Here is a list of the legal and business translation projects done to date. Most of these are translations from French to English except the adoption ruling.
Legal and Business translation is one area where I receive quite a bit of work. It was not one of my original specialities but a skill acquired over time.
As with most new domains, I create a vocabulary list in my
translation database and investigate any unknown terms. Internet is of course a great source of information for translation. Translation Sources
Sometimes you can find the translation in example phrases as on
Linguee. On occasions, I used the translation glossary search on proz.com. At other times, words can be in my existing translation terms database or previously learned.
For technical words, there are a few good sites notably
Le Grand Dictionnaire Terminologique from the Quebec Government and Techdico.
For more common words, I use online dictionaries such as
Word Reference, which also has associated discussion and Reverso. Manual and MT Translation
This is all useful when doing a manual translation. GT4T using the DeepL machine translation engine is particularly useful for automated translation where the text is mainly prose. Automated translation can also be useful in some technical content.
Once a translation completed, I generally proofread with
Antidote. I also tend to play a translation back to myself using Microsoft Azure Speech Engine for Trados provided by TTS. Legal and Business Translation projects
