Legal Translation Services

For any business hoping to spread its wings or already trading internationally, legal translation services are an essential service to have available, at least for advice.

There may well be a minefield of legal documentation, contracts and guidelines to delve through. Legal document translations can be extremely complex, as legal systems can differ greatly between countries and legal bodies, concepts and terminology in one language may not have an equivalent in another.

Don't let this happen to you!

In 1840 the British government made a deal with Maori chiefs in New Zealand. The English legal treaty stipulated that the Maori had to give up Sovereignty, but the translation only said that they had to give up governance, leading them to believe they would still retain the right to rule themselves. There are still story legal issues surrounding this treaty!
