Legal matters travel quickly. If it is for official court purposes, then the benefit of a human translator is definitely preferred. However, for a mountain of legal documents that need to be reviewed quickly and won’t go any further than the office, machine translation is worth considering.
An important legal process in which documentation requires professional translation services is a registry of a patent. Patents might require translation depending on the case and the location in which you are going to file a request for registry of a patent.
The cost of providing legal translation services and legal interpretation is small compared to the damage done to a company’s reputation because of a harmful work environment. Make sure all your employees know exactly what to do to protect themselves and help maintain a safe workplace.
