Accurate Legal Translation When
You Need It

Although most legal dictionaries can help you translate legal terms from English to Spanish, different words are used by different Spanish speaking countries, creating a major problem if you don’t know which one to use to talk to your target audience. For example, standard translations of the word motion are solicitud, moción, pedimento, and petición. However, if you need to know what the translation is for Puerto Rico specifically, you would find that it is moción.
