This book addresses salient issues arising from legal translation in an era of Europeanization and globalization of law, focussing in particular on translation’s promises and limits. First, various fields of knowledge are solicited, such as linguistics, translation studies and philosophy, in order to clarify the relations between law and language. Secondly, detailed studies of the Canadian experience of translation of federal statutes, on the one hand, and of the proposed uniformization of private laws within the European Union, on the other hand, are offered in order to illustrate the difficulties inherent to the process of legal translation. By assessing in rigorous manner and by means of two different examples the implications of legal translation at a time of cosmopolitization, this interdisciplinary and critical work intends to further legal knowledge both in its theoretical and practical dimensions.
