List of journals on Legal Translation & Interpreting / Language & Law

library-stairsFor some time now, I’ve wanted to draw up a list of journals that publish articles about legal translation and legal interpreting or more generally about language and law. So here it is!

In keeping with the field of translation, the journals listed below include papers in a variety of languages including Italian, Polish, Portuguese, French, Spanish, Swedish, Slovak, and so on, as well as English.

Of course, relevant papers may also be found in other journals dealing with other related topics such as corpus linguistics, lexicography, terminology, international business studies, and so forth. Conference proceedings may also contain articles of interest, as may publications by professional bodies such as translators’ or lawyers’  associations. Institutions also make available publications from time to time. There are also online magazines covering language issues, e.g. Slator or Babel, and covering the law e.g. ABA Journal or Lexology.

Greece, Corinth CanalN.B. The list above is divided into open access and pay-for-access purely to assist users when searching, but that division is in no way related to quality or to coverage. Those carrying out research are strongly encouraged to also consult pay-for-access and not to rely on open-access sources only.
