Case study: Legal Translation

Sworn translation of 130 pages of Albanian court judgements in ten days

The client:

A top-ten law firm in the Amsterdam Financial Mile.

The assignment:

Translate 130 pages of court judgements from Albanian to Dutch.

The challenge:

A fixed deadline of ten days due to the schedule of the case in question. It also had to be a sworn translation that complied with the Sworn Court Interpreters and Translators Act. The source documents were badly scanned PDFs, which made it impossible to use translation technology to recognise and automatically translate any repetition or partial matches. This meant we had to do it manually, just like in the good old days!

The solution:

To meet the deadline, AVB assembled a team of specialist sworn legal translators in the language combination Albanian to Dutch. All of the translations were proofread by a single translator and the proofread translations were then certified. This huge administrative process was managed at the AVB head office by a single project manager specialising in sworn translations. The translation was delivered to our client within the specified time frame.

“Thankfully, AVB Translations has decades of experience with complex sworn-translation projects. Our experience was invaluable during this extremely challenging project. The client had very demanding needs, often sending us additional urgent assignments during the evening and at the weekend. The pressure on our team was immense, but we got the translation to the client on time.”
