Legal, Financial and Medical


Understanding regional differences

Translating legal documents from Europe and Latin America requires an understanding of the differences in legal systems and legal concepts, and how best to express them in the target language.

Aware Translations founder Ella Rich applies her training as a technical translator to researching and translating complex legal documents. Recent projects include:

  • Pharmaceutical regulation

  • Hague Convention child abduction documents

  • Interjurisdictional child custody documents

  • Regulation of temporary employment agencies and corresponding corporate policy




Reflecting an ever-changing scenario


The global economic scenario changes at lightning speed. Ella studies and researches the subject area on an ongoing basis to master the micro- and macroeconomic conditions impacting investment decisions worldwide.


Ella routinely provides translation support to a Top 20 bank and other financial sector clients. Recent projects include:

  • Financial market reports

  • Financial fraud litigation background documents

  • ICLAAP regulation

  • Corporate financial statements



Conveying your message precisely


Translating medical texts requires research skills for investigating unknown terms and an ability to work with professionals in a range of job categories. Ella specializes in untangling technically dense language to get to the heart of your message.

In the University College London Master of Science program in Scientific, Medical and Technical Translation, Ella developed the skills needed to handle your scientific and medical texts expertly. Recent projects include:

• Continuing medical education videos
• Neurocognitive software
• Clinical trial patient records
• Private clinic website





I translate exclusively into English, my native language, and exclusively in my subject matters of expertise. This ensures a clear, precise, professional text that reads as though it were originally written by a native English speaker.

Back Translation

If your customer-facing applications and marketing materials have been translated or localized from English into Spanish, Portuguese or French, I offer back translation into English for an extra layer of quality control that ensures the intended message is accurately reflected.

Revision of Non-Native English

I offer revision of academic articles to be submitted for publication and conference presentations for attorneys, financial professionals, physicians and researchers whose first language is not English.
