Translation for GDPR

The EU’s new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on 25 May 2018. This meant that all companies in the EU now have to implement new data process to ensure both they and their suppliers are in full compliance.

GDPR is all about providing clear and transparent information regarding the collection and processing of data. It is now essential that all businesses take control of their activity as failure to do so can result in a hefty fine. For some businesses this may require the translation of policy documents for clients and suppliers.

An extract from the official EU guidance on GDPR reads:

“Where the information is translated into one or more other languages, the data controller should ensure that all the translations are accurate and that the phraseology and syntax makes sense in the second language(s) so that the translated text does not have to be deciphered or re-interpreted. A translation in one or more other languages should be provided where the controller targets data subjects speaking those languages.”

All companies now need to ensure that their information on GDPR is translated by a company with the correct legal knowledge, this ensures that your information is presented clearly and correctly.
