Issues in Legal Translation: Challenges and Suggestions

Abdelkrim AOUL [3]

Abstract: Based on the common view that translation, even in the age of Machine Translation, remains as complex and intricate as different human language systems are, this article sets out to pinpoint the main issues and difficulties translators may encounter while carrying out legal translation. In addition to having to deal with linguistic, lexical, structural, and cultural instances of non - equivalence across languages, translators specialized in legal texts have also the burden of dealing with different legal systems. This means that legal translators have to deal with how the target language would "receive" the legal text without distorting its legal interpretation, its system - bound terminology, and its effect. Against that background, the article attempts to explore the different techniques that can be adopted to overcome these difficulties in the area of legal translation.

Keywords: Legal translation, Machine Translation, non - equivalence, legal systems, terminology, source language, target language
