    Features of 'shall'

    1. 'Translators shall be liable for any inaccuracy in the translation.'
    Whom could this phrase belong to - to somebody special (eg. to a person who set rules, eg. to the head of a company) or to any person who has such an opinion?

    2. Can this phrase be conditioned
    ' Translators shall be liable for any inaccuracy in the translation when (if?) they work with documents of such significance.'?

    Thank you in advance.

    I don't know what you mean by "belong to."
    I would expect to see wording like this in a contract made with a translation service.

    I think that Explorer asked: "Who could say that"

    That statement could be made by the boss or could appear in a procedures manual.
