Legal Translation Services
Accelerate your discovery phase, manage more visa applications faster during cap season and get more done quicker with our specialized legal translation services. Since our founding as a patent translation company in 1936, BURG Translations has assisted law firms with their international civil and corporate cases with precise, on-time legal translations, and additional value-added services such as foreign language document review, certified translation of immigration documents, academic document validation, interpreting for legal depositions, arbitration and court, video transcription, online secondary research to help find what you’re looking for, enhanced machine translation for high volumes of foreign language documents, and summarization to succinctly understand high volumes of foreign language documents.
Deadlines are critical in the legal industry since a delay might render the document null and void, particularly in court. Moreover, confidentiality is also an important issue, because almost all legal documents contain sensitive data. Our ISO 9001:2008 process requires that we respond to your request within 60 minutes and our team meets the tight deadlines required by lawyers regularly.
ONE POINT OF CONTACT
With BURG you have a dedicated contact that personally manages the entire team, including any integrated services, and reviews your final deliverables to ensure high quality and satisfaction. We take great care in nurturing our relationships. The quality of our service is also measured by our ISO process. The seasoned staff at BURG knows what approach and methodology are best for complex projects, and because BURG employs the latest technology in the industry, we are able to meet your needs efficiently and cost-effectively.
At the core of quality is accuracy. We start by hiring the best. Our recruitment standards are more rigorous than the EN 15038:2006. Below are our requirements:
- Native speaker of the target language with near-native knowledge of the source language
- Minimum of one college degree
- At least 5 years’ experience as a full-time dedicated translator or editor
- High proficiency and proven expertise and experience in specialized fields of translation
- Success at our proprietary industry-specific translation-skills, technology and customer service tests
To us, our translators are more than just translators; they are close colleagues with whom we have been working daily for years – in some cases, for decades.
We are a medium-sized company. Most members of our team carry specialized skills with different types of expertise, allowing us to handle a broad range of projects to meet your needs. The average experience of a team member is over 11 years.
In our industry, technology dictates our ability to perform four functions to various file types: receive, analyze, manage and translate. Between our integrated workflow system and various translation memory programs, we have the ability to efficiently handle thousands of projects per year, and deliver them on time and ready for presentation.
To consistently meet the high accuracy standards of your industry, our process is a specially designed risk management approach that minimizes the probability of a translation error reaching the final version of your deliverable. We capitalize on the synergy created by the sequential use of four key components: our translator, independent editor, translation memory and trained reviewer. With each component, and our ISO 9001:2008 and EN15038:2006 corrective and preventative actions (CAPA) procedures, the probability of unnoticed errors diminishes with each project. Not all ISO processes are the same. With over five years of certification, our quality-control system has over 100 pages in documentation and is a proven process.
