Webinar on legal translation/Webinar zu juristischer Übersetzung

eCPD is a company formed this year to provide webinars for translators.

That means an internet seminar for continuous professional development (which the ITI is propagating) that you can follow on your own computer. If you miss the date but have registered, you can hear it online later.

They have a webinar on specializing in legal translation on October 28. The ‘speaker’ (?) is Ricardo Martinez, of the City University of London, who will be giving examples on English and into French and Spanish.

Register here.

This webinar will provide the audience with an overview of the field of legal translation, focusing on the following aspects:
• Why legal translation as a specialisation?
• How to get into the legal translation field
• Disparity between Anglo-American Law / Continental Law
• Types of documents usually translated and some basic vocabulary (examples translated into French and Spanish)
• Main features of legal English
• Some practical problems in legal translation
Practical advice for the budding legal translator.

  1. > The ‘speaker’ (?)

    I understand that he is going to speak and present slides – at least this is how the webinars worked where I took part. Participants have the option to type questions either during the presentation or in the Q&A session. If you are unable to do the webinar on the scheduled day/time, you will be provided with a link and can listen/read the presentation in your own time. You should get the slides to download after the webinar. Best wishes, Jana
