What is required for the translation of contracts?
When selecting our translators for the legal sector, we cannot disregard either their academic background or their practical experience, which is preferably in a law firm.
Clearly, however, not everyone can be a lawyer and, at the end of the day, lawyers are seldom translators!
The professionals who work with Traducendo have at least 5 years of experience in legal translation, because writing a contract is not the same as translating it. The specific skills and terminology may be similar, but the practical skills, the ability to analyse and the skill in localisation vary profoundly between a trained translator and someone who has only experienced one aspect of legal translation.
Traducendo Ltd relies only on human translators with solid theoretical foundations and practical experience in the field, to ensure the highest quality translations.
Contracts in particular, together with powers of attorney, are among the documents we are most often asked to translate. In an increasingly integrated Europe and globalised world, it is almost impossible not to enter into contracts with foreign counterparts. That said, the type of documents that most often require translation are definitely company documentation, such as corporate objects, deeds of incorporation, or articles of association. Of equal importance, we regularly translate the minutes of shareholders’ meetings and company accounts, which also fall within our areas of specialisation.
The complexity of this documentation varies according to the type of company, organisation or contract. Over the years we have developed our technical skills in assisting European companies to reach even the most distant foreign markets, without having to fear any difficulties that might arise due to incorrect translations.
Banks (for securitisation contracts), international law firms (for financial management contracts), multinational companies from different strategic sectors (for contracts for the supply of services and semi-finished materials) and, sometimes, even small entrepreneurs all rely on us for their legal needs, in the certainty they will find a reliable partner in us.
