Regina Landeck Presents:
An introduction to Legal Translation
This webinar is aimed at professional translators who are interested in exploring the field of legal translation.
We will look at the interlocking competencies of a legal translator and legal translation as a cultural issue. In addition, we will cast a cursory glance at the history and features of legal English and ask ourselves why we say these things in legal language. We will conclude with a discussion of legal communication and translation approaches.
