Hi all,

in this second semester at the University I am teaching translation of Spanish business letters, legal texts, etc. into English.

I was just wondering if anyone knew of a web based resource with downloadable examples of such texts. (Basic texts - nothing too difficult for beginners).

I have spent the afternoon on Google and have found some stuff, but nothing brilliant. Maybe someone on Proz knows a great link to some good modern examples and can stop me reinventing the wheel.

In fact such links might also be useful for anyone here who is new to the profession. They would be able to see model texts which might just contain the phrases they were looking for.

Thanks in advance for your help,

Some ideas, but no concret e answers Mar 1, 2003

Hi Berni

I would be interested in any replies you receive but I have often searched for legal stuff, especially models, and found nothing, altho\' there are glossaries and such, so if I find anything I think might be useful, I will let you have it.

As foir business letters, one place is in the Oxford Sp-En, perhaps also in the Collins, they have some standard letter formats, altho\' don\'t know if they are exactly what you are looking for.

I also have access to a brilliant library this year, so will check to see if there are any useful resources in the area (I had this task pending anyway..)

Another possibility is to investigate corpora, electronic databases of material, as of yet I haven\'t been working with any Spanish ones, but I do believe there is an EU multilingual database...
