Any legal translation is possible at JMS Textservice.


Translating legal documents requires specialised knowledge and accuracy. After all, an error in a legal translation can have major consequences. JMS Textservice is staffed by specialised translators versed in specific legal terminology. This enables our legal translation agency to provide you with expert and correct translations in a short amount of time.

Legal translations must sometimes be completed at short notice. We understand that and our flexible work process enables us to handle urgent requests with no problem. Because we work with various sworn translators in all language pairs, legal documents can be translated into virtually any language at JMS Textservice

And that does not stop once your document is returned. No matter how large, complex or urgent the translation request, our answer is always ‘yes’. Unless you ask whether something is impossible…


Experienced legal translators

Our translation team

We have a fantastic in-house translation team. Whatever the situation may be, the JMS team is at your service. With their extensive legal knowledge, our translators will translate your documents perfectly. Check out our legal translation team on this page and find out what JMS Textservice can do for you.


Translation is a two-step process at our legal translation agency. Our translators start working on the translation as soon as you supply the source text. They work closely together in small teams to ensure consistency in terms of style and terminology. After the source text is translated, the translation is always reviewed and edited by a second translator. That is how we can always guarantee the quality of our legal translations.

Legal translations supplied by JMS Textservice adhere to the style, terminology and legal substance of your source text. The translators at our legal translation agency regularly take courses and trainings to keep their legal knowledge up to date


No matter how complex your request is, the translation process is always simple. You provide us with a digital file of your source text, our translation team gets to work and a second translator conducts a final check. You receive your translation by e-mail within the agreed term. We always welcome comments, additions or questions as part of our process.


We know that legal work is not always a nine-to-five prospect. That is why we are always available: nights, weekends and holidays. Need a quotation right away? Call us and you will receive a price estimate within an hour.


Because we work efficiently, we can offer very competitive rates. We charge a fixed rate per word that depends on the language pair. A fixed fee can be agreed in advance for major projects. We do not charge exorbitant fees for urgent assignments, just a surcharge of 25%

Why choose JMS Textservice as your Legal Translation Agency?

Legal texts are often chock-full of legal jargon. This can make it difficult to read and understand a legal text, let alone to translate it into a different language. When it comes to drafting important legal documents, you want the assistance of a translator who specialises in law. Unfortunately, it can be a difficult and time-consuming process to find a translator who is both highly qualified and affordable. JMS Textservice can help you provide legally correct, fluent translations of your documents. Our linguists have in-depth knowledge of languages, legal terminology and legal cultures. Legal translation agency JMS Textservice helps you ensure that your clients and partners are happy and helps you protect your business from lawsuits and fines.
