When you hire another company to provide legal translation services for business overseas, you have to watch for several different things, so that you don't lose business or money.

5 Things to Watch Out for in a Legal Translation

There’s a Lot at Stake with Legal Translation • Patents and other legal documents determine how your business functions. • Translations of these documents determine how your business functions in foreign countries.

Making Translations Count • With many legal translations, the deed is done once the document has been submitted. • Make sure you receive a high-quality, worthwhile translation to make it count.

What to look for:

#1 Translating Legal Language • Legal jargon can inhibit the translator’s ability to translate clearly. • The original needs to have as clear language as is possible. • Find legal translation services that are experienced in translating legal language.

#2 No Room for Misinterpretation • Language used by translator needs to be very specific. • Errors can cause problems with documents like patents: potential to limit efficacy of patent. • Errors in legal documents are errors you can’t afford to make.

#3 Technical Terminology • Technological patents have very specialized terminology. • Translation services for legal documents should have someone that is well-versed in terminology. • Databases that store terminology should be used to prevent human error.

#4 Deadlines • Every legal document has a deadline. • Find a translation company with an efficient process. • Not meeting deadlines can cause large losses for a company. • Don’t sacrifice accuracy for efficiency.

#5 Budget Constraints • International business is known for its high costs. • Going over budget on translations can cause problems in multiple portions of the company. • In the long run, you’ll spend less if you receive a high-quality translation.
