Precision and authenticity you can rely on
The translation of legal documents such as contracts, licensing agreements, regulations and terms of service should be left to the experts. Legal agreements can have critical financial and organisational implications for businesses; in order to avoid complications down the line, any translation of such documents must be one hundred percent error-free.
At Translators Family, we ensure that only specialist legal translators work on content with specific legal implications. Our translators are carefully tested and vetted before we assign them any projects, and naturally we only work with linguists who translate into their native language.

A legal translator needs to be able not only to translate the meaning of a text, but also be able to take account of the legal culture of the source country and express it in terms of the legal culture of the target language. It’s almost like performing two simultaneous translations of one document.
Here is a simple example. In Ukraine there is a type of business entity which can be translated literally as “physical person – entrepreneur”. In Russia, the same type of business entity (again translated literally) is called an “individual entrepreneur”. What would be the correct way to translate it into English? Literally, or by finding an equivalent in Anglo-Saxon legislation? Which legislation to be exact – of the US, the UK, or elsewhere? If you are translating into British English, then we suggest using the British equivalent – “sole trader”. If into American English, then “sole proprietor” would fit better. And there exist far more complicated juristic terms, which often should not be translated word for word, but instead localised into the target language.
