What is Apostille?

An Apostille is an official certificate attached to a translation that helps legitimise or validate the legality of the documents in almost all countries signatories to the Apostille Convention. Once Apostilled, the translated document needs no further legalising push to be recognised in a foreign country.

What is Apostille/Legalised Translation?

Apostille service, also called legalised translation, is used to certify notarized documents from countries, such as Australia, Germany, France, India, USA, countries from EU signatories to the Apostille Convention. In essence, it is akin to translation notarized domestically, but with a difference that it can be used on an international level as well. 

Here at Locate Translate, we’re a top provider of London legalisation services. We follow ISO 9001 quality management procedures and know exactly how different types and levels of certifications work to offer clients premium Apostille/legalised translation services.

Countries That Ask For An Apostille

In case you were wondering which countries will ask for an Apostille, here’s the answer. Countries that are members of the Hague Convention necessarily ask for and use certified Apostille. Other than that, not all countries ask for it. 

At the heart of the creation of the Apostille by the member countries was the singular motive to streamline the use of translations as legally valid documents. Consequently, the efforts have simplified the legalisation process and added to the acceptance of such documents as legal and legitimate.

For example, attaching to the birth or marriage certificate (for that matter to any document) of a person an Apostille affixed by a government-designated official will require no further legalisation or certification on part of the one submitting the document to another Hague Convention member country anywhere in the world. 

The main purpose why we offer Apostille service is to ensure documents legalised or Apostilled and affixed with an Apostille stamp UK by Locate Translate are accepted by government departments, institutions worldwide. That’s the value we aim to bring to our clients who trust and rely on our Apostille service.

What are Apostille Translation Services?

Apostille translation service is the legal translation of documents where they go through various stages of certification culminating in Apostille being affixed to your translations. Why does that even matter, you might ask? Well, after it has been  Apostilled, your document becomes a legitimate, legally valid document, one you can use for official purposes in any country part of the Hague Convention.

Why Do I Need Apostille Document Translation Services?

Presenting your documents to the officials of various countries isn’t possible with Apostille document translation services. So it’s high time that you’ve your documents Apostilled in various languages if you’re applying for, for example, to the foreign universities in various countries. Apostille document translation is a necessity in cases like these, and can’t be done away with.

What are the Steps for an Apostille Translation?

Apostille translation can be easily done in 3-4 steps depending on the document to be Apostilled and the country requiring it. Anyway, the following are common steps of a complete Apostille translation.

  • In the first step, the document to be Apostilled is translated before it’s sent for certification.
  • In the second step, the translated document is notarized, kickstarting the certification process.
  • In the third step, an Apostille is being prepared to be attached with the notarized translation of the original.
  • An Apostille certificate is issued by the competent and accredited official, completing the Apostille translation.

Does Apostille Need to Be Translated?

Yes, you may need to translate the Apostille as well. But what’s the condition for that, or in what circumstances do you need one, let discuss further.

If the Apostille you’ve been provided in the country of your present residence is written in the native language of that country, which is different to the language spoken in the receiving country, then you must translate the Apostille first.

But you must keep in mind that only a qualified translator can translate the Apostille in the manner in which it’s accurate and acceptable to the authorities of the receiving country.

Which Level of Certification Do I Need?

Honestly, there’s no straightforward answer to that, except that it depends on the receiving country and authority or institution you’re submitting the Apostilled document to. Remember that requirements change from one country to another, and change with time as well. Therefore, the best thing to do as far as the level of certification is concerned is to consult the authority, country, or institute requesting the Apostille translation of your documents regarding the level of certification before requesting Apostille translation service for the same.

How Do I Send the Documents for Apostille UK?

At Locate Translate, we can work as comfortably with scanned copies as we do with original or photocopies of original documents. Sending is easy and hassle-free with email. So you can email us the scanned copy or upload one directly via our contact form. However, we don’t rule out the possibility of originals completely because we might need them when carrying out Apostilled or Legalised translation. Mostly the documents that need to be sent in original include Criminal Record Disclosures, documents related to the Court of Law, and UK Registry Office issued documents, but only if such documents need Apostilled or Legalised translation. Once we’re done with the translation and certification process, you will receive back the documents via post or you may choose to collect the documents in person, who knows.

Understanding Apostille Translation Services

As you plan to migrate from one country to another, you should know that emigration entails loads of documentation to be translated and certified by the accredited translation agency for it to be valid in the receiving country. Not being able to do so is not even an option because that would mean failure to adhere to the rules and regulations of the country you want to migrate to. That implies you’ll most certainly be barred from entering the country you had chosen as your destination. 

For the record, let us make it clear that Apostille translation isn’t required only when you’re migrating, but for the sake of convenience, we’ve chosen emigration as a relatable example most of us are familiar with. Anyway, with Apostille translation services provided by Locate Translate, you can easily translate and certify all sorts of documents for Apostille translation and present the same to the authorities of foreign countries. 

The process isn’t as tedious as it used to be, but still, for most of the people who’ve no formal understanding and knowledge about the various facets of Apostilles, including their governing rules, regulations, and procedures, find it an extremely difficult and uphill task. This is where translation agencies make a difference since we keep abreast of all the latest rules, quality procedures, and other such things different countries want individuals and businesses requiring Apostille translations to abide by. 

Much of the process, it’s true, has been streamlined to a greater extent following the Hague Convention, which was an important event, a moment in time that revolutionized how we legalise the documents produced in one country and make them equally valid in another country without freaking out the citizens. The event paved the way for a procedure that made recognizing legal documents from one country in another much easier and less complicated. And the procedure we’re talking about was the Apostille translation.

What Does Apostille Mean?

An apostille is a certificate that is attached to a translated legal document to make it valid, legal, legitimate in the receiving country or make it presentable to the foreign authorities. Apostilles certify notarized documents from the country of origin, hence make them authorised for use in the receiving country.

It has been a key development in the realm of translation that made international paperwork easier to do by significantly reducing the oversight requirements because once Apostilled, there remains nothing to add further certification to your documents. Shortest to say, Apostille translation is enough on its own to make your documents legal.

Only a relevant, competent and accredited authority has the authority to Apostille certificates and documents with their signature and Apostille stamp. The officials assigned the task to do so are designated by the governments of the respective countries, often found in the embassies and other places, such as courts.
