The Types Official Certified Translation Services
An official translation is generally defined as a translation that has been stamped by an authority. The official stamp used to regulate the legality of approved translations is one way of determining whether a document is translated from one language into another. Any translation that has been stamped by an authority is ‘official’. The general requirement is a translation into the appropriate language, stamping from the appropriate authority and a copy of the translation sent to the client. An official translation (for your records) means you get the same translation that is recognized by the courts and government agencies when a document needs to be certified or legalized.
To be used for official purposes within the UK, non-English documents require a Certified Translation. A certified translation is where the translator or translation agency translates and certifies a document with their signature and stamp. We will guarantee the quality of our work for your peace of mind.
What is an official certified translation? There are few types of official translation and we outline below:
A translation statement of truth (Certified Translation) is used to confirm the accuracy of an original document. It’s commonly used by companies that require a translation to be certified by a third party, such as insurance companies, medical professionals and universities. The letter following the standards of the Association of Translation Companies confirms that the translation meets its criteria for accuracy, integrity and professionalism. It usually says something like “We undertook the translation of this document, and confirm that it is accurate, and no changes were made to the original document”. This is the most commonly used official translation in the UK.
The Notary Public will certify the authenticity of the translation by witnessing your signature, stamping it and their embossed seal. These letters are commonly used as an acknowledgement of a true/original document, when applying for a mortgage or bank account, etc… A notarised translation (also known as notarisation of a translation) is often required for official documents and is more formal than a certified translation. Once the translation has been completed, it will then be declared on oath and in writing before a Notary Public that the translated document is a true and accurate translation of the original document. The Notary will then sign and stamp the certifying letter with their embossed seal and signature and add the date. This will be attached to the document to acknowledge that it is genuine.
Sworn Translation or Affidavit
A sworn translation is a non-certified translation that needs to be sworn in front of a qualified solicitor. It is used for official purposes and is also required if an affidavit has been attached. An affidavit is a legal sworn statement in which the translator testifies under oath that the attached translation is a true and accurate translation of the document being translated. Sworn translations are considered to be a legal copy of the original document. If you work with a sworn translator, your document will be stamped with a seal of integrity, ensuring that it is as accurate and true to your original language as possible.
An apostille is a form of certification that has been introduced in 1961 at the Hague Conference on Private International Law. It takes the form of a special stamp placed on the original document itself, ensuring that UK documents are recognised as true and accurate all around the world. Once your document has been legalised by the FCO it can then be used abroad without further need to question its authenticity. The apostille is a form of certification that takes the form of a special stamp placed on the original document itself. The apostille is used in countries where there are multiple governments, for example France and Spain, or when there is a need for documents to be recognised internationally. In the UK, this process is handled by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO), who can legalise a sworn or notarised translation.
Unlike in the UK, many countries have a system of sworn and approved translators; that means these countries they credited sworn translator to provide official document translations. Sworn translations are the preferred method of translation in many countries, including the Brazil, Italy and Spain.
