Title: Translating Legal Terms in Context
Author: Lopez, Antoinette Sedillo
Subject: Dictionaries
Legal Dictionaries
Bilingual Dictionaries
Spanish/English Dictionaries
Spanish Legal Terms
Abstract: This article reviews a number of Spanish/English legal dictionaries, evaluating the relative merits and features of each. Translating legal terms requires an understanding of both the legal context in which the term is used and the legal context in which the translation is intended. Thus, this review of legal dictionaries concentrates on evaluating the authors'/editors' understanding of how the terms are used in the two legal cultures, as well as in two different languages.
