Legal Discourse across Cultures and Systems

Globalization and harmonization are dominant trends in international arbitration. As a result of the globalization of international trade, the number of international disputes submitted to arbitration has increased tremendously in recent decades, with actors from all continents speaking a multitude of languages. This chapter aims to show that, despite the growing use of English, translation continues to make a significant contribution, not only to the globalization, but also to the harmonization of international arbitration. This is important because, as arbitration experts say, the future of international arbitration lies in its harmonization. Though mostly behind the scenes, translation plays a vital role in numerous aspects of international arbitration, including the translation of legal documents for the proceedings, the translation of national arbitration laws into world languages, the translation of institutional procedural rules and standard arbitral clauses, the production of multilingual instruments of international arbitration law, and others.

Keywords:   globalization, harmonization, multilingual, English, arbitration laws, world languages
