Many thanks to everyone for your help/participation.
I wasnt really suggesting a translation option, my question was simply: " to translate (and if so, how?) or not to translate ? "
In my mind, I was hesitating between the two options that everyone else seems to be hesitating between also: to simply leave it as it is in English in the ST or to "translate" the titles.
Im finally voting for the "translate" option simply because i feel that in this case the meaning of "justice" may not be too obvious/clear to a French speaking audience . As one poster said, people could well take it for a first name or who knows what else !Because of this, I think it's better here to put "le Juge Moses et le juge Walker" .
I would also definitely leave the "Lord" in " (le juge) Lord Rose " and, of course, leave out the "Mister" in FR...
Still, I wish I could select both answers as i think both solutions would probably be considered "acceptable".
I recall doing a text in school (University really) with "Law Lord John Smith" in it. I checked around the net for various newspaper articles etc. and mostly found it simply given in English..However the teacher said "no! Wrong !". It was supposed to be "le Lord juriste John Smith". As always in these cases there seems to be no "general rule"- or it's hard to find out what that is- as one person will swear that one way is the ONLY right way to do it while someone else will swear the exact opposite!
Thanks to everyone for your help, it was certainly appreciated! :)
