Legal Translation (Spanish/English)

10am to 1pm PDT, Dec. 9, 2023

The National Center for Interpretation is pleased to announce a webinar focused on boosting your skills as a Spanish/English translator!

Each Spanish-speaking nation has its own legal codes, and those different codes and legal concepts make the job of the legal translator particularly challenging. This webinar will present a method for successfully translating convoluted Spanish-language legal documents into smooth and precise English.

This online workshop includes:

  • Review and discussion of Spanish-English/English-Spanish translation skills
  • Emphasis on Spanish-English translation
  • Focus on the legal Spanish of Mexico, Venezuela and Colombia (the varieties most frequently encountered by translators in the U.S.)
  • Glossaries of difficult terms not found in legal dictionaries are provided

“At the time I was working on a tricky legal translation from Spanish > English and it was very helpful indeed.” — past participant
