Conversely, language may also turn out to be a barrier, especially when it is necessary to overcome international and intercultural borders. The necessity to harmonize the European Union's legislation and strong trends of economic globalisation lead to a number of different problems. What should have priority in cases of language ambiguity? A perhaps incorrect translation into a national language or the English original version? In what way are international laws adapted to legal institutions of a particular nation?
These questions underline that there is a close connection between linguistics and jurisprudence, between language and law.
