contract translation

  The special function of contract and its strange stylistic characteristics objectively put forward more strict requirements for contract translation. The translation must be precise in meaning and strict in meaning, and should not be ambiguous because of its loose structure and confused meaning. Otherwise, one party to the contract will use the absolute accuracy and vagueness of the text to find cracks, so as to avoid responsibility. In business contract translation, we should first be accurate, and then strive to be smooth. If you only want to be smooth and accurate, it will become a random translation; If you only want to be accurate and smooth, you can't be really accurate. Therefore, the two restrict each other and lack one.

  Business contract is a special applied text, which focuses on recording facts. One of the characteristics of words is accuracy and preciseness. As a business contract is a document with legal effect, it is necessary to strictly define the obligations, rights, codes of conduct and other clear terms on both sides of the contract.

  Based on these principles, we will be able to complete our work excellently and do better in social and economic growth.
