Legal Sep 6, 2007

I have only a narrow, local point of view, but from here there is always a big demand for legal documents. I do a lot of Mexican documents into English and US documents into Spanish. From what I see many colleagues also do a lot of legal documents one way or the other from different origins.

This also involves a specialization in countries since legal systems vary so much. For instance, although I do not have any great problems translating a Puerto Rican document into English, but don't even ask me to translate an English language document for Puerto Rico. The language used there has little similarity to that used in Mexico or other Latin American countries.

plus also business and technical

I'm guessing that these would be the top 3 anywhere
