Good Habits in Japanese-to-English Legal Translation: Legislation, Rules and Regulations (JATLAW)
This interactive workshop will explore how to develop good habits in translating Japanese legislation, rules and regulations. We will focus on habits that produce target text that is a) fluid - meaning that it reads like natural legal English and b) faithful - meaning that it reproduces the meaning and internal logic of the source text. These habits will also help translators who work on a wide range of other legal documents, including contracts, leases and licenses to produce better quality outputs, with greater confidence.
