Legal Translation Guideline, Explained by a Lawyer: “In Consideration Of”

Legal Insights for English Contract Translation: Understanding the Term “In Consideration Of”

In today’s globalized business environment, dealing with foreign buyers or vendors has become routine for many companies. As such, the translation and understanding of English contracts are crucial. These documents are essential not only for daily operations but also for ensuring legal accuracy and preventing disputes. Today, we delve into the complexities of translating the term “In Consideration Of” often seen in legal documents.


✅ Importance and Translation of the Term “In Consideration Of”

Translating English contracts involves complexities beyond simply translating language. Key terms in contracts can differ from their general meanings, requiring careful attention from professional translators.

For example, the phrase “In Consideration Of” often appears in contracts along with everyday English phrases like “Now, Therefore”. While it translates to ‘~을 고려해 볼 때’ in everyday English, in contracts, “in consideration of” is interpreted as a ‘약인조항’. A ‘약인조항’ specifies an exchange of consideration, translated as ‘~의 대가로, ~을 대가(악인으)로 하여’.

  • NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and the mutual covenants herein contained, the parties hereto agree as follows:
  • Korean: 이에 따라, 본 계약에 포함된 전제 및 상호 확약을 약인으로 하여, 당사자들은 다음과 같이 합의한다;

This highlights the importance of experienced translators in handling legal documents where complex terms and conditions are involved. Legal terms might appear in multiple documents, requiring consistent and accurate translation to avoid any legal pitfalls.
