This app features the translation of legal terminology from Maltese to English, and vice versa; a convenient and practical tool for the Maltese law student and the only one of its kind for the local scenario. The proper use of jargon is indispensable in law studies and research – having this reference guide in your pocket will facilitate complex translations that you will inevitably come across and ensures your usage of correct language through instant results. The benefits of this app, which features automatic updates and push notification support, are yours to enjoy, free of charge.Work on the app started in 2015 by a group of students led by former President Deo Falzon and former VP of Academic Activities James Debono. A database of legal jargon was compiled and double checked. This database was then vetted by a leading translation firm and also complies with the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) terminology.
Rather than resting on their laurels the ELSA Malta team continued to improve the application with new features including multi-lingual support under the new Project Leader, Liza-Marie Cassar.
The user can select the input language or choose to search in both languages simultaneously. The results are delivered as the user types which ensures, very swift content delivery. The app database is also available offline however the app internal terminology automatically checks for an update to the term list when the device is online. This process is carried out automatically without the need of user intervention. The team behind the app is also constantly adding terms as soon as new resources are provided by our project partners.The app is now also accessible from any modern internet browser and now features Maltese, English, Slovenian, French, Turkish, Romanian, Swedish, Spanish and Portuguese translation options.
The add a word feature has now been implemented in all app versions including the web app.When developing the app, compatibility with a wide-range of devices was our primary concern. We have managed to ensure compatibility with a wide range of devices across iOS and ANDROID platforms ranging from old devices running iOS 6 and ANDROID 2.3.3 till the most recent operating system updates. The app is also compatible with smartphones and tablets and supports landscape view on tablets as well.ownload the app and use the Add a word function or just visit our web app on app.elsa.org.mt
