Business and Commercial Law Interpreters

As a division of civil law, commercial law is sometimes also referred to as business law or corporate law, which focuses on the laws that govern commerce, trade, sales and merchandising as well as the businesses and individuals who participate in those activities.

Bridging Translation has been providing professional commercial law translation and interpreting services to well-known law firms and individual clients in both Victoria and New South Wales. Our commercial law language specialists have in-depth knowledge of business and financial concept and terminologies. A free pre-trial background information study will further ensure our interpreters to be more familiar with your case and help you remove all the language barriers in your court proceedings.


Family Law Interpreters

Australia’s family law system helps people resolve the legal aspects of family relationship issues such as relationship breakdown, property settlement and child custody. It is very different from China’s family law system. That’s why we are here to help you understand your family law court proceedings in your language.

Bridging Translation is working together with family law specialists both in and outside of the court. Together, we make sure that our clients understand their case in full in both language and legal aspects.

Bridging Translation’s family law interpreting team is working in family court buildings, family law firms and family consultants on a daily basis. We understand it is already difficult for our clients to experience this difficult time of the change of the family relationship not to mention that they have to deal with it in a foreign legal system. That’s why we are committed to doing our best building a language bridge and help our client relieve all pressures from language barriers.


Criminal Law Interpreters

The criminal law of Australia is a law that deals with matters relating to crime. In Australia, the general rule under criminal law is that an accused person is innocent until proven guilty. The prosecutor has to prove that the accused is guilty to the standard of ‘beyond reasonable doubt’, which is the highest standard in law.

It will be frustrating if you are involved in a criminal case. The situation will be even worse if you cannot communicate freely with the police and your lawyer.

Bridging Translation is working closely with criminal law defence lawyers, the police, the crime stoppers, investigators and different levels of the Australian court. Our interpreters and translators play an important role in the Australian legal system, ensuring that the non-English speaking person understands what is happening in their police interview, court proceeding, and meeting with the lawyer. More importantly, we make sure that our clients can express themselves in their mother tongue whenever needed.

Our legal interpreters have been working in different courts in Australia almost every day, ranging from Magistrates’ Courts, County Courts, Supreme Courts to High Courts, and for police interviews, investigations and client meetings.
