Translators Law Dictionary

Translators Law Dictionary

This work presents the basic legal terminology used in the English language with equivalent terms from German, principally, and French secondarily: that is because the French term is often some cognate to English. The dictionary includes definitions in English for most, not all terms because sometimes a simple synonym suffices or the concept is obvious on sight to someone with at least the training of a paralegal. Latin and Italian terms are also occasionally represented as well. The Translator's Law Dictionary is useful to legal translators, comparative lawyers, and internationally active law firms as well as scholars of comparative and international law. While no multilingual law dictionary authored by one person in one lifetime could ever hope to be complete, this dictionary tries to present all the basics in current legal usage in the English language and equivalent concepts and terms from German and French. This dictionary has focused on the procedural and substantive facts of law, the indisipensable structural framework to any deeper discussion of the law. As well as the basics of law, this law has tried to present the essentials of commercial law: contracts, torts, corporations, and taxation. Obscure and ancient legal concepts and esoteric theoretical concepts are not discussed here, for such are rarely, if ever, used in practice. Rather, this works presents a well rounded, and reasonably complete exposition of the basic legal terminology of the world's greatest legal systems as part of the construction of the globalization of the rule of law. Thus, while practical and focused, the work also has some hopeful utility for visionaries, enabling jurists to anchor their concepts into new legal systems they will discover in the pages of this work.
