A comprehensive study of legal translation, this volume is an interdisciplinary work in law and translation theory. The main focus of the book is upon the translation of texts which are authoritative sources of the law; examples are cited primarily from statutes, codes and constitutions (Canada, Switzerland and Belgium), as well as instruments of the European Union and international treaties and conventions.;Dealing with theoretical as well as practical aspects of the subject matter, the author analyzes legal translation as an act of communication in the mechanism of law, making it necessary to redefine the goal of legal translation.
