Legal Translations


Legal translations are among the most demanding type of translations. They not only require a high level of language proficiency, but also excellent knowledge of the relevant legal system and respective legal terminology, in order to be translated precisely into the target language. Such documents include contracts, general terms and conditions, terms and conditions of sale and delivery, shareholder resolutions, annual reports, audit reports, commercial register excerpts and statements of claim, judgments or court decisions.

Whether your clients have commissioned you to prepare a legal text, or the contracts and general terms and conditions of your company need to be translated, we shall be happy to take on your order and carry it out professionally and accurately in compliance with the guidelines of the Federal Association of Interpreters and Translators, BDÜ.

Prices for legal translations

We base our pricing policies for legal translations on the provisions of the German Judicial Remuneration and Compensation Act (sections 7-13 JVEG). In this context, the volume of the text contained in the document is decisive for calculating the price. It will be calculated by page, word or standard line, thus constituting the main part of the end price.
