Translation of agreements and contracts

If you’re signing an agreement or contract that’s been translated by your Client it would be in your best interest to have the translation proofread before signing. There have been occasions where the ‘odd’ sentence has been ‘added’ or ‘removed’ in the translated text. A level of due diligence should be taken to ensure that the translated version is a ‘true copy of the original text’ especially when stated in the contract that the translated version prevails.
