Legal terms are often confusing enough for the layman to understand, but when a contract or other legal document needs to be translated between two languages, things can quickly become confusing even for the most experienced interpreters of the law.
Legal terminology is infamous for its double meanings. Consider the following terms, what they actually mean, and what it sounds like they mean to the average person:
|assault||threatening someone with violence||battery|
|battery||unlawful physical acting upon a threat||assault|
|robbery||theft committed by using physical force against a victim||burglary|
|burglary||theft committed when breaking into a residence, business, or other facility||robbery|
While these terms may seem obvious to those who work in a legal field, they are commonly misunderstood by most others. This is why it is very important to find a translator with experience in legal terminology translaton, who knows the nuances between legal terms, to ensure that you can accurately convey your message to a client, judge, or jury who may not speak the same language.Free Quote
