Accuracy and expertise
Similarly, to the medical and technical fields, accuracy is particularly crucial in legal translations due to the potentially serious consequences. Terminology is highly specific and there are usually no phrasing alternatives, as is the case with other kinds of texts such as marketing or literary. Moreover, translating in the field of law requires in-depth knowledge and expertise of the latter and the judiciary structure in both countries in question. We therefore only work with translators with experience in legal translation. It is our aim to supply you with accurate legal translations.
Certification – Legal translation services Edinburgh
We provide an audit trail with all our legal document translations to assert the source at all times. The law system in the UK is common (rather than civil) meaning there are no “certified” or “sworn” translators. However, legal translations must occasionally be certified, for example when presenting them to public authorities or official bodies. As a result, we offer two translation options. Firstly, The Language Room confirms the translator’s identity and qualifications with a certificate. Or, alternatively, a solicitor (notary in Scotland) notarises the translator’s identity and qualifications.
