The primary role of any type of translation is to "bridge two cultures separated by language barriers, to see how these barriers are crossed and how communication can be established between the sender of the message embodied in the text and its recipients" *. The two cultures are equipped with laws, legal terminology, concepts of their own and codes to national law making. However, the need to cooperate, the very existence of international trade, business, the integration of economic, political and social spheres calls for constant translation.
