E.Lessons learned at the training
This report’s introduction matches the description of the work space and the importance of training in legal translation with using a mastery of English language. Therefore, What power does English language have in legal issues sourced from the Moroccan regulations and laws or the reverse of the same? The report can also be an occasion to reiterate aspects of success and failure at performing certain tasks. while translating legal issues from English to Arabic or Arabic to English, the laws of the two languages have different features, exigencies and provisions. This could be much clearer with some legal documents, which I have received from the lawyer’s cabinet, skimmed and enfolded in this report. For more specification, a five week’s training at least offers the trainee (me) a fresh breath to know and realize the work life with all the tasks I undergo and the findings I come out with.

This way the legal document translated the pleasures gained by the translator and the tiring difficulties of translating legal texts. a. Pleasures of translating legal documents.
Translation as a continual process leads the translator to further knowledge. s/he enjoys the pleasure of coming up with new lexis to be in the standard level of a sophisticated elite. Respectively, legal papers exposed to translation forces the translator, even if how much knowledge he has, to refer to dictionaries, however, general ones do not ever provide concise equivalence for the lexemes we look for. As far as my experience consent, While I’ve been attempting some translation from Moroccan legal papers to English and vice-versa over a month training-period, the rewriting of a legal document that takes place partly within the community of Moroccan speakers, I discovered that the...
