Professional legal translation and interpreting

Specialist translation and interpreting for the legal sector

Our professional linguists provide tailored legal translation and interpreting services for law firms, courts, police and legal departments. With years of specialist academic and professional training in the legal translation sector, our team will help you communicate accurately and precisely in any of our 130 languages.

Legal translation

Our expert translation team comprises specialist native-speaking legal translators spanning 35 countries. We support organisations across a range of legal situations, from small personal matters to international child abduction and business law cases across multiple jurisdictions. As it should be with legal translation work, our services are both highly accurate and completely confidential.

Legal interpreting

Hire a qualified and experienced legal interpreter to reassure and converse with your clients during a broad range of situations, including court proceedings and police interviews. Along with relevant academic qualifications, our highly professional legal interpreters are members of the Institute of Translation & Interpreting, Chartered Institute of Linguists or National Register of Public Sector Interpreters.

Legal transcription

Often as is the case in legal situations, audio recordings must first be converted into translatable text. Our native-speaking linguists will transcribe your audio so it can be professionally translated by our legal language services team. Our transcription services cover all legal proceedings, including interviews, police settings and court hearings.

Certified translation

As members of the Institute of Translation & Interpreting, we provide certified translations for official and legal use. Our certified translations cover an array of official circumstances, including Home Office immigration, birth and death registrations, and marriage certificates. Non-business customers needing legal certification should order online.
