Contract Law for Translators – Course in London

Anyone interested in specialising in legal translation or translating contracts and has German and English as their working languages (either direction) might be interested in the following two-day course by Delaneytranslations Ltd. to be held in London on 19 and 20 July 2014:

Contract Law for Translators, 19/20 July 2014 – German – English, English – German


Contracts are the legal documents most frequently encountered by translators. This seminar provides an overview over the English legal framework governing contract law, enabling participants not simply to recognise some standard phrases used, but also to understand the underlying logic of contracts.


The seminar will take the format of lectures on English contract law in the morning, followed by a lunch break and practical workshops in the afternoon.

The workshops will be bi-directional; while this will be unusual for most translators who might only translate in one direction professionally, it is a useful training exercise.

The following will be covered amongst others:

  • Employment contracts
  • Contracts of sale
  • Confidentiality Agreements
  • Agency Agreements
