All translation and interpreting professionals agree that the fields of legal, judicial and sworn translation require specialised knowledge, a high degree of skills and a firm ethical commitment. Nevertheless, and despite the recent transposition of Directive 2010/64/EU to its legal system, Italy (like other countries) lacks regulations to adequately guarantee the training and professionalism of...

And in this case, the objective is not to position your website on your national search engin e, but rather on one where searches may be in a different language, the competition is different, etc. [...

Nowadays it is widely accepted that in 50 years China will be the greatest economic and military strength in the world. What is already clear is that China is the “world’s factory” and, although there may be doubts as to the quality of the products manufactured in China, it is a well-know fact that the majority of the big European and American brands manufacture in China.

The American continent as a whole is one of the most dynamic regions in the world and its economy grows on a par with its imports (+10% in 2017) and exports.

Many multinational companies, along with those that have an international strategy, include Portuguese as the language to be employed to access the markets of Portugal and Brazil. Both countries have significant linguistic and cultural differences, which have ultimately led to a reform of written Portuguese.

[TOC] Can I trust a translation that needs editing? When I first started out in the translation industry I remember how much mistrust it would generate in clients when I offered them the option of editing the translation.

Freelance translators enjoy an envious situation. We get to work at home or wherever we please (in our favorite pair of pajamas if we want) and, in many cases, get to pick a schedule that best suits us. However, regardless of whether we are freelancers or in-house employees, we still have to spend long hours sitting in front of our com­puter typing or editing thousands of words per day, endlessly...

PART I: The “Whys” It has been my experience that translators often rely excessively on bilingual legal dictionaries or linguistic approaches when faced with legal terminology with which they are unfamiliar or passages in legal documents that they do not readily understand. Research into the law itself is more time consuming, but almost always provides a much more accurate understanding of the...
