Mentoring for translators who translate contracts


Learn to draft contracts from and into English and Portuguese with qualified lawyers trained in translation.

Legal English is becoming an essential field of study for professionals that seek to communicate effectively in judicial spheres in law, not just in Brazil, but in different countries. 
On a progressive basis, legal professionals are being exposed to, for example, international issues, such as business mergers, litigation and contracts, in situations where everything takes place and is resolved in a foreign language other than Portuguese, normally English. 

For this reason, it has become necessary to learn how to translate contracts into English and Portuguese.  At Uncomplicating Legal English your learning will be facilitated by qualified lawyers trained in translation, who have experience in these areas and who are aware of the tendencies and necessities that the market demands of professionals working in this area. 

The idea is to study legal English with qualified lawyers trained in translation studies, learning the overarching, basic concepts of the process and applying them to translate contractual clauses in to Portuguese and English.

Students will learn the following:

● Contractual theory.

● Contract models.

● The elements of a contract in English and in Portuguese.
● Notions of contractual law in the common law system and the civil law system.

● Corresponding terms and contractual clauses.

In addition to this, you will translate contractual clauses into English and Portuguese and you will receive personalized feedback from your teacher. The aim of the course is to study the translation of contracts, so that the work of a translator can be carried out in the most technical and efficient way possible.  The classes are held on either a weekly, fortnightly or monthly basis or based on the needs of the student and their availability.

The purpose of the legal English is to provide individual classes on the Zoom platform.
