Legal Translation Services

Choosing a local translation service with expertise in translation and interpreting will boost your success rate

Urgent deadlines and matters are our specialty

Our client portfolio is diverse and we are proud to support some of the most renowned brands in the world in their global operations.

From royal commissions to commercial agreements

Agreements, contracts, evidence, patents or other legal documents, and in court, we have been supporting law firms and government departments for 30 years. Specialist legal translation is vital. Legal work is all about the words, and the slightest error in translation can have terrible consequences.

A law firm set out on a worldwide search for a maritime law specialist Mandarin interpreter for a multi-million dollar case. The Federal Court judge involved directed them to Chin Communications’ Charles Qin. Since then, we have been involved in several large maritime cases providing Chinese translation and interpreting.

A Royal Commission suffered a setback when they discovered the Mandarin interpreter found on Google was based overseas and had little understanding of the Australian case and system, not to mention accent. The costs were rising by the hour until we secured a local, experienced interpreter.

Of course, these types of cases are not daily occurrences. Most of our work is commercial and our team is constantly translating affidavits, agreements, information memorandums, transcripts, and deeds. In addition, we handle interpreting in courts of all jurisdictions, from the High Court to magistrates’ courts and tribunals, and for client meetings, police interviews and agency investigations.

The best results will always come from local, Australian court interpreters.
