Network of translators

Network of translators experienced in legal translations

Our experts in legal translations do not limit themselves to translating faithfully, using the correct legal jargon; when they translate, they carry out comparative law research, so that the final text is congruent with the legislation to which it complies. Furthermore, for our forensic linguists, knowledge of the jargon of Law is combined with the specialization of each individual document: International Law, Civil Law, Criminal Law, Corporate Law, Tax and Accounting Law, Insurance Law.

Our team dedicated to legal translation provides services modulated with respect to every type of need: sworn translations, apostilled translations, certified translations, legalized translations (documents for international tenders, notarial documents, judgments, personal documents and certificates in general).

Comparison and updating of contracts and regulations

We work in close contact with the lawyers of the chambers of commerce of different Italian regions for the comparison and consequent updating of legal documentation, such as, for example, the arbitration regulations and any annexes (tariffs, declarations of independence, etc.). For this type of project, with our customers we undertake, through the stipulation of an ad hoc contract of entrustment, to scrupulously comply with the following essential indications:

  • comparison of two texts in the same language (the one repealed and the one currently in force) and identification of the amended parts; translation of the amended parts;
  • maintaining consistency of the translations with respect to the official text of the Regulations (+ attachments) of the original translations;
  • use of a color code of the translations made on the changed parts for their rapid identification;
  • delivery of a complete translated text that corresponds to the original text currently in force.
Contratti e regolamenti
Circular translations

Circular translations for national regulations (Workers' Statute, Jobs Act, etc.)

Our agency specialized in legal translations follows the evolution of each regulatory system, updating and regulating its legal translators with respect to the new provisions of the Italian Decree Law (DL). For the amendments of important documents such as the Workers' Statute, respectively to the Reports on dismissals and to the New regulations of the Job Act, our legal team realizes the translation of a vast series of circulars that represent an exemplary memorandum of the renewed mandatory obligations of corporations in regard to the hiring of staff.

Our legal professional translation services comply with current national legislation on dismissals according to Legislative Decree no. 23 of 4 March 2015 laying down provisions on employment contracts of indefinite duration, in implementation of Law no. 183 of 10 December 2014 (the so-called Jobs Act).

Translations of notarial documents

Agenzia Traduzione-IN works with notary offices in the activities of public officials who require solid linguistic consultancy. We are able to distinguish the function of notaries in France and Italy and recognize the substantial differences present in British legislation (Common Law) and in Roman-Germanic law (Civil Law) also with respect to this legal figure. We know how to translate concepts that for Anglo-Saxon countries are non-existent, such as the function of adaptation (exercised by notaries) - between the parties and the law, and the task of notaries to modify the will of a third party in accordance with the law.

Certified translations are required when the version in another language of a document must be made official by means of a declaration of conformity of the translated text and authentication stamp.

Certified legal translations

Non-disclosure in the processing of confidential data and information (NdA)

We ensure that any data or reference contained in the legal documents we receive during the listing or carrying out of the translations is treated with the utmost confidentiality.

We enter into ad hoc Non-Disclosure Agreements if clients request it, when viewing a document during the budgeting phase or for its translation.
