Semiotica 2014; 201: 103 – 119 Deborah Cao Teaching and learning legal translation Abstract: Legal translation has been in great demand in the last decade around the world owing to globalization and increased contact and exchange between peoples and states. Naturally, there has been an increased need for legal transla- tors for various purposes, but there has been little research on legal translator training. It is a fact that translating law between any languages is not a straight- forward affair. It is commonly acknowledged that legal translation is complex

Semiotica 2014; 201: 207 – 221 Máirtin Mac Aodha Legal translation – an impossible task? Abstract: The specific nature of legal language and the specific challenges posed by legal translation have often led to a claim of untranslatability. In this article, the arguments advanced by both sides of the debate are examined. The difficul- ties that legal texts present are illustrated by an annotated translation of a judg- ment of the European Court of Human Rights. Keywords: Legal translation; commensurability; translatability; equivalence; legal lexicography DOI

Semiotica 2014; 201: 17 – 33 Le Cheng*, King-Kui Sin and Winnie Cheng Legal translation: A sociosemiotic approach Abstract: Quite different from translation for general purposes, transplanted legal discourse is often unmatchable to the target discourse community. In reality, exact equivalence could not be found in terms of translation in legal transplant, which means the major task of translation in legal transplant is to solve lacunae, discursive gaps between the source text and the target text. In legal translation, a lacuna seems to constitute a factor

Peter Sandrini 29 Legal translation Abstract: Legal translation has always been a field that, on the one hand, derives its importance from practical needs of people involved in globalized legal relations as well as in the judiciary system of multilingual societies and language minorities, and, on the other hand, stirs a special interest in translation studies because of the specific relation between language and law and, in recent studies, between culture and law.

Terminological equivalence in legal translation: A semiotic approach LE CHENG and KING KUI SIN Abstract Equivalence has been a critical issue in translation, as well as in legal trans- lation. Based on a literature review of the concept of equivalence and analysis of the features of legal discourses, the article adopts a semiotic approach to the translation of legal terms. By adapting some principal propositions in semiotics, the paper argues that total equivalence can be achieved via meta-lingual adjustment, because a sign is not born with mean- ing but invested

general sense, is one way of describing relatively stable patterns of legally oriented social behavior and attitudes.” The orientation of law studied as culture originated in the United States (e. g., Friedman 1969 ; Sarat 1977 ) and explains the particularities of a legal system as characteristic patterns of a national legal culture ( Pommer 2008 : 17). Now that law has culture-bound characteristics, when it comes to legal translation, cultural discrepancies are indispensable constituent for further examination in the process of transfer.
