Governmental translations

Governmental translations

The field of translation has changed in past decade. Where once the best practice was to do a back-to-English translation, today promising practices emphasize a conceptual translation to ensure that messages are culturally and linguistically appropriate.

Accurate translation, cost effectiveness and consistency are a priority for both federal government agencies that communicate worldwide, as well as local government offices that want to reach speakers of other languages. A single government project may involve language combinations and software programs that require a multitude of technical skills.

What Consist of Governmental Translation?

Translation and interpreting play an important role for Governmental purposes such as international politics and political relations. Governmental translations cover a wide range of genres, from documents for parliamentary hearings to weekly bulletins.

There may be specific requirements for each type of document and translators have to use databases, glossaries, previous documents, etc.

Choosing the right translator for Legal or Governmental Documents

The translators level of qualification, specialization, standard of general education, and relevant experience should be appropriate to the complexity of the text and the specialist nature of the text

The translator can ideally be certified by American Translators Association (ATA) which has a translation certification exam, Code of Ethics and disciplinary power over its members. If it is a language for which there are no certified translators, it is advisable to find someone who is an ATA member.

In general, the best result is obtained if the chosen translators native language is the target language (the language that the material will be translated into).
