3.0 out of 5 stars Decent introductory resource but could get novices in trouble... 8 Dec 2013
By Easeness - Published on
Based on the pages excerpted here, the translations provided are mostly solid but it's concerning that the author doesn't distinguish between the different meanings of some words. For example, "appearance" as it's translated refers to appearing before a judge in a proceeding, which is fine, but that should be noted so that translation isn't used in a different context like "The victim provided officers a description of the perpetrator's APPEARANCE." Same deal with "assessment"- the translation provided refers to an evaluation but assessment is often used with a totally different meaning in legal settings to describe the levying of a fine. Again, no distinction is made so if the reader doesn't know any better they're going to be lead into an inaccurate, nonsensical translation.

In sum, you have to already have some idea of what's going on to make full use of this book. The lack of nuance makes it problematic for its intended audience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good quick reference 18 Oct 2013
By Daindron - Published on
This is a conveniently sized book with lots of common legal words (like "stipulate" = "estipular") or words typically used in a legal context (like "loss" = "perdida"). Each word usually has only one, two or maybe three translations, so it's best used as a quick reference. It does not explain the words with a definition, but rather provides a concise, accurate translation. It has both English to Spanish and Spanish to English, so you can look up words both ways pretty quickly. The author did a good job of picking words that are actually used a lot. I'm a U.S. lawyer that frequently works in Mexico and the book has been very handy.

I found quite a complete amount of vocabulary that is helpful for Interpreters to have handy when interpreting in a legal setting.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Useful Reference 7 Sep 2013

The book contains the common legal terms you might need to use in an interpreting/translating effort. Other books may be more comprehensive, but this is good to have on the shelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended! 11 Jun 2013
By David N - Published on
This book is very helpful for any practioner who speaks Spanish but does not normally use legal terms regularly. I appreciate that the book has both English to Spanish and Spanish to English. It is just the right size to carry with you. Too many dictionaries are bulky and small print. This one gets it right. This is my go to book whenever I travel to Mexico for work.
