Legal Translations


Translating legal documents, such as general terms and conditions, contracts, petitions, applications or statutes, requires precision. There is no room for interpretation in legal translation for these types of documents – the translation must form a comprehensive document in its entirety. Also, the legal system that applies to the text must be taken into account. Is civil law concerned or rather common law? In other words, will Dutch law apply to the translation, English or American law, or perhaps even another law?

We think along with you

The translators and editors at Tupelo Translations are well-versed in the various legal systems and know which registers and sources to consult. In fact, we’ll even let you know when we suspect that a definition or a sentence in the original text isn’t quite right and provide you with suggestions to improve it.

We don’t only translate for you, we go the extra mile.

    “Marooned in a foreign country after the airline refused to fly me home because I lost my passport, I was helped by Tupelo Translations that provided an excellent and accurate translation of my Dutch residence permit as part of my struggle to get a replacement. In addition, Bianca’s words of encouragement helped keep my spirits up and her extra online assistance helped me try to circumvent recalcitrant foreign postal systems. Now I anchor in hope.”

She explained to me what steps I had to take in order to obtain the legalisation stamps needed on the certified translation, which she then obtained for me.
