Our client, one of the leading law firms in the world with clients in every major international financial center, required multi-lingual translation expertise to support full legal translation from English into German for a large litigation matter. The client had previously employed word-centric translation approaches with alternative translation services but wanted to move beyond word-based translations and into context-based translations that viewed content through the lens of the laws of Germany and the United States. The client needed true legal translation expertise from a multi-lingual legal professional.
Hire Counsel Solution
Leveraging its extensive network of qualified multi-lingual legal professionals, Hire Counsel identified and presented multi-lingual candidates with fluency in both the German and English language and with an understanding and expertise of both German and United States law. Hire Counsel evaluated and selected an attorney candidate from a pool of qualified candidates and then engaged that candidate on the important translation project. The translation attorney was able to successfully complete the multi-lingual translation project on time and on budget with results previously unattainable using traditional word-centric translation approaches. In fact, the opposing party in the matter requested a copy of Hire Counsel candidate’s context based translation to replace their own text based translation. The true legal translation capability of Hire Counsel’s context-based translation method now sets the client’s standard for language translation project evaluation.

With the assistance of Hire Counsel, the client now uses a context-based approach to foreign language translation with translators schooled in both foreign languages and laws.
