From the Canadian Department of Justice, terms that have been subject to legislative harmonization between the common law and civil law systems. Thank “From Words to Deeds” for the tip and extract.
This is a great resource for translators working with French and English – the Canadian Department of Justice has published individual factsheets or “records” for terms that have been the subject of legislative harmonization between the common law and civil law systems. The records include many legal concepts (one of the trickiest things to translate 😉 ) so I think it’s really useful.
