Robert Rechter - Founder
Skill – Precision – Turnaround
CTS Tax & Legal is a company which relies on the experience of its founder, who is not only a former avocat, but who is also a British national and perfectly bilingual. CTS Tax & Legal’s core purpose is to supply top quality legal translation services in the French/English language pair, and within tight deadlines compatible with business imperatives, thus enabling clients to focus on their core business. CTS is a Member of the Société Française des Traducteurs and adheres to the code of professional conduct of SFT.
During his seven years counselling international clients as an avocat, Robert Rechter came to the realization that there was no provision of translation services truly adapted to the needs of the world of business. Indeed, the demand in terms of legal translation has developed intensely over recent years, whereas the services on offer have remained relatively modest and ill adapted to the current world of business, which is dominated by increasing technicality and faster transactions.
It was to this end that Robert Rechter created CTS (Corporate Translation Services) Tax & Legal, a company dedicated to providing legal translation services in the French and English languages. These translations are both reliable and rapid, as they are executed by a former avocat familiar with the world of business and its needs, and designed to provide the peace of mind that executives require so as to be able to concentrate fully on their core business. All translation services are provided by Robert Rechter personally, outsourcing and teamwork remaining exceptional and dependent on circumstances and specific and occasional demands of clients.
Services can include, if the Client wishes, in addition to the translation of the initial document, further translation in the course of complex negotiations which may require the progressive update of the translation as (and when) discussions go forward.
To entrust the translation of your legal documents to a former avocat, who has hands-on knowledge of both the civil and common law legal systems, the business world, and who speaks perfect French and English is the guarantee of a high quality legal translation.
• Translation of all tax and legal documents

CTS Tax & Legal’s fees are based on word count, which is marked up for urgent work.
