Legal Document translation
Is a very challenging job that needs to be done correctly and accurately, and essentially needs broad and extensive knowledge of legal terminology and practices.
Law is a culture dependent field, which demands highly qualified translators, competent in both languages; the source and the target.
Legal translation should be done by only professional and experienced agencies who can handle it with extreme care and professionalism.
For many legal translation is just Arabic or English contract translation, however legal translation can involve more documents, for example, birth certificates, application letters, technical patent confirmation, deposition records, financial statement, evidence documents, litigation materials and business contracts. Translators should not only possess general knowledge of legal terminology, they should also be well versed in statutory requirements and the legal intricacies of foreign cultural and legal systems.
Legal Document Translation is not a word for word translation, legal translators should have general knowledge of the legal systems of the source and target languages and professional experience in the target language's writing style.
Legal translators should always keep in mind the absence of direct equivalents of some linguistic structures in the target language, which entitles them to find suitable ones similar to the source language terms.

Legal Translation Texts
Translation is an ancient art of transferring speeches, sayings, ideas, and expressions from a language to another with keeping the spirit of saying and the transferred text. This is a hard work, a creative art, and an extremely important profession. At the same time, it is also considered a responsibility, honesty, science, and cleverness that has principles and ways. It is said also that translation is a clear tongue expressing a strange one.
Legal translation texts is a translation between two legal languages expressing two different legal systems. This means that the legal term has been determined previously by the legal system it belongs to and it cannot be understood and accordingly it can’t be translated except through this legal system.
Therefore, the translator of legal texts has to be aware of legal systems of both source and target languages. In addition, he has to translate the legal term of the source language with its functional equivalence in the target language as to use the strategy of (functional equivalence) as long as the usage of this strategy is possible. Nevertheless, this strategy is not constantly possible in the translation process.
Legal translation texts in its general perception is included in scientific translation category, and I want to speak about it in detail because of its importance as they have concepts, ways, and aims. It is generally known that “Legal” is focused on documents with legal subjects and formats like contracts, judgments, and legitimate instruments; accordingly, its translation to another language is considered a legal translation because of defining the meaning of legal forms and terms accurately. Some think that focusing on the legal aspects of the document during the translation process is regarded a legal translation, whilst actually, this conception and definition is not enough, whereas the legal translation in the point of view of judges and lawyers is the translation that has been formed by a lawful expert. This means that it is done and approved by the person or management that is assigned by the system to document and approve the translated paper from language to another in terms of the concept and authority regardless its subject (whether it is legal or not).
The aim of this is to find an appropriate, alternative and equivalent format of the document according to text and subject, in which the translator observe conventions and terms related to the subject. The original concept manifests without any contradiction or ambiguity. Thusly, approving the translation by the authority defined by the law and then called “Legal Translation”.
Importance of Legal Texts Translation
Nowadays, we cannot ignore the importance of foreign languages especially English and French, as they are the most popular globally. Furthermore, the translation from and to Arabic needs verification and accuracy because one word in English can have more than ten meanings and likewise one Arabic word can give several synonyms in English. Therefore, at this point, the talent of the translator shows in the process of choosing right and using the appropriate and alternative words for the Arabic translated text into English and vice versa, whereas it is widely noted a simple lack or unbalance in the translated contracts into English or vice versa.
