The major difficulty in legal translation is the translation of legal concepts; they are unique to a particular system. Legal language is a technical language; a language for special purposes (LSP). However, it differs from other LSPs, such as technical or medical, because it is not international and standardised; it is unique to each national legal system.

"Community-centric" scientific references

"Community-centric" scientific references | Translation Studies, Corpus Linguistics, Academia | Scoop.it

What can you do when you read a paper and notice that the author did not reference an article that should have been referenced? Do you perhaps feel that life is unfair because the authors of an unrecognized paper will not receive their deserved credit ? Well, in such instances, it’s up to you to use ScientificCitations.org and make it fair. Just register, and help the author who did not know about the deserving paper acknowledge it by adding a post-publication citation.
