why italian legal documents translation must be accurate

Why your Italian legal documents must be accurate in their meaning

Each legal document you hand over within Italy’s jurisdiction can comprise many different terms and clauses – all of which need to be interpreted exactly as intended. Otherwise, you risk hitting a legal snag that could cost you vast amounts of money – and, in the long run, your business reputation.

Fortunately, our team includes skilled and dedicated professionals capable of translating the text of legal documents in a manner that keeps its precise meaning intact. We can drastically reduce the probability that your Italian legal papers will be interpreted differently to their English counterparts.

We can keep pace with our clients’ legal requirements

Although we offer a comprehensive range of language translation services across a broad spectrum of industries, we are especially valued for our services in translating legal documents between languages.

This is because, more than our clients in such sectors as finance, healthcare and marketing, the law firms in our client base are heavily involved in multijurisdictional cases, and lots of cases require multilingual capability too like this case study about meeting a tight deadline for an international law firm. Hence, these firms’ lawyers often have requirements to translate legal documents for court or arbitration proceedings on an urgent turnaround basis.

When we are tasked with legal translation for an Italy business venture, we fall back on an ISO-certified multi-step translation process.

We provide two options for those seeking Italian legal translation from us. One is a 100% human-focused process of translation, editing and proofreading. On the other hand, we also have a tech-based machine translation service available, in case the client wishes to choose this option – for example, in case of time constraints.

While machine translation plays a major part in many translations we undertake, we also trust skilled and experienced human translators with the editing and proofreading of text.

This dedication to ensuring a successful result with our translation work helps to explain, why, at LingArch, we have attained an impressive rate of 99% in client satisfaction. We can act even at short notice, providing an initial cost estimate within just a few minutes of the client’s request.

Our team includes linguistic and legal specialists who can be reached on a 24/7/365 basis – as can prove especially convenient when you are chasing tight deadlines, to which our translators are fully accustomed.

Challenges of translating Italian legal documents

Different legal systems

In the world today, there are 5 main legal systems in use: Civil law, customary law, common law, religious law, and the mixed legal system. Since Italy is a parliamentary republic, it follows the civil law system. This may differ, however, from other parts of the world that follow different legal systems. As a result, a professional legal translator must be able to take these differences into account while translating between Italian and other languages.

Terminology differences

The Italian legal system contains several terms that are unique and different from other parts of the world. For instance, terms such as Codice Civile (C.C.), Codice de Procedura Civile (C.P.C.), and Codice Penale (C.P.) all have distinct meanings, which makes translating them into English rather tricky. This is especially the case if we are translating between 2 different legal systems. Therefore, a professional legal translation between Italian and other languages must account for these differences.

Cultural differences

In both the United Kingdom and Italy, for instance, the word “Legge” refers to a body of law. However, this phrase cannot be used in the British translation of an Italian legal document since it might lead to cultural misunderstanding. The Italian word for lawyer is “avocatto,” yet in the British legal system, the terms “attorney,” “barrister,” “solicitor,” and “advocate” all have distinct meanings and roles.

What are some important guidelines in Italian translation?

1. Terminology is sensitive

All the phrases and terms in the legal documents you submit in Italy need to be construed strictly according to their original intent. A legal problem could set you back a lot of money and harm your business image in the long term if you do not take precautions.

2. Research makes perfect

You may often run into difficulty trying to translate a certain legal matter or concept. This, however, can best be resolved through vigorous research of the legal system. Research can broaden your understanding and help you think more scientifically about the problem at hand.

3. Be cautious with Machine translation

Machine translation has proven especially useful in terms of speeding up the process and boosting efficiency. Nonetheless, chances are it will never be able to take the place of professional human translators who are well-trained and experienced in the field.
