Contract translation services

Are you regularly involved in commercial transactions with multilingual partners? If so, translating contracts is often an essential preliminary step to avoid linguistic ambiguities and ensure that all signatories involved completely understand the content of the contract. At Optilingua, we offer contract translation services from specialist, highly qualified professional translators who respect the confidentiality of your contractual documents.


The translation of contracts is a sensitive issue because it involves confidential documents.

Clauses in service and business contracts are often very complex and contain important legal elements. To avoid any problems, translation must be faithful down to the smallest detail. Similarly, any termination, objection, or withdrawal must be worded in the translated version in such a way that even an experienced lawyer cannot be left with the slightest doubt as to whether it is faithful to the original text. This is why, when translating contracts, it is essential to use an experienced translator with appropriate legal knowledge. What's more, given the high stakes involved in contractual documents, it is essential to use a trusted translation agency that can ensure the complete confidentiality of the contracts.

Why you should use Optilingua to translate contracts

The drafting and translation of contracts are governed by specific rules in both form and content. This type of document requires specific and highly specialised technical and legal terminology. What's more, the standards in force for drafting contracts can vary from one country to another. To preserve the legal integrity and value of the document in the country concerned, it is therefore essential that you use the services of specialist professional translators.

Optilingua offers you the services of a team of professional, native-speaking translators who specialise in the translation of contractual documents. In addition to their perfect command of the language pairing concerned, the translators understand the cultural and regulatory specificities in force in the country concerned.

In addition, if the signatories wish to legally reinforce their agreement, Optilingua can provide them with sworn translators, so that they can benefit from a contract translation whose legal value has been authenticated, to make the final document perfectly usable in international transactions.

Our contract translators are committed to ensuring the accuracy of the linguistic content and they work with confidentiality, professionalism, and attention to detail. They are also capable of working in over 100 languages, from the most common to the rarest, on contracts of all kinds.


FAQ about our contract translation services

It's hard to say without seeing the documents. The price of a legal translation depends on several factors, including the language, complexity, and length of the original text.

Optilingua's standard turnaround time for translating contracts of less than 3,000 words is 2 days (excluding weekends and public holidays). However, with the Priority option, you can expect delivery within a few hours, for an additional charge calculated as a percentage of the normal rate for our services.

Our translators demonstrate a high level of professionalism throughout the translation process and always ensure the confidentiality of your personal information and the documents translated. For added peace of mind, we can also sign a confidentiality agreement.
