edin Training & Translations endeavours to provide high quality tailor made services, specialising in Legal English Training and Legal Translations by fully qualified lawyer-linguists, based in the Lisbon area of Portugal but operating nationwide and cross border.
For all our services quality is key.
Training entails an investment not only in terms of money, but also in terms of time. Therefore the training options should be as effective as possible, which in our opinion means that they should be personalised and practical. All our courses aim to develop language skills and ease when speaking, thus enabling the speaker to focus on the content rather than the form. This promotes not only confidence, but also negotiation power.
Translations need to be accurate, true to the meaning of the original and delivered timely, as simple as that. Avoiding interpretation errors when dealing with legal texts and understanding legal concepts are furthermore key for the quality of the end result.
Thus for all our Legal English Training & Legal Translation services we rely on fully qualified lawyer-linguists with not only academic but also professional working experience in law.
At edin Training & Translations we also understand our clients´need for confidentiality and thus we ensure the confidential treatment of all documents. If the client so wishes, confidentiality agreements will be signed by us. All our team members and subcontractors are also required to sign confidentiality agreements.
