Legal Translation Services

For over ten years now, Hieronymus has devoted itself exclusively to the translation of legal and financial texts and documents. We have an established reputation for the quality of our translations used in legal, arbitral and regulatory proceedings, and for assisting Swiss companies and corporate groups in the preparation of multilingual contract documentation.

Translations by lawyers for lawyers

Founded by lawyers as a service for lawyers, Hieronymus has rapidly established itself as Switzerland’s leading translation agency for demanding clients looking for a partner to help them with their most challenging legal translation projects.

Expertise in Swiss law

Each translation project at Hieronymus is overseen by a Senior Lawyer-linguist. All of our lawyer-linguists are licensed to practice law in Switzerland and have years of professional experience. We translate only to and from the national languages of Switzerland, plus English and Spanish.

Le fait que les équipes de traducteurs de Hieronymus soient constituées de juristes et d'avocats différencie Hieronymus de ses concurrents par la qualité de leurs traductions juridiques et leur professionnalisme. Ce sont ces qualités que j'apprécie tout particulièrement.
