Professional Training

Legal translation can prove very complex. Legal translators are constantly confronted with the task of comparing different legal systems. They must know the legal system of the target language well enough to identify a legal institution with equivalent or approximately equivalent regulatory content in the target system.

For students and translators who wish to specialize in the legal field, I offer professional training courses in legal terminology. Classes are held in Italian or German. In each module, the Italian, German, and Swiss legal systems are compared. Each module also includes practical exercises to be discussed within the course.

The modules can also be booked separately.
