Legal translations require the utmost in accuracy and precision. This ensures that the meaning of your legal, financial, and business documents is clearly communicated across language barriers and adheres to local regulations. But how do you know your translation is to the quality you need? This is where certified translation services come into the picture.
What does ‘certified translation’ mean?
A certified translation is where the translated document is signed off by the translator, who accepts responsibility for the reliability and accuracy of the content. Typically used in formal proceedings, many lawyers, purchasing managers, and quality assurance professionals require certified translations for legal purposes.
As an ISO 20771:2020-certified translation company with strict processes in place, our team here at Intertranslations offers expertise in quality legal translations you can rely on. Following strict processes, below are some of our key considerations for producing accurate and precise legal translations while addressing common client concerns of time, quality, and price.
1. Specialist legal translators
The first step to ensuring that certified translations of legal documents meet the expected quality standards is to work with professional translators specialising in legal translations. They possess an in-depth understanding of terminology, concepts, and linguistic nuances, and so will deliver accurate translations that reflect the meaning of your original documents.
At Intertranslations, we have a team of experienced legal translators who are native speakers of your target language. This means that by collaborating with our reputable translation and localisation company, you gain access to professionals who excel in this specialist field.
2. Contextual understanding
Translating legal documents, as well as other financial and business documents requires more than mere linguistic proficiency. A comprehensive grasp of the legal systems, business practices, and cultural contexts of both the source and target languages is also essential.
This is because legal concepts often differ across jurisdictions and as such, accurate translations require a deep understanding of the specific legal frameworks involved. By working together and selecting translators who are familiar with your target market, we can ensure that your translations also follow any local legal requirements.

Once you have the right translator for the job, robust quality assurance measures are crucial for addressing concerns about the quality of legal translations. This involves multiple stages, from translation and editing to proofreading and carrying out a final review.
