What You Should Know About Legal Translating Services

Posted by Tony Phillips on Oct 21, 2014 1:42:45 PM


I am a competent writer. I write essays, blog posts, business plans, short stories, grocery lists, you name it. I can write just about anything — anything except a legal brief, that is. I have not and will not ever try my hand at that particular craft. Legal writing is to all other writing as string theory is to all other science: a vaguely recognizable genre, but not in any sensible way.

Language Translation Services and Japanese Law

Posted by Tony Phillips on Oct 20, 2014 10:04:22 AM


Like virtually everywhere in the modern world, the law in Japan is now largely an online enterprise. At first glance, language translation services might seem unnecessary for firms working with Japanese clients because nearly the entire Japanese legal code is available online at the government’s Japanese Law Translation website. The site provides more-or-less acceptable English text describing the specific laws forming the body of a still evolving legal system.

Having that text online is handy, but it doesn’t quite take the place of the old, familiar, thousand-page volumes of dense type that lined lawyers' shelves in times past. After all, the law is like war – sometimes it’s helpful to have something heavy to throw at your opponent.

Legal Interpreting and Translating Services: Two Very Different Things

Posted by Tony Phillips on Oct 17, 2014 1:18:00 PM


Speaking is different than writing, listening is different than reading, and interpreting is different than translating. In common vernacular, we use the terms interchangeably. We ask our bilingual friends and colleagues to ‘translate’ for us, but what we usually want is for them to ‘interpret’ what a speaker is telling us. The spoken word is interpreted. The written word is translated. These are not the same or even very similar tasks. They require different skills, different processes, and different inclinations.

It’s true that probably any bilingual person can satisfactorily interpret for you if you’re placing a dinner order. That same bilingual person can most likely do a decent enough job translating the menu as well. But in a courtroom or a conference room, where speaking is fast-paced, intense, and riddled with high-flown jargon, the ordinary bilingual person won’t suffice. That’s why court interpreters are in such high demand in our multilingual word.
