A Translation Contract is an agreement whereby one party called the translator renders translation services or agrees to translate one language to another language in favor of another party or the client. A Translation Contract can cover a wide variety of materials or works with contents that are required by the client to be translated from one language to another. Such materials or works can include documents, books, articles, and even audio or video files.

It must be noted that unless otherwise agreed upon by the parties, the ownership over the original works or materials belongs to the client while the resulting work of the translation which is also called a derivative work, belongs to the translator.

This written agreement will lay down the terms and conditions of the translation services and will prevent the parties from deviating from their agreement and avoid misunderstandings as to the manner by which the translation services will be rendered.
