Estou a iniciar traduções de conteúdo jurídico (de Português para Inglês), e tenho algumas dúvidas:

- O nome das ruas tem que ser traduzido?
- O termo "Código Penal" é traduzido?
- Como abreviam "artigo, ou seja artº). É da mesma forma? e conta como palavra?

Se alguém me puder ajudar, agradecia!!

Regards,

Helga

- O nome das ruas tem que ser traduzido? Não deve ser traduzido.
- O termo "Código Penal" é traduzido? Sim: Penal Code
- Como abreviam "artigo, ou seja artº). art. Conta como palavra? sim

Domina a terminologia jurídica na língua de chegada?

why into English? Nov 8, 2017

Hi Helga,

These seem pretty basic questions - it may be a good idea to do some background reading or (better still) to follow a few courses before trying to set yourself up as a professional translator. I assume you have a background in a legal profession, but if, as you state in your profile, Portuguese is your native language, would it not be better to translate into Portuguese, rather than into English? Translation into your native language almost always results in better, more natural translations.

That said, my thoughts on your questions (please note I do not work in the legal field):
- Street names should never be translated. A letter sent to a translated address may never arrive, as the translated street name does not exist in that particular city.
- 'Código Penal' should usually be translated, I would think (this may depend on the text, but an obvious term for this exists in English - Penal Code).
- As far as I know, "Article" is usually abbreviated as "Art." in English.
