Translation of Dutch legislation

With the financial help of the Netherlands Ministry of Justice, CILC has designed and implemented a small pilot project to establish a quality control procedure for the English translation of Dutch laws. Translation guidelines have been developed and applied in the translation of the Dutch Algemene Wet Bestuursrecht (General Administrative Law Act) into English, which was completed in November 2009. Another important outcome of the project was a report on the findings of the project including the importance of such translation, the challenges and recommendations for the translation and publication of legal texts in English.
