Polish legal translation
Only professional translators specialising in Polish legal translation should translate legal documents and scholarly writings. The legal system of the source text (ST) is structured in a way that suits that culture and this is reflected in the legal language; similarly, the target text (TT) is to be read by someone who is familiar with the other legal system (corresponding to the jurisdiction for which TT is prepared) and its language. Most forms of legal writing, and contracts in particular, seek to establish clearly defined rights and duties for certain individuals. It is essential to ensure precise correspondence of these rights and duties in the source text and in the translation.
Conceptual equivalence between the source and the target text is often not straight forward when dealing with two different languages and/or legal systems. It is common that exact equivalence does not exist. The skill and knowledge of the translator makes the difference between a deficient and a good translation. The translator must translate legal text that is clear and exact. For instance, many countries lack public jury “trial” processes. Instead, other judicial systems involve stages of evidence submittal, often in closed hearings, after which the court renders its verdict. In a situation such as this, a literal translation of the word “trial” might mislead the reader.
