Legal Translation - what it is?
Legal document translation services are mainly legal translations of legal documents, contracts, and different agreements. This type of translation is used in law. Littera24 provides translations of legal statutes, marriage contracts, documents certificated by a notary, regulations, and other legal documents. Read more here – what is legal translation.
For example, legal issues, unlike the common lexis, require the translator to pay more attention to detail, form, and accuracy of special terms, therefore these translations are entrusted only to the most experienced translation professionals in this field.
Legal Document Translation: when is it necessary?
In most cases, this service is needed to translate:
- Contracts and agreements
- Agreements and inquiries
- Power of attorney and statutes
- Certificates and marriage contracts
- Documents for receiving an inheritance
Legislation varies considerably from country to country. Therefore, word-for-word processing is not useful when translating legal documents into English, French, German and other languages.
To translate fast and at the highest quality and to reflect the source in the final version, this must be done by a professional speaker.
Legal Translations of Private Documents - Examples
Littera24’s additional speciality is the professional translation of private documents – passports, notices, licenses, diplomas and letters. The most common service in this category is the translation of passports with a notarial certification. In addition, we offer a wide range of other services.
We would like you to note that we always comply with the optimal deadline of the order, regardless of the document to be translated in our office; you can always request an urgent translation, which we will endeavour to perform as soon as possible.

Importance of Accurate Legal Document Translation
Accurate legal document translation services are an important task, for the solution of which a linguist needs in-depth knowledge of the language, as well as an understanding of special legal terminology, legislation, and regulations. Errors and inaccuracies in such legal documents are not allowed.
Even a small mistake can cause the documents to be translated to become unusable for business matters. Translations of legal documentation are especially common in the corporate environment. This is especially true in international business.
However, these services are also used by individuals. For example, translations of credentials and private documents are in high demand. Often, together with the basic service, the legalization of documents is also required: a notarization or an apostille. You can order a “turnkey service” from our legal translation office.
Legal Translations with Native Speakers
Legal translation of documents is considered as translations with a high degree of complexity. Translations are performed by professionals whose native language is a relevant foreign language.
We suggest this service if you need legal translations of a highly-styled quality, for example, court document translation and some official documents.
