We are currently living in the era of globalisation, multinational organisations, and global media. As such, talented translators are in demand more than ever. But the key questions is, why are legal translations important?

Regardless of which sector you find yourself in, legal documents are integral for the framework of any company, organisation or body. And as a result of our interconnected world, these documents will require, more often than not, translation into one or multiple languages in order to facilitate communication and comprehension, as well as to conform to legal proceedings or requirements.

Generally speaking, legal systems differ across continents and even across neighbouring borders. To illustrate, a crime or a contract, for instance, will be interpreted differently against two different legal systems. For this reason, legal translations must be approached properly, otherwise false judgements may arise which could adversely affect the overall conclusion or any of the parties involved.

However, legal translations permit us to do so much more than simply reaching justice. For example, if all legal translators ceased to exist, then working and studying abroad may no longer be possible. Relocating to a new country, or owning properties oceans away may become an impossible endeavour. Similarly, how would you handle your foreign financial and business affairs if you donโ€™t understand a word that is being communicated! Just think about it, all of what has just been mentioned requires some form of a contract or signing of legal documents that establish order.

But legal translations are not only crucial for affairs that take place overseas. With the UK being renowned for its multicultural status, many of our citizens may not have a mastery or fluent level of English. It is imperative to stress that legalese is extremely complicated, even for native speakers. So, for such cases when an individual may want to file a divorce, or rent a property, for example, translating the relevant legal documents into their first language can assist them in terms of navigating through their legal matters.

Therefore, for individuals and organisations who have very little knowledge of the target language, culture and legal expectations, then personal and business goals could become somewhat out of reach.
