Lawyer Turned Translators

Translated documents from Waterstone Translations are critically scrutinized. Our translators are not only certified professionals with more than 10 years of experience in the field, but many of them also have extensive experience practicing the law in their home countries.

This is an advantage over our competitors since our lawyer-turned-translators do not only have an in-depth understanding in the matters of law and how it applies to its local jurisdiction, but they also have the skills of a translator to combine the best of both worlds. The result? A perfectly written legal document translation that reads like an original.

Qualifications And Screening Process

Legal document translation is a specialized skill and one which requires the utmost accuracy. A small error can leave a significant negative impact and a potential financial consequence. We have therefore developed a systematic screening process which ensures that we only recruit highly skilled translators that add value to our legal translation services. To be a member of our legal document translation team, each translator will have passed our rigorous testing and must be certified by one or more of the following internationally recognized organizations:

  • American Translators Association (ATA)
  • National Association of Judiciary Interpreters and Translators (NAJIT)
  • Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI)

Armed with legal know-how and translation finesse, we have carved a reputation for exceptional quality and authenticity in the industry. You may be interested to learn more about our professional document translation services.

We have been working with Dentons over many years providing legal translation services to many of their clients.
