Summary:The objective of this webinar is to learn how to handle the translation of official documents, contracts and certificates by means of carefully selected examples and thoroughly prepared training steps. The goal is to develop the expertise to submit a translation that is a TRUE TRANSLATION OF THE ORIGINAL pursuant to clearly outlined standards.
Description
By means of carefully selected examples and thoroughly prepared training steps, participants may familiarize with the translation of different types of official texts based mainly on legalese. The goal is to develop a certain level of expertise and reach the point where one will submit a translation that is a TRUE TRANSLATION OF THE ORIGINAL pursuant to clearly outlined standards.

The main objective of the webinar is to help participants deal with phrases, words or other items in the original document that are unclear, illegible, incorrect or typed wrongly and practice using notes and brackets as well as other tricks used by certified translators to render an accurate and faithful translation.

The webinar does not offer templates and solutions, but rather structured steps to acquire knowledge and skill based on practice and application of search engines and thorough research.

The webinar is based on authentic and original common legal documents in US and UK English whereby UK English is presented through official documents issued in different member states of the European Union.
