Legal advice on the translation’s subject matter

The translation of legal texts requires a solid knowledge of both the source and target language, and a proven experience in the legal field, a discipline mastered by lawyers, jurists who practise law in their day-to-day professional life.

Knowing the nuances and the precise definition of each legal concept and the position it occupies within the legal system is essential for the correct translation of legal texts, which faithfully conveys their true meaning in law.

This is a task that can best be carried out by a professional who is both an expert in law and in legal translation.

As a lawyer and legal translator, I can offer a faithful and accurate translation service, incorporating all the nuances, details, and technicalities inherent to the legal discipline, choosing the right words and the appropriate and precise legal equivalent so that the translated text makes complete sense from both a linguistic and legal point of view, with the maximum rigour inherent to the legal discipline.

At ESTEBAN GURDULICH Translations & Legal I offer the services of legal translation, legal translation+ and sworn translation.

It is a plus service that incorporates translation and legal advice services at the same time.
