Trainings

Sometimes translating juridical documents can be tough. Legal translator are always confronted with many aspects of the comparative law. They must know good enough the legal system of their target language in order to determine if in the target language there is an equivalent or semi-equivalent legal institution which can be applied to their translation.

For students, prospective legal translators or lateral entrants we offer trainings in Legal Language and Terminology. The lessons are held in Italian or German. In each module we compare the Italian, the German and the Swiss legal system. At the end of each course we provide some exercises; the solutions are always discussed during the following module.
