      诉讼材料译文质量差的代价

      诉讼材料译文质量差的代价

      正如上一篇文章所讨论,在大多数国际案件中,许多书面证据都是公开的,并最终通过翻译人员呈现给裁决者。然而,在案件工作中,律师往往将翻译放在较低的优先级,并根据价格或速度而非服务质量来选择法律翻译提供商。正如本帖所讨论对,这种方法会给律师及其客户带来隐性成本。

      使一方败诉或处于劣势

      最显而易见的代价是,误译可能会令一方败诉或处于严重劣势。这种情况并非假设。在史上最大的投资争议之一 Occidental v. Ecuador 中,厄瓜多尔判例法英文翻译糟糕,导致损害赔偿金增加了 40% – 达到惊人的 707,850,000 美元。这部分裁决最终被 ISCID 特设委员会(由三名母语为西班牙语的人组成)撤销,但当事方不得不经历漫长而代价高昂的撤销程序。 

      1. Occidental Petroleum Corporation and Occidental Exploration and Production Company v. The Republic of Ecuador, Dissenting Opinion, ICSID Case No. ARB/06/11, Dissenting Opinion of Professor Brigitte Stern, 16 December 2011, ¶¶ 95-98, 103-104.
      2. Occidental Petroleum Corporation and Occidental Exploration and Production Company v. The Republic of Ecuador, Dissenting Opinion, ICSID Case No. ARB/06/11, Decision on Annulment of the Award, 2 November 2015 (Prof. Juan Fernández-Armesto, President Judge Florentino P. Feliciano, Member of the Committee Mr. Rodrigo Oreamuno B., Member of the Committee).

      对通常不在“一线”的高级法律团队成员而言,其他代价没有那么明显。

      花时间解决翻译质量问题

      通常由初级律师或律师助理提出文件翻译请求并审校,他们负责评估文件翻译与案件的相关性和重要性,并就是否使用译稿以及如何使用向高级别的同事提出建议。审校翻译的文件需要时间。审校(或校对)糟糕翻译要多花费一倍的时间。这不仅仅是客户的成本,还会减少员工处理其他重要案件的时间和精力。选择廉价翻译服务节省成本并不划算。

      实际步骤

      因此,在法律翻译上走捷径可能会得不偿失。为了确保不会“因为翻译”输了官司,律师可以:

      1. 花足够的时间选择和测试合格的法律翻译服务;
      2. 允许服务提供商有足够的时间提供准确易读的翻译;
      3. 让您或您的客户在选择法律翻译服务时不要只注重价格或速度。
