Legal Translation

In international legal relations the translator's job is just as important as the services of a lawyer. An imprecise or false translation will inexorably lead to time-consuming litigation and loss of money. For that reason you would be well-advised to use the services of qualified legal translator who will provide you with a thoroughly researched and grammatically correct text that is in its substance accurate and faithful to the original document.
Your documents will be in particularly good hands. In my work as a state-certified and sworn-in translator in English, German and Polish I deal daily with legal documents such as agreements or court decisions. In addition to my many years of experience in translating such specialised texts, I have undertaken many interpreting assignments in the legal field (at various authorities, courts of law, notaries etc.), and also closely cooperate with several international law firms.

  • Standard lines, prices per word, matches - calculation of translation prices

    In Germany it is customary to calculate prices for translation work with the help of standardised lines of text, so-called ‘Normzeilen’ consisting of 55 characters each including blanks. The number of characters in a source text (original text) or in a target text (translation) can be used as the basis for price calculation. In case of non-electronic texts usually the target text is used for convenience.

  • Reimbursement of translation costs

    Although translations are often indispensable, they are also expensive. As a customer, it is natural that you want to make sure your translation is accurate and meeting the highest standards. It is a great pity when the price is the only criterion for choosing a translator and you eventually have to pay more when problems with the alleged cheaper solution arise.

  • Is Google Translate a good alternative?

    The notion that translators are an endangered species has already been circulating for some time. Machine translation (MT) offered by companies such as Google or Bing is, after all, free of charge and available any time. Granted: MT is improving year on year. It is fairly adequate for private purposes, for example when you are abroad and need quick help with directions or a hotel booking. Even if you cannot rely fully on the offered translations, communication is simplified.
