LEGAL TRANSLATION

Legal translation is probably one of the more complex specialties of non-literary translation, as the target text must be just as inambiguous as the source text, nothing can be lost in translation.

Legal translation involves translating the following legal acts:

•         acts of law;

•         regulations;

•         government's official decisions;

•         legal documents (contracts, deeds, powers of attorney etc).

We guarantee full data protection in the translation of sensitive and confidential documents. Our translators have a wide range of experience in legal translation. 

TECHNICAL TRANSLATION

Technical translation makes up the largest proportion of the current translation market, and helps to mediate texts in the following fields:

•         manufacturing;

•         agriculture;

•         maritime affairs;

•         medicine;

•         infotechnology;

•         exact sciences;

•         environmental protection and technology;

•         construction 

•   transportation of goods etc.

It is important to keep in mind some aspects of technical translation.

The text must be:

•         unambiguous;

•         easily comprehensible;

•         as concise as possible (e.g. warnings in user manuals).

A good technical translation is born in cooperation between specialists and translators. Naturally, translators get acquainted with the field, but consult the client's specialists for the most accurate results. Working together, the linguistic and terminological aspects of the text will be of the best quality.

In translating texts about machines and programmes, it is of great help for the translator to be able to use the machine or see someone else do it. This will help imagine the actions written down and help avoid miscommunications which might end up in translation otherwise. 

Here the customer can help the translator out and introduce the specifics of their program or machine.
