Additional info:

Why is it better to place orders for legal, financial and economic translations with a translator specializing in legal, financial and economic subjects?
1) An “all-round craftsman” translator cannot understand the subject as deeply as a specialist; as a result there will inevitably be mistakes in translation (do you need mistakes in your translation?), and they will be slow in coming.
2) specialist-translator’s skills and knowledge are constantly developing:
a) as a result of daily work (translation of constitutional documents, financial statements, contracts, auditor’s opinions, business plans, tutorials, etc.);
b) by studying specialized financial and legal literature (when you read specialized literature you know what words are used because many words can be translated differently, and incorrect translations are sometimes given in dictionaries).
