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.

Dear Jasmina,

I am interested in the three courses you offer, but I translate from English to Spanish, so I would like to ask you the following questions:
Which language combination do you use in the example documents?
And I also would like to know if the course would be useful to me anyway, even if it is not in the combination I translate?

Thank you very much
Best wishes
Eliana S.

Thank you for your interest in the course.

However, the courses have been organized in such a way that speakers of other languages can benefit from the examples as well. Reactions from speakers of other languages have been positive and they all stated they found the examples useful. Therefore, I believe the courses would be useful for

Dear Eliana,

Thank you for your interest in the course.

The languages that I used in the example documents are English, German and Serbian because those are the languages I work with.

Reactions from speakers of other languages have been positive and they all stated they found the examples useful. Therefore, I believe the courses would be useful for you as well.

I hope I have managed to answer your question. Please feel free to contact me if you have further questions.

Kind regards,
Jasmina
