Bilingual and multilingual legal dictionaries in the European Union (A critical bibliography)
 
Gerard-René de Groot and Conrad J.P. van Laer
Maastricht, 15 May 2005


[Abstract]
 
Legal dictionaries are useful tools in preparing quality translations. Unfortunately, their  quality is often questionable due to a lack of reliability. Many such dictionaries deserve  serious criticism, which becomes clear when our evaluation criteria are applied. Based on comparative legal research, these criteria are applied to the basic organisation of bilingual and multilingual legal dictionaries.

The crucial issue in dictionary assessment is to establish a sound basis for criticism. We are  convinced that this basis is found in the nature of the language of the law. The language of  the law is very much a system-bound language, i.e. a language related to a specific legal system. Translators of legal terminology are obliged therefore to practice comparative law. Based on these crucial considerations, desiderata for reliable legal dictionaries may be formulated. A legal dictionary should indicate, for example, the degree of equivalence, or the absence thereof, in the target language-related legal system. 

From this broad perspective we have developed a typology for the purpose of classifying  hundreds of recently published legal dictionaries containing the legal languages of all EU Member States. We have established the following three categories; each successive category shows a higher degree of quality:
 
1) Word lists (WORD)
Those bilingual or multilingual lists of terms offering unsubstantiated translations; equivalence is assumed; no explanation as to different meanings is offered. Solely useful for words not found in other dictionaries;
2) Explanatory Dictionaries (EXPL)
Those also containing sample sentences illustrating the relevant linguistic context; 
3) Comparative Dictionaries (COMP) 
These also refer to legal systems and/or legal sources, such as legislation or the literature,
and to legal areas or comparative law. They distinguish between legal systems that share the
same language.
 
Our final conclusion is that most legal dictionaries must be classified as a word list, which implies here that they are of dubious quality. To date, few legal dictionaries have attempted to meet our criteria. Dictionaries that are based on comparative legal research, on the other hand, offer advantages that render them useful to professional translators.

The idea of a trichotomy can already be found with Jacques Le Tellier, who has distinguished three ‘generations’ of dictionaries: the first one does not give explanations nor examples; the second ‘generation’ provides for contexts to find equivalents; the third one offers contexts and definitions. (Jacques Le Tellier in a letter to the Asser Institute; see G. Hesseling, Een juridisch woordenboek: geen alledaags project; in: Tien jaren T.M.C. Asser Instituut 1965-1975, Den Haag 1975 (p. 141-148) p. 144.)

The names of the Member States of the European Union are abbreviated according to the most recent edition of the Interinstitutional style guide < 7.1.1. Designations and abbreviations to use http://publications.eu.int/code/en/en-370101.htm Last updated:
4.6.2004.
In connection to the names of the Member States, the direction of the translation is shown as follows:
→ one-way dictionary, only translating from e.g. FR into ES;
↔ bi-directional dictionary, for translating from e.g. FR into ES, and vice versa.

Contains a relatively low number of entries, but gives for these terms rather elaborated information. Contains references to literature and introductory information on the judicial
organisation in England, Norway, Sweden and Denmark. The title of the dictionary is too
broad, because it is obviously restricted to contract law. Interesting is that it is indicated explicitly whether for a given term from the source language a full or partial equivalent
exists in the target language. If one can hesitate about the equivalence, this is indicated with
‘compare’. Lack of an equivalent in the target language is also expressly mentioned.

533. They conclude (p. 532-533) that the volume fails to give an indication as to the degree of equivalence of terms and does not state whether a suggested translation is a neologism. They have missed also (bibliographic) references as to legal system, area of law and relevant articles or Codes. The volume offers mainly unsubstantiated translation suggestions.

Entry terms and translation suggestions are illustrated with quotations, the sources of most of which are given. It can also be used by Belgian users. The dictionary is good, but
somewhat outdated, because important alterations have been made to the French and
especially the Dutch private law since the completion of this work. Positive reviews in Verzekerings-Archief 1978, p. 161-162; and in: TVVS/Ondernemingsrecht 1979, p. 210. Negative reviews in: SEW 1978, p. 788; in: Rechtskundig Weekblad 1978-1979, kolom 122-124; and in: R.M. Themis 1979, p. 30-31.

This dictionary restricts itself to terminology in the field of procedural law and judicial organisation. In respect of the French and German entries, references to statutory
provisions and legal literature are frequently provided. The book contains several
conceptual trees of English, French and German legal terms. The book contains surveys of the judicial organisation in the countries involved. The translation suggestions in Danish do
not contain references to statutes or legal literature.

The dictionary is divided systematically with the terms being given a central place. The book contains gradations of equivalence and references to statutory provisions. ‘Ein

‘Regretfully, the dictionaries cover only a small number of terms (…). On the other hand, the methods of conceptual analysis used therein can serve as a model for others’; cf. S. Šarčević, New Approach to Legal Translation, The Hague 1997, p. 237.

Translations, e.g. ‘tribunale’, have been partially inversed. This is a bad word list.
According to G. Rouhette (Revue internationale de droit comparé 1991, p. 958) ‘très éloigné du `Dizionario giuridico’ (...) de F. de Franchis’.
In the Italian/English part, incidentally references to legislative provisions have been made
at the end of each list of entrance terms, each list being alphabetically ordered (starting with particular characters). This precludes an easy access to this information.

Word list which refers regularly, but not systematically, to statutory provisions that are
taken from a large number of legal systems. The dictionary is incomplete and too broad which makes it less suitable for translations that are limited to two legal systems.
