Legal translation is translation of a text from any source language to other target language in the field of law. With globalization, business crossed the boundaries of a countries, multiple offices are necessary to deal these requirements. International trade between two different companies necessitate to have the agreements in their native language, thus demand for translations is created.
Quality of translation and the terminology is vital in all legal matters. Legal translation is a challenging field, legal documents have a typical drafting style and legal jargon. Where a translator has to pay attention to every minute details of punctuations. Such as coma (,) full stop (.) etc. These small things have great importance in legal translation. For instance, a coma changes the complete meaning of the following sentence, “wait, not hang him” and “wait not, hang him”. In first sentence “coma” was placed before the word not, meaning requesting not to proceed with hanging process. Where as in second sentence it was placed after not which means not to wait any more and proceed with hanging process.

Human Translation Vs. Machine Translation
A text translated by human being from a source language to a target language is called as human translation. Language is a medium of communication among humans. Human beings have the ability to speak, write, think and analyze, which makes him to stand distinct from all computers/ machines and animals in this world.
Translation is a combination of skills that cannot be replaced by machines in near future because of their numerous limitations. For producing quality translations, typical translation process needs, a document to be read and analyzed first, and prepared the terminology and glossary then the source text is translated properly step by step. Once first draft of translation is completed, translators go through the entire translation by editing the grammar and their writing style. He also makes sure the translation has the same meaning of the original document by proofreading the entire translation.
Each country has different culture consisting idiomatic language expressions associated with their life. Only human understands the culture and the language associated with the society. A native translator from that region/place can translate those idiomatic expressions correctly, which enhances the quality of translation.
When we speak about the advantages of the human translation we also need to discuss the limitations of human translations. The first limitation is its time taking. Since human has to read, understand, analyze and write the translation which takes lot of time to produce quality translations. Also, the cost, the human translation cost much when compared to machine translation. Some translations require two or more translators to work on in order to catch up tight schedules there comes the consistency issue, because two people cannot think and analyze in the same way their writing styles and vocabulary usage also causes the cohesion problem.
In contrary to human, a text translated by machine is called as machine translation. We live in a world where communicating across the globe is necessary for our personal and business needs. Globalization and international trade created the need to work with foreign languages. This increased demand for the fast/quick translation and these requirements are fulfilled by machine translations and online translation tools. Generally, machine translates word to word or sentence to sentence which may not match to the meaning of the original document. Although, machine translation provides poor quality of translation, but it is useful for general understanding of a document, as saying goes “some translation is better than no translation”.
