documents, etc. Many of these documents would need English translations from a certified legal translator meeting the court standards.

Scenario 2

A contract for business in a foreign country needs to be translated into that country’s language. A party to the contract who does not speak the language would need a certified translation to understand its content. Additionally, a foreign country may require a contract to be written in a certain language to be enforceable.

Scenario 3

A startup company opening a branch in Mexico need to translate its by-laws into Spanish so local attorneys could submit the translated version to the registration authorities. Other documents such as tax documents and contracts between the US HQ and local parties, and personal documents for the US management team relocating to Mexico, may require translation services.

Risks of Using Cheap Legal Translations

Your venture’s success overseas will require legal documents with quality translations from a professional service that can deliver them accurately and in compliance with all laws in the country where they will be used. Even small mistakes can create ambiguity and call into question the credibility of your organization.

Similarly, court proceedings often come down to the facts. If your translation process or the translation agency that you use isn’t up to par, then it could have an impact on legal matters that impact the success of your company.

Expert-level translation skills take years, if not decades, to develop. That is why quality foreign language translations will never be possible at the lowest bid level.

The potential consequences of using cheap and low-quality legal translation services include:

  • The opposing party challenges your translated document and the judge orders you to get a better translation.
  • Court or agency penalties and fines.
  • Increased costs for attorneys and other professionals due to rework.
  • Delays in processing, which could result in lost opportunities.
  • Loss of confidence in your professionalism by partners, courts, and agencies.
  • Interpretation of contract wording in your disfavor when you provided the faulty translation.

Additional Services for Legal Translations

Ideally, your attorney or in-house counsel will tell you the exact legal requirements for our legal translation service. But that doesn’t always happen.

As a free service, our staff can provide some recommendations on additional legal document translation options. For example, our legal translators may suggest each of the following legal document translation services.

Certified Legal Translations

For documents to be used in court, we can certify that our translation is faithful to the original and prepared by professional translators under a professional translation company’s supervision.

If subpoenaed, our company may appear in court to provide a sworn attestation of the certification (costs covered by the Client).

Notarization

A notarization of our Certified Translations adds another element of trust. Notarization is also required for an apostille, which is in turn required for translated documents to be accepted by courts in some countries.

County Clerk

County clerks verify the signatures of notary publics who signed our certification statements. The country clerk will sign along with the notary public’s signature and attach their seal to the document.

Apostille

Apostille is a protocol needed for a document to be considered nationalized in the target country.  In the US, the State Department issues apostilles for translated documents that have been certified and notarized. Learn more about apostilles here.
