Providing an accurate legal translation not only requires a perfect mastery of the language but also a thorough legal knowledge. We have this knowledge.

For and by lawyers

Lingua Jura offers translation and proofreading services to lawyers, notaries, bailiffs and legal departments of global companies.

Lingua Jura is a highly specialised legal translation bureau which you can rely upon for non-certified (“free”) and certified (“sworn”) translations of legal texts.

Your translations are exclusively carried out by lawyers/translators who have received thorough language training and most of whom have worked with renowned law firms.

Upon request, we can provide you with certified translations that are legalised by the Court of First Instance, or by Ministries and Embassies. Feel free to contact us for more information on this.

Lingua Jura was incorporated in September 2009 by Evelyne Desmet, who studied a Master in Romance Languages (French/Italian) (Catholic University of Leuven, 1997) before studying a Master in Law (Catholic University of Leuven and University of Ghent, 2001) and who was a lawyer (“advocaat/avocat”) in the Brussels Corporate M&A department of Linklaters LLP for 8 years.

Evelyne Desmet is also a sworn (“certified”) translator at the Court of First Instance of West Flanders, divisions Bruges (Brugge) and Courtrai (Kortrijk) for the Dutch, French, English and Italian languages.

For certified translations in other language pairs, we call upon the services of sworn translators in that specific language pair.

Evelyne Desmet continues to further her education by participating in seminars organised among others by KU Leuven (for academic year 2014-2015, the course ‘Contractual Clauses’ and the seminars ‘Code of Economic Law’ and ‘Themis Corporate and Financial Law’).
