La juritraductologie et le problème des équivalences des notions juridiques en droit des pays arabes

Maher Abdel Hadi
p. 71-78

Abstracts

The translation of legal texts is a discipline in itself, which seeks to determine applicable rules of methodology. It gives rise to a twofold problem. Firstly it raises queries of a general nature relevant to general rules of translation with which translators should be well familiar, irrespective of their speciality. Secondly, this category of translations requires special legal knowledge of administrative and judicial institutions in the country of the source language and knowledge of the same institutions in the country of the target language. The difficulty faced by translators of legal texts is that there is no systematic equivalence between known legal notions in countries of the source language and the judicial institutions of the country of the target language.The solution for these terms is phonetic transcription. Translators must not take risks but must restrict themselves to using the word as it is in English, French or Arabic and to transcribing the word phonetically in the target language.
