The sale of a business is a task that demands patience, precision and rigour, this is even more true with sales that take on an international dimension. In such cases where the parties involved do not all share the same mother tongue, accurate translation of the business purchase agreement is vital.

Significance of Business Purchase Agreements

These agreements are a legal contract for the sale of a business, which are used to transfer the ownership of a given business from the seller to the buyer. It lays out the details of the sale such as any warranties and what is included in the sale price, and naturally also what is excluded from it. Clearly it is important for this agreement to be clear to everyone, particularly in an international deal. If both parties do not leave a deal after completion sharing the same beliefs about what has been bought or sold and under what terms, a mistake has been made at some point during the completion of the sale. This can be avoided in international deals by having an accurate translation of the business purchase agreement, so that everyone knows exactly where they stand after the sale.

The Process of Translation

Business purchase agreements require a legal expert for translation because these documents are legally binding. Legal experts know how to translate the document without losing any of the meaning in a legal sense so are best placed for these types of task. As they will be translating into their native language, they will know what works best in terms of the most appropriate turns of phrase, and grammar, thus ensuring that the purchase agreement retains the utmost clarity and there are no errors. Their expertise in the law is particularly important as international deals will of course be subject to trade laws from multiple different countries, and they will be best positioned to negotiate these legal waters, which tend to be fairly complicated, and could lead to errors with less experienced translators.
