Do you need help with the translation of Australian legal documents into French?

I translate family law and business law documents, wills and powers of attorney, as well as some court documents into French for legal practitioners, small businesses and individuals. NAATI-certification when needed.

I have studied English-to-French legal translation to first answer my questions as a French native translator living in Australia. I was struggling to understand the differences between the French and Australian legal systems.

And, as a translator, I was wondering about the concepts and the terminology. Hence my interest for this topic and the never-ending learning journey.

Translation of Australian legal documents into French:

    • Family Law documents, e.g. Parenting Order, Divorce Order, Consent Orders
    • Deeds, e.g. Power of Attorney, Last Will and Testament (and Probate), Affidavit
    • Some Court documents, e.g. Writ of Summons, Statement of Claim
    • Contracts, including Sale of Goods, Supply Agreement, Employee Agreement, License Agreement
    • Confidentiality Letter, Privacy Policy
    • General Terms and Conditions, User Terms and Conditions, User Agreement
    • Business Law documents, e.g. Articles of Association or Legal Constitution, Minutes, General Meeting Report

If your document is not listed, please email it to me and I’ll let you know what I can do.

Qualifications, experience, and quality assurance processes are my building blocks to deliver professional French translations of Australian legal documents.

To make it fit for purpose, I take into account who is going to read the translation and in which context it is going to be used.

Translations for information English <> French

I also offer translations for information, from English into French, and from French into English. This type of translation is not certified. It is useful when the focus is on the content, and when the form is not so important.

Credentials

I have studied English-to-French legal translation formally.

I am also a NAATI-certified professional translator and a member of AUSIT (the Australian Institute of Interpreters and Translators).

Who is the translation for?

  • Is it for the judiciary?  For a notary, a bank? The translation will then mirror the layout of the source document, and may need to be NAATI-certified.
  • Or is it for website users, customers, partners, legal practitioners?

How is it going to be used?

  • Is it part of a court case?
  • Before or during negotiation?
  • During dispute resolution?
  • Or is it going to be published on a website?

Does it need to be NAATI-certified?

If that’s the case, please mention it when you send me the document to be translated. The layout of the translation will roughly mirror the source document. More information on the page on Certified Translations.

Time frame?

When do you need your translation for? For a specific date or event? Let me know. Otherwise, what would be your ideal time frame?

Confidentiality

As a member of AUSIT, I am bound by the principle of confidentiality, regardless of whether I undertake the translation or not. You can rest assured that your documents will remain confidential. You can also read my Privacy Policy here.

Your work was excellent, fast, and you are a pleasure to work with.
