Legal Contracts in Spanish

Within the US, there are roughly 50 million Spanish speakers which has prompted countries to translate their legal contracts into Spanish. These contracts are still Governed by US law in the US, and it is important to make sure you use a 'Prevailing Language Clause' in case there are disputes between the language. 

Contract law in Latin America has been regional for a very long time but there are recent efforts in harmonization. In Spain, a contract does not need to be in any particular form to be legally binding. As long as the basic elements of a contract exist (concurrence of wills of the parties (offer and acceptance), purpose, and cause of the contract), it does not matter if the contract is formalized on paper or online.

Spanish Translation Comments

Latin America versus Spain

When translating contracts into Spanish, it is important to consider the target audience and the language to be used. There is a difference between Spanish spoken in Latin America versus the Spanish spoken in Spain. There are also differences in legal language across different Latin American countries.

Spanish Text Expansion

Translating contracts into Spanish always yields an expansion of text. A translator may need to expand the text to make sure the contract is performing its function, but Spanish also naturally expands when being translated from English. This is important to keep in mind with things like pagination and budgeting.

Spanish Speaking Countries

Over 570 million people speak Spanish around the world. The top Spanish speaking countries are Mexico, US, Spain, and Colombia.

Largest Industries in Spanish Speaking Countries

The two largest industries in Latin America are agriculture and mining. The largest industries in Spain are tourism, manufacturing, agriculture and energy.
