Legal translation is a kind of practical translation, which belongs to solemn text and involves knowledge in many fields. What are the characteristics of legal translation?
First of all, legal translation needs to be accurate and correct, which is necessary. It is not only for legal translation, but also for other fields. In order to maintain the stability of legal terms and the consistency of concept expression, the legal and judicial circles in Britain and the United States often adhere to the principle of consistency. As a result, they not only retain the common expression of legal English And it is obviously different from other industry terms.
Secondly, the law is very solemn and can not be blasphemed. The solemnity of legal language is mainly reflected in the special features of legal vocabulary, which is reflected in the following aspects: (1) general vocabulary with legal professional meaning; (2) specific legal professional terms; (3) the use of ancient English words; (4) the vast majority of loanwords are derived from French and Latin. (5) Vague words
Third, legal translation is also very complicated. Complex noun structure and frequent use of passive sentences are the syntactic characteristics of legal English. The use of compound conditional adverbial clauses and high frequency prepositional phrases increase the difficulty of understanding legal language.
Finally, since the law has played a certain restrictive role, it is necessary to have normative. China and the United States belong to different legal systems and have different legal systems. Therefore, when we study legal English, we should not only understand the common forms of judicial documents, but also learn to draft such documents.
