As people, products, and ideas cross borders at an increasing rate, law firms are expanding into new markets and new practice areas. When the validity of a contract, the result of a petition, or the admissibility of evidence can hinge upon the interpretation of a single word, the interpretation must withstand any challenge. Only the utmost fidelity and precision in translation will suffice.
NLA can help you handle such high stakes.
Navigate Demands As Diverse As Your Clientele
Discovery in a multidistrict litigation involves ultra-high-volume translation, often with teams of dozens of linguists coordinating the translation effort between firms. This often involves reading thousands of emails, akin to searching for a needle in a haystack. Firms require translators with specialized knowledge in both the law and very specific industries. Mass tort litigation over imported consumer products and other translation-intensive litigation show no signs of abating, and translators with process knowledge continue to be in high demand.
As multinational companies continue to draw upon the global talent pool, they bring highly educated workers to new countries en masse, consequently driving the demand for these types of certification translation services. Birth certificates, marriage licenses, and degrees must be translated for visa applications, and their equivalency in the target country must be certified. Translators in this field must have an understanding of the government entity evaluating the petition as well as the language its officers look for.
The terminology and structure of contracts often differ widely in terms of language and legal tradition. A simple “direct” translation of such contracts can result in a document that is overly vague, messy, or even unintelligible. As international mergers, acquisitions, and other types of agreements proliferate, the need for skilled legal translators capable of such work will continue to grow.
