Legal translation needs to be accurate and rigorous, and the requirements for translators are very high. Now let's share with you what are the legal translation guidelines?
Legal translation, unlike other translation manuscripts, is just the accumulation of words. It plays a more important role in conveying the concept and connotation of law. Compared with other translation terms, legal terminology is a relatively easy problem to solve, which can be solved only by browsing a good legal dictionary, but it can't only rely on the legal dictionary, because a dictionary alone can't solve all the problems, especially when it comes to a specific concept of a legal system, if it only translates to a specific one Vocabulary, so that readers can not really understand the meaning and legal concepts. According to Shanghai translation company, sometimes legal vocabulary is a label, which represents rich legal meanings.
Legal terms should accurately reflect the characteristics of the target language. Comparatively speaking, the expression of Chinese legal words is simple and easy to understand, and even some Chinese words are not very different in law and daily life terms, but the equivalent English words will have obvious stylistic features, so the translation of law into English must reflect the features of legal English.
We can't use vague words to express legal language. Fuzzy words will bring great difficulties to legal translation. Legal translation must be rigorous, otherwise it is difficult to define the standard. Everything is advancing with the times, and legal terms are no exception. Under the influence of globalization and new technology, the emergence of new things requires the expression of new legal terms, resulting in a large number of new words and new words. If the translator ignores the development of legal terms and cannot grasp the true meaning of these new words with the times, it cannot achieve the accuracy of translation.
