Legal translations

Specialist translations in the legal field must not only reflect the content of the respective contracts, court decisions or official documents, but the terminology must be legally compliant and, in some cases, may need to be certified by a sworn translator. In addition to overcoming linguistic and cultural barriers, detailed knowledge of the legal position in the country of the target language is important.

For all legal translations, Lingualife works with a professional network of lawyers, notaries and legal advisors..

We offer, among other things, legal translations for:

  • Legal pleadings
  • Contracts and articles of association
  • Judicial decisions
  • Judgments and claims

  • Patent documents
  • Trade register excerpts
  • Sworn translations
  • Medical certificates and medical reports

Quality matters

If you need your documents certified, we offer certification services like apostilles, legalizations or notarized translations and will use them tailored to your needs.

Machine translation (MT)
Machine translation can help lower costs and accelerate turnaround times for high volume legal translation projects where time or budget is limited. It can help you get the “gist” of documents in order to identify which ones require more accurate human translation. At Lingualife we also offer a second MT solution paired with extensive human post-editing in situations where higher quality is needed, but time and budget are limited.

Legal Subject Matter Experts

To deliver accurate legal translation services for our clients’ projects, we employ certified linguists with extensive subject matter expertise and a deep understanding of country-specific legal terminology.

They must be native to the target language and have at least 5 years of proven legal translation experience. In addition, the Lingualife Advisory Board (LAB) as well as the Board of Directors harbors senior lawyers with different specializations.
