Business Partnership Agreement

North Carolina

Asked on Sep 28, 2023

Multilingual business partnership agreement?

I am looking to enter into a business partnership with a foreign partner and we would like to ensure that both parties are aware of the terms of the agreement. We want to make sure that the agreement is in our native language as well as the language of our partner in order to ensure that both parties have the same understanding of the agreement. We are looking for advice on how to draft a multilingual business partnership agreement.

Generally speaking, contracts should be in a language that all the parties understand. However, many legal terms do not have exact translations in other languages. Therefore, many businesses that use multilingual contracts will identify one language as the contract's "official" language. Anyone who is considering using a multilingual business contract, including a business partnership agreement, should also consider using translators who are well versed in "legalese" in the languages to be used in the contract.
