What is the Litigation Process?

Litigation is the process of taking a case to court. It can be a lengthy, expensive, time-consuming, emotionally draining, and unpredictable method of dispute resolution compared to arbitration and mediation. Arbitration and mediation have become increasingly popular due to their simpler, faster, more confidential nature. However, for complex cases, litigation is still very much needed.

The litigation process starts with an incident. It can be a breach of contract, a violation of the law, or civil/commercial disputes. The parties involved seek legal support to help them settle the case. After gathering enough materials as evidence for the case, the plaintiff will file a complaint. The summons will then also be filed. The defendant will be notified of the lawsuit and they will be given a response date. Once the defendant has answered the complaint, the case is ready for formal discovery.

Formal discovery includes asking and responding to questions, providing extra evidentiary documents, taking depositions, etc. During this period, parties can make motions-formal requests that the court takes a specific action. After that, all parties will seek the settle the dispute. If the case is still not resolved, it will be brought to trial. Trials can last for weeks, months, sometimes even years. If one side is unhappy with the outcome or the jury’s decision, they can file for an appeal.

Arbitration and mediation are alternative dispute resolution methods. Arbitration is a private process where a third-party, impartial arbitrator hears the 2 sides and makes the final decision. The decision of an arbitrator can’t be appealed like the decision in litigation. Mediation is similar to arbitration, where a mediator is involved. However, the final decision is in the hands of the parties, not the mediator.

Our Litigation Support Translation Services

We translate a wide range of documents to support you in your international, multilingual litigations.

Court Evidence Translation Service

Evidence is of crucial importance in any legal cases. Change the evidence and you change the law. Almost everything can be an evidence in court, from written documents, preprinted documents, emails, text messages, photographs, videos, to medical reports. All parties involved in the case have to carefully examine the contents of the evidence provided before the final judgement can be ruled. However, the examination process of the evidentiary documents can be hindered significantly if the materials provided are not in an unfamiliar language.

In international disputes, this is not uncommon, and they usually need to hire a translator to help them bridge the language gaps. Mistake in translation is unacceptable, as Law is a field that hinges on the wording. Misintepretation and mistranslation of one word or phrase is enough to divert the case to another direction. Due to the high sensitivity of these documents, only translators with experience, knowledge, and qualifcation in Law can take on the task.

pTranslate understands that you want to translate your critical documents in the most precise and accurate way possible. We have carefully vetted translators who have had proven records of delivering accurate translations for their clients in the past. To achieve the highest accuracy for your translation, pTranslate also equips them with real-time writing assistant, translation memory and other technologies. In addition to all of that, we also perform pre-delivery proofreading and reviewing to ensure that everything is accurately adapted to the language of your choice.

Legal Translation Services for Business Contracts and Agreements

In commercial disputes such as claims for breach of contract, the parties involved need to present the contract as the basis for their arguments. The case will primarily revolve around this critical document. Linguistic nuances of the documents will be taken into consideration to decide the outcome of the case. However, in international disputes, the language differences pose significant challenges to parties who don’t speak the language used in the contracts.

In order to faciliate mutual understanding in both parties, a legal translator is usually called in to translate the contracts and/or agreements. Contracts and agreements are usually challenging and highly technical text filled with legal jargon and terminology. If a translator is not familiar with this kind of document, they won’t be able to understand it properly, let alone translate it to the languages requested. It is also crucial that the translator retain all of the nuances in the contract, as one single misinterpretation is enough to divert the entire case. Due to the sensitive nature of legal translation, only certified translators are allowed to take on the tasks.

pTranslate has vast networks of certified translators who can perform legal translation services for contracts and agreements to support your litigation process. We understand that it is your reputation, time, money, and a lot of other people involved, so we take this matter seriously. A 7-step QA process is implemented to ensure that the delivery is precise and stay true to the original version. All of your data and information will be kept confidential.

Legal Translation Service for Pleadings, Complaints, Petitions, Legal Briefs, and other Litigation Support Documents

In the litigation process, there will be a lot of documents that need to be filed. For example, when a complaint (or petition) is filed by the plaintiff (the party suing) against the defendant (the party being sued), a lawsuit begins. The defendant can then file an answer to the plaintiff’s complaint. A counterclaim can also be filed by the defendant against the plaintiff, in which the defendant makes statements that the plaintiff has damaged the defendant in some ways. Later in the process, all parties can file pre-trial motions, such as Motion to Discover, in which one party seeks to gain information from the other party, or the Motion to Dismiss, in which the court is asked to dismiss the lawsuit.

It is a complicated process. When parties from multiple countries or regions with varied languages, things get even more complex. In these cases, interpreters and translators are usually called in to help the parties bridge the language difference.

Legal Translation Service of Patents for Patent Infringement Cases

In copyright infringement cases, one party will have to present their rightful ownership over the copyrighted and patented products. In cases where the patent is not available in the languages that the court uses, it is required that the inventor/patent holder translate this document to the languages of the court, or the other party. As the purpose of the project is strictly for information gathering, the translator is required to perform a “”literal” translation. Everything in the patent, from the wording, writing style, to the sentences structure, has to be preserved.

The level of linguistic control necessary for patent transalation is extremely high. Moreover, patents themselves contain highly technical and detailed description of innovations and inventions, and only experts in the field can truly comprehend and understand this type of content. Finding someone with both linguistic competence, legal knowledge, and technical expertise is not easy, and pTranslate understands your struggles.
