Human resources professionals such as directors of human resources and human resources coordinators in the United States often draft employee handbooks in the English language that they later get translated into foreign languages. The main purpose of translating these documents into other languages is to make the information accessible to employees who do not understand English or feel more comfortable reviewing important information in their native language. Employee manuals usually contain sections about compensation, accident reports, employee relations, employee status, dress code, hours of work, and safety.
Due to their legal nature, employee handbooks and manuals require the attention of highly-specialized legal translators. Such documents typically contain useful information about state and federal laws and specify the rights of the employees. Therefore, the translator has to be familiar with terminology related to labor laws to deliver an accurate translation of the text.
Human resources departments of companies in the United States are commonly responsible for preparing and distributing corporate policies and making sure all employees understand the content. They translate their handbooks and other HR related documents to foreign languages to make sure all team members understand the applicable laws, the company’s guidelines, and the employer’s expectations.

Certified translation of HR documents
: once they have prepared their literature, human resources professionals have to decide whether they need a certified or non-certified translation of the documents. If they believe that they might need to use the translations in court at some point in the future, then they need to get a certified translation completed by a court approved translator. If the employees try to file a lawsuit against the company in regards to their benefits during family leave or termination as a result of failing to fulfill the employer’s standards of conduct, the company will need to present a copy of its policies and standards in court. It will also need to submit the translation that the employees reviewed and signed to prove that the non-English speaking employees understood the terms and conditions. Otherwise, the employees can claim that they were not aware of the policies due to language barriers. However, if the company does not expect the documents to be used in court then it can get a non-certified translation.
