Authentic Text

Authentic Text

 

text of a document that corresponds in content to a text in another language and that is equally valid. In international law, the term is used in connection with international treaties. The text of a treaty may be worked out and adopted in one language, but its authenticity is established in two or more languages. If a treaty is written in two or more languages, then in accordance with the general rule its text in each language is considered equally authentic—that is, they are equally genuine and have equal validity. However, the treaty may provide that in the event of differences in interpretation, preferential force is to be given to the text in the language (or languages) indicated directly in the treaty.
