comment How can I translate “To all to whom these presents shall come, Greeting”?
I have no idea about the legal correctness but 涉及 seems to refer to people mentioned in the document instead of those to whom the document is presented, also the repetition of 位 in the first sentence bothers my ears. I would prefer the 2nd translation.

强 = non-negotiable, brutal, oppressive. 横 = rude, unreasonable. It's metaphorical when used on inanimate concepts just like 'merciless' in English.
