Abstract
Although, at first glance, the mono-referential aspect of legal language would not afford affiliation to the structure of the metaphor, as this belongs to the realm of poetry, imagination and invention, the presence of metaphors within the study of law poses a genuine challenge for translators. They have to choose between a literary translation and a procedural pattern based on analogy. This study aims at exposing and analysing the circumstances in which the translation of metaphors triggers difficulties with respect to the common metaphor or the complex metaphor.

Keywords
metaphor, legal translation, literary translation, translation via analogy, common metaphors
