  Minutes are official written transcriptions of meetings held with a view to reaching agreements, developing strategies or drafting contracts. They are especially frequent in the sphere of real estate, in which many players (lawyers, construction companies, notaries, investors, architects, decorators, engineers) are bound to meet frequently and join forces to complete vast projects. These meetings are often international and it is of particular importance that the translation of such reports be accurate and without the slightest error.
  The translation of minutes in the sphere of real estate carries with it its own specific problems. The same can certainly be said of others areas of translation. However, translation in this field presents very particular characteristics.
  Knowledge of various translation procedures constitutes the very foundation of a translator's technical skill. In the translation of reports, there are various dimensions to that skill. The translator must know the procedures that will allow him, first of all, to grasp the remit of the text, to grasp the meaning of the text and, finally, to express that remit and that meaning in the target text, in accordance with the norms and uses of the language of the receptor culture.
  It often happens that a client who is unfamiliar with the legal content of an original document entrusts the translation thereof to a person who does not have the right credentials to be up to the task. This obviously leads to untold disasters for a construction project as a whole.
