日本人の私でさえ、それを理解するのは難しいって英語でなんて言うの?

市役所に提出する書類に手こずっていた外国の友達に言う一言です。 「それ」ではなく、 「こういう類いの書類って」や「フォーマルな書類って」といった具体的な言葉を入れたいです。

So, you have a group of documents that need to be read and understood. However, they are written in such a way that they are difficult to understand whether you are a Japanese person or a foreigner (a visitor to Japan). Be that as it may, the documents need to be read and understood. So, you may say: These types of documents are difficult to understand, even for Japanese people. or Whether you are a Japanese person or a foreigner, these types of documents are hard to understand.
読まないといけない書類がたくさんあるのですね。しかし、日本人であっても理解するのが難しいような言葉で書かれていると。とはいえ、その書類を読んで理解しないといけない。 以下のように言えます。 These types of documents are difficult to understand, even for Japanese people. このタイプの書類は、日本人でさえも理解するのが難しい。 Whether you are a Japanese person or a foreigner, these types of documents are hard to understand. 日本人であろうと、外国人であろうと、このタイプの書類は理解するのが難しい。

It is very common in most languages that the written language is a bit different from the spoken language, especially with official documents. Many documents and paperwork from the city hall or any bureaucratic office are written very officially and therefore not in a common language. Unless you work as a government official, the documents may be difficult to completely understand even for a person on native tongue.
ほとんどの言語では、書き言葉(特にオフィシャルな文書に使われるもの)と話し言葉は少し違います。 役所の書類や文書は日常的な言葉で書かれないことが多いです。役人でもない限り、こうした文書を完璧に理解するのは、たとえネイティブでも難しいかもしれません。

The three sentences you see provided above are great ways to express to your listener that the documents they have are are difficult for a Japanese person to understand. In the first sentence you will notice the verb comprehend and in the second sentence you will notice the verb grasp. Both of these words mean to understand. These two words can be used in both formal and informal settings. They would make great additions to your vocabulary!
3例とも、書類について、日本人が理解するのも難しいと伝える場合に使えます。 最初の例文には"comprehend"、二番目の例文には"grasp"が使われています。どちらも「理解する」という意味の動詞です。 この二つの単語は、フォーマルな場でもインフォーマルな場でも使うことが出来ます。ぜひ語彙に加えてください。

To be 'hard' means not easy/difficult To 'understand' means you get the meaning of what you have to do So you could say 'Even Japanese people find those/these documents hard to undersatand'
「hard」は「簡単でない」「難しい」という意味です。 「understand」は「理解する」という意味です。 ですから、以下のように言えます: 'Even Japanese people find those/these documents hard to undersatand.' 〔訳〕そういう(こういう)書類は日本人でもなかなか理解できない。
