Translating Legal Terms Based on Functional Equivalency
(L6703 - 3 Instructor-Led Units)
Legal interpretation and translation are not only about translating words
from one language to another but, in many cases, from one legal system to another.
Therefore, it is vital for court interpreters to be mindful of the legal concepts
behind the terms used.

This language-neutral workshop focuses on how to deal with the following:
1) Words that may have more than one translation. 
2) Words that don’t exactly match from target to source.
3) Ambiguous words, emphasizing legal transfer instead of mere linguistic transfer.
