Summary/Abstract: This article is devoted to the legal liability of both sworn translators and translators who provide translation services without having to pass the relevant exam. The aim of the article was to thoroughly analyze the obligations and responsibilities of individual translators. The article discusses the status and legal regulations regarding each translator and the scope of services provided by them. In addition, both civil liability, which applies to all translators, as well as penalties and professional liability of sworn translators, are explained. The issues of responsibility towards authors of original works, on the basis of which translators create separate dependent works, are also presented. The analysis is a compilation of a broad catalog of penalties, possible claims and obligations of translators, with the aim of showing that only by knowing well their rights and obligations, resulting from both applicable laws and separately regulated ethical norms, as well as fulfilling them reliably, translators can avoid liability to the disciplinary board or civil liability.
