What Court-Certified Translators Do

A court-certified translation is one that meets the requirements of judicial council. For legal purposes foreign language documents must be translated in a certain way. Translators who have been certified by American courts often have passed exams that gauge their fluency in the language pair they work in. Some states do not administer tests so they only request translators to register with courts. Translators who complete the process and have been approved can offer certified translations for courts. They are familiar with the courts’ policies and translate documents, preparing the final version to adhere to those guidelines. They sign their declaration and attach it to the translation that is going to a court.

Before they start providing court-certified translation services they examine the document to make sure they are familiar with the subject matter. For example, if a medical document needs to go to court the court-certified translator will review the text to make sure translating the terminology is within his/her abilities. They will only take the task if they feel that they are fully comfortable translating the medical language. A medical document such as an autopsy report or hospital bill is often filled with technical terms such that only medical translators who specialize in the field can perform a satisfactory translation. Such translators understand the importance of the document they are asked to translate because the choice of words often make a difference in the outcome of the case.

U.S. colleges and universities as well as vocational institutions receive a number of applications from candidates who have completed their coursework in a non-English speaking country. When they speak with an international student advisor or counselor they learn that they need to submit the certified translation of their school transcripts. Some wonder why they cannot translate their own academic documents given that they speak English fluently. They question why they have to invest in academic document translation services when they speak the source and target languages very well. They want to know the difference between their own translation and a certified translation carried out by a professional translator. Schools and other entities that require certified translations would like the translation to be completed by a professional translation for quality assurance purposes.

Fluency in the Languages and Expertise in the Field

Companies in Los Angeles that are ready to serve individuals with translation needs often have a large database of translators with specific areas of specialty. They understand that the translator who performs the translation of each document must be fluent in the source/target languages and familiar with the discipline in hand. A translator whose focus in on technical translation, for instance, usually does not know the terminology related to medicine. Technical documents are typically about software or machinery and are filled with words that only professionals in the industry are familiar with. A translator who does not specialize in technical translation might not know the exact meaning of the terms. They might try to substitute similar words in the translation. However, translators who have extensive experience translating technical documents can effectively translate text pertaining to technical areas. Such a translator would not be a good fit for the translation of medical documents.

Medicine is very different from technology. Although the two fields overlap when we are discussing devices used in medical procedures. However, generally medical documents are very different from other types of documents. As a result, companies that receive medical documents from their clients should make sure that the translator who takes on the project has a strong background in medicine and pharmaceuticals. Such translators do not have to look up words or phrases. They are fully familiar with the content and can deliver translations that capture the true meaning of the original medical text. The language of the translated document will sound professional and medical.
