Legal translation between Arabic and English is considered to be an arduous endeavor due to inherent discrepancies. This thesis presents the main features of English and Arabic legal discourse in an attempt to extract the main differences. Accordingly, this research study explores the constraints encountered when translating eleven Saudi legal texts from Arabic into English. The main concern is to determine whether the translation of such legal types is source-oriented or target-oriented. The analysis conducted provokes the conclusion that Foreignization and Domestication strategies are used in parallel in order to overcome the presented constraints.
