Legal Korean Translation

Legal Korean translation services for business and legal matters


The field of Korean legal translation covers a broad range of content types. Korean documents, such as internal correspondence and contracts, are often at the center of legal disputes. Many levels of the Korean government produce laws and legal regulations. Public agencies in Korea approve and sanction the activities of companies and investors. Once international litigation involving Korean companies begins, any piece of paper related to the dispute becomes an important “legal document”. Even immigration, property purchases, and patent filings in Korea require support from a professional legal Korean translator.

I am an expert on Korean culture, business, and, of course, the Korean language. My legal Korean translation work is precise, I always deliver on-time, and I handle everything with absolute confidentiality. Because of my proficiency in translating documents for many legal purposes, I support the work of lawyers and attorneys, as well as companies, investors, and individuals.

Legal Korean translator for business contracts and agreements

The following are only a few of the types of agreements you might sign while doing business in Korea: partnership agreements, distributorship and other agency agreements, licensing agreements and other agreements for the management of intellectual property, supplier and subcontractor agreements, employment agreements, lease agreements, agreements for the purchase and sale of real estate and equipment, investment agreements. As a Korean legal translator, I have translated countless Korean contracts and agreements. Contact me to know exactly what a legal Korean agreement says before you sign, or in the event of a legal dispute later. My careful and competent approach to legal Korean translation will ensure you know every detail correctly and clearly.

Official legal documents from public Korean organizations

Doing business in Korea requires working with various departments, agencies, and offices within the Korean government.  These Korean organizations generate a lot of paperwork, such as permits and notifications. Legislative information (including laws, presidential decrees, regulations, and ordinances) pertaining to your business can also include critical information that impacts your business. I will ensure you understand the relevant content issued by the authorities in Korea. 


“I hired Korean Consulting & Translation Service, Inc. to help me translate divorce documents. I even had them do a little investigative work and call relatives of the lady I needed to send the documents to so that she would know they were coming. I was very pleased with their service. They were on time and on budget.”

Legal Korean translator for litigation and arbitration involving Korean parties

Legal proceedings result in an endless stream of written material. Claims, responses, and other filings–as well judgments, court notices, and orders–make up the documentary framework over which the litigation and arbitration processes operate. In legal discovery, evidence often involves internal company emails and reports, correspondence between companies, legal agreements entered into, financial records, patents, and other materials relevant to the case. I am a legal Korean translator and have translated Korean documents on many legal cases. These include both international litigation and local arbitration. My work also includes family matters and negotiations that have not yet reached the courts. Contact me for legal Korean translation in all kinds of legal matters.


“Besides providing us with excellent translation services, Korean Consulting was able to aid us in a recent Korean real estate transaction. They made the calls necessary and provided us constant and immediate feedback to each call made on our behalf. We appreciate the professionalism and expediency Korean Consulting provided and will continue use their services for all of our Korea-related endeavors.”

Legal Korean translation related to intellectual property

Patents and utility models

Koreans are active inventors and patent filers. Many Korean patents have been issued in the fields of heavy chemicals and petroleum, automobiles and related technologies, semiconductors, telecommunications, and other electronics. However, Korean inventions are not limited to these, and Korean patents cover a wide range of fields.

Note: Patents are critical legal documents, but they share a lot in common with academic and scientific content. I also discuss my work on patents under my Korean academic and scientific translation services.

Copyrights, trademarks, and other intellectual property-related documents

Protecting intellectual property in Korea requires copyrights and trademarks. The process of maintaining this intellectual property–including for patents and utility models–also produces office actions, correspondence, and other related documents. Further, Korean intellectual property owners must have these documents translated for information purposes, as well as to maintain process integrity.

I have studied and am familiar with the patent process and the formal terminology involved, both in English and Korean. As a legal Korean translator, I translate dozens of patents, office actions, and other intellectual property-related documents every year. I am ready to provide you with impeccable translation of Korean documents related to intellectual property in Korea.
