Legal Interpreters: English to Korean, Korean to English and other multiple languages
Korean presents unique challenges for language interpreters. Most significantly, Korean is one of the very few “language isolates” with little to no demonstrable relationship with other languages. It is by no means an easy language to learn. This amplifies the challenges faced by the average legal interpreter.
At TJC Global, we understand the challenge that Korean legal interpreting presents. We have provided high-quality Korean legal interpreters with substantial experience in litigation, deposition and arbitration, for over 25 years. We provide Korean legal interpretation services for a number of large international law firms. We recently provided highly experienced Korean interpreters for arbitration hearings involving the infrigment of technological patents owned by a very large Korean multinational.
A big part of our legal interpreting practice; we have been providing top-quality Korean legal interpreters for a wide array of settings for over 25 years.
We also provide experienced Korean legal interpreters for meetings between attorneys, advocates and clients; at legal conferences and seminars and for all types of hearings and tribunals.

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 Korean 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 Korean litigation 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 Korean Legal System
South Korea has adopted much of the continental or civil system. There are explicitly written legal codes: including in the realm of constitutional law. Thus, when legal problems arise, written rules are the primary sources of reference.
The criminal law consists of a general part and a special part. The general part deals with the scope and application of the law. In particular, it deals with the various types of justification. For instance: insanity, other defences and the concept of failed attempt and joint-enterprise. The special part encompasses more specialised offences.
The South Korean criminal justice system is primarily an accusatorial system. However, the basic structure of criminal procedure amalgamates both the inquisitorial and the adversarial systems. This is primarily due to the nature of Korean criminal procedure, which is a merger of American and German criminal procedures.
However, the legal culture in South Korea has its own idiosyncrasies. Typically, individuals are very reluctant to resolve conflicts through the judicial. Rather, an informal resolution, such as coordination or conciliation, is often the most common solution, particularly with regards to civil law matters.
