Legal Translation for Serving Chinese Defendants – A Tomedes Case Study

July 10, 2024

Our client

Company name: N. A. Legal Firms (Pseudonym)

What does the company do?

A law firm specializing in international litigation

Deadline set by the client: 2-3 days

What do they need?

Translation of legal documents from English to Simplified Chinese for N. A. Legal Firm's client to serve a Chinese defendant. They needed accurate translations of several legal documents, including summons, complaints, and civil cover sheets, to serve Chinese defendants involved in their cases.

The challenges

For this particular project, we encountered several challenges, which we will discuss in depth:

First, the stringent privacy laws in China posed a significant challenge, making it difficult to obtain accurate residential addresses for the defendants. These laws prohibit the public disclosure of personal information, complicating the process of serving legal documents.

Second, the complex terminology in legal documents requires precise translation to maintain their meaning and intent. Any inaccuracies could lead to misunderstandings and potentially impact the legal process.

Third, the strict deadlines inherent in legal proceedings meant that ensuring the timely completion and delivery of translations was crucial to avoid delays in serving the defendants and advancing the case.

We overcame these challenges due to several key factors. First, continuous dialogue with N. A. Legal Firm helped refine our approach and adapt strategies to acquire the required information lawfully and efficiently. Second, using translators with legal expertise and creating a comprehensive glossary to ensure accurate and consistent translations. Third, implementing a robust project management system to prioritize urgent tasks, coordinate team efforts, and ensure timely delivery.
