Legal and Business Translation Projects

This post is also available in: Fran├žais (French)

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 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.
