Legal and Judicial Documents

Legal and judicial translations require absolute precision, detailed knowledge and years of experience. Legal documents tend to be long and hard to understand. Each legal word has its own meaning and connotation which sometimes cannot be substituted with any other word. Mistranslation of contracts and other legal documents can not only cause confusion between the parties concerned but may also result in huge economic losses.

Samurai Translators provides expert and professional legal and judicial translations

Our strengths lie in our:

Our in-house translators are well versed in civil law, company law and various other laws and have access to all our resources built up over our years in the translation business which allows them to work swiftly through your translation. Unlike some other translation companies which need to outsource translations of legal documents to outside translators, we are able to efficiently carry out your translations within the company and thus exceed them in mobility and speed.
At Samurai translators, the first draft of our manuscripts are translated and proofread by translators with years of experience and a wealth of knowledge in the law for a clear, accurate, precise and consistent translation. After the first draft has been proof-read by our in-house translation team, depending on the delivery period and budget allocated, we may also forward them onto outside specialists contracted by us to perform a final proofread of the document to confirm technical terms according to your wishes. We also build glossaries specific to each client using advanced computer-assisted translation (CAT) software to ensure words and phrases are always translated consistently within each document and from one project to the next. On a big project, we form a team of translators, proofreaders and specialist proofreaders in order to boost both the speed and quality of our service.
Our policy is to provide translation services at the lowest price in the industry. We handle a great deal of legal documents and have accumulated a vast database of past translations to work from which greatly increases our cost performance. We challenge the prices of any translation company claiming they can beat us on price and match us on quality and efficiency. <Price List>
We understand the need for confidentiality when it comes to legal documents. We work under the principle that the first draft of the translation and proofreading are conducted within the company by our own translation team who are under the obligation of confidentiality. Final confirmation of technical terms, etc. is conducted by a tight team of legal specialists who have signed confidentiality agreements with us to prevent any leaking of confidential information.
