Translated Document Bank
Welcome to the translated document bank. In order to maximize the use of resources of legal service organizations, this document bank provides a template of already translated documents that can be used across organizations.
In order to be posted, the document must meet the following criteria:
- Posted with an English version of the document,
- Translated by someone with translation experience (i.e. professional translator, qualified bilingual staff, translation firm, etc.), and
- Reviewed by at least one additional fluent (preferably native) speaker of the target language.
Additional Best Practices:
- Documents should be in plain English before they are translated into the target language.
- Translated documents should be sent to the client with an English version to assist client helpers (unless there are confidentiality issues).
- Any document that has been edited should be reviewed by a bilingual individual in the target language before being used.
