Focusing on the problems of translating English legal language,
Alcaraz and Hughes offer a wide-ranging view of one of the most
demanding and vital areas of contemporary translation
practice. Individual chapters deal with legal English as a linguistic
system, special concepts in the translation of legal English, the
genres of legal translation, and offer a series of practical problems
together with discussions of proposed solutions, as well as insight
into the pragmatic ways translators go about finding solutions. The
numerous examples and discussions of specific terms make the book
useful both as a manual in the translation class and as an invaluable
reference work for students, teachers, self-learners and professional
