Legal Translation Services – Family, Criminal & Immigration
At Welcome Translation Experts (WTE) we offer a full range of legal translation services for family law. Family law encompasses the following proceedings among others: divorce; civil partnership dissolution; parenting disputes; pre and post-marital agreements; along with inheritance act claims. Family law procedures can be complicated and upsetting for those involved; therefore, we hire professional and experienced linguists who are aware of the correct protocol for working in the legal translation services sector.
Legal translations related to family law may have a direct impact on individual lives. These complex documents are often needed as evidence, so accuracy and an understanding of legal jargon are essential to avoid confusion and unnecessary complications.
On the other hand, the challenge for a professional interpreter who is present in person, is to remain neutral and impartial no matter how emotional the situation becomes. WTE interpreters can support you in your desired location, from private homes to family courts. English to Polish is the most requested language combination for this sector. These are just some of the legal document translation services that we can assist with.
- Translating Final Care Plans
- Translation of Independent Social Worker Reports
- Psychological Report Translation
Translation agency for criminal law
Criminal proceedings may involve defendants, victims or witnesses who do not speak English well enough to sufficiently understand and participate in legal processes. As a leading translation agency for criminal law, our language services can help you to overcome language barriers and ensure proceedings run as smoothly as possible.
Most importantly, providing translation services or professional interpreter services where necessary ensures that each party involved is fully informed and therefore receives fair treatment. These are just some of the areas where a translation agency can help you: police interviews; prison visits; court appearances; witness testimonies; witness impact statements.
We are aware that no two criminal cases are ever the same; as proceedings unfold, your document translation or interpreting requirements may evolve and we aim to adapt accordingly. For instance, where multiple translations of the same text are carried out, individual translators may be asked to justify their vocabulary choices. We can facilitate this process by acting as an intermediary.
Immigration law translation services
Language services go hand in hand with immigration law. Since budgets are often constrained in the immigration sector, we aim to offer you a reliable and cost-effective service, building a long-term partnership to support you in your daily work. We provide immigration law translation services for a wide range of documents, including:
- Warrant Letters
- Identification Documents
- News Articles
- Birth Certificates, Marriage Certificates, Divorce Certificates
- Criminal records and Police certificates
Some examples of the areas where you may need our legal translation services are asylum claims; immigration applications; immigration appeals; citizenship applications; discretionary applications. In the immigration field, we are accustomed to working with a range of languages that are lesser known in the UK; for instance, one of our most requested languages for interpreting is Tigrinya, the official language of Eritrea.
