Translating Law, Hardback Book

Translating Law Hardback

Part of the Topics in Translation series



The translation of law has played an integral part in the interaction among nations in history and is playing a greater role in our increasingly interconnected world today.

The book investigates legal translation in its many facets as an intellectual pursuit and a profession.

It examines legal translation from an interdisciplinary perspective, covering theoretical and practical grounds and linguistic as well as legal issues.

It analyses legal translation competence and various types of legal texts including contracts, statutes and multilateral legal instruments, presents a comparative analysis of the Common Law and the Civil Law and examines the case law from Canada, Hong Kong and the European Court of Justice.

It attempts to demonstrate that translating law is a complex act that can enrich law, culture and human experience as a whole.
