Why Does a Legal Contract Translation Need to Be Certified?

Legal contracts often require certified translations for several reasons:

  • Legal Validity: A contract often needs a certified translation to be recognised in court or by regulatory authorities.
  • International Business: When dealing with international partners, certified translations ensure that contractual obligations are clearly understood and legally binding across borders.
  • Compliance: Many industries have regulatory requirements mandating certified translations of legal documents to ensure compliance with local laws.


What are the Translation Requirements for a Legal Contract?

Legal contract translations demand a high level of precision and understanding of legal concepts. Here are some of the things you should expect from a legal contract translation:

  1. Exact Legal Terminology: Use of appropriate legal jargon and phrases as per the contract's jurisdiction.
  2. Consistency: Uniformity in language and terms throughout the document to avoid ambiguity.
  3. Confidentiality: Strict adherence to confidentiality due to the sensitive nature of legal contracts.
  4. Format and Structure: Maintaining the original format and structure of the contract for legal validity.
