How it works
Before ordering a language course, a small investment in TransLegal’s Legal English Audit will tell you where your time and money are best spent. The Legal English Audit is an on-demand diagnostic test of Legal English in a commercial law context set at an intermediate to advanced level covering levels B1‐C1 of the Council of Europe's CEFR scale. The audit tests all four language skills (reading, listening, writing and speaking) and is based on realistic tasks of the kind legal practitioners face.

The reading, listening and writing tests are done online with the writing test graded by a lawyer‐ linguist at TransLegal. The speaking test is conducted by telephone, also by a lawyer‐linguist at TransLegal, and is scheduled at a time convenient for you. The results are delivered by email within 48 hours after the speaking test.
