Professional German Legal Interpreters – London | UK | Worldwide
A big part of our legal interpreting practice, we have been providing top-quality German legal interpreters for a wide array of settings for over 25 years.
As with all legal matters, the ability to understand one another is absolutely crucial. Before proceedings can commence, the concerned parties must be able to communicate with ease, across any pertinent language barriers. If this does not occur information will be incorrectly transmitted. We understand the demands that legal interpreting present. We provide German legal interpreters to and from all the main languages including English, Dutch,Swedish, Czech, Italian, French, Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese, Korean, Arabic and many more…
Clarity, precision and sensitivity are of utmost importance in arbitration cases. At TJC Global, we can ensure an efficient and accurate interpreting service for all your arbitration requirements.
Our large and diverse network of court interpreters are familiar with the format, conventions, procedures and requirements of court interpreting, and will deliver a skilled and professional interpreting service.

Depositions are demanding, requiring professional interpreters who can work in high-pressure scenarios. TJC can offer legal specialists for deposition interpreting of any nature.
It is essential that complex legal procedures are clearly accessible to speakers of other languages. We can offer expert interpreters who often have a background in the legal industry.
Mediation is an alternative to more formal arbitration, and at TJC, we provide specialised interpreting services to cater for mediatory conferences of all natures and in all contexts.
Our specialist interpreters ensure that language barriers do not impede ease of dialogue and the exchange of crucial information during tribunals.
The German Legal System
The highest law in Germany is the Basic Law for the Federal Republic of Germany. The basic principle of the German Judicial System is “Rechtsstaat.” In essence, all legal authority must be exercised in accordance with the rule of law. This means that any decision taken by a German authority can be challenged in court.
The German legal system differs fundamentally from the Anglo-Saxon common law system, in which courts rely mainly on precedents from prior cases called case law. The legal codes delineate abstract legal principles and the judges must decide the specific cases on the basis of these standards.
Germany has no entrenched preference for trial by jury. Furthermore, German trial judges are required to explain their decisions fully. In the United States, judges do justify their decisions in bench trials, but such trials are comparatively rare. Moreover, juries in the United States, and in England and Wales, do not have to justify their decisions at all.
The highest court in Germany, The Federal Constitutional Court, is very highly regarded worldwide. It is also known, amongst the international legal community, for being one of the most vocal national constitutional courts in the European Union. For instance, it was not until the case of Solange II that the Federal Court recognised the supremacy of EU law. However, the Federal Constitutional Court did add a caveat: EU law would be considered supreme so long as the ECJ maintained a level of protection of fundamental rights substantially in concurrence with the protections afforded by the German constitution.
