Sworn and legal translation
Legal translation is a complex field of specialisation and projects should not be entrusted to anyone but experienced, knowledgeable and trustworthy professionals.
The Law is such a vast field that a person could not possibly master all areas, let alone all areas in two different legal systems. Nobody is an expert in everything, so beware of overconfident translators who claim they can handle all types of legal documents.
Overpromising and under-delivering are common in the low-end translation market, so resist the temptation to go for the cheapest provider. Instead, choose a professional who puts as much care in their translations as you do in your work.

Legal translation is a notoriously challenging specialisation. Translators navigate not only between languages but also between legal systems, which may be very different, and which are always evolving; this requires ongoing CPD from the translator to keep up with the...
