What is Considered "Certified"?

A translation is deemed “certified” where it was completed in one of the following situations:

Do I Need a Certified Translation?

There are a number of reasons as to why you may need a document to be officially translated and certified. Generally any document that needs to be translated will be used for legal purposes and will therefore have to be certified.

For instance, the types of documents that normally require certification include birth certificate, marriage certificates or documents intended for official use, such as contracts or patents.

Our fully complaint translation service includes a declaration by Locate Translate and our accreditation to translate and certify the document. We confirm that the translation is a true, accurate and professional translation of the original document and include our London headquarters contact details as required by law. The certification stamp also include the original signature of the approved project manager who was responsible and handled the translation project.

Apostille Translations

An Apostille translation is typically required when presenting documents overseas. It is the same procedure as a notarised translation however with an apostille translation, it requires the document to be validated by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. These types of translations are valid for all countries abiding by the Hague Convention.

If you are not sure if you need this type of translation certification let us know and we will be happy to assist. We work closely with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and are able to provide translated documents with the Apostille as required.

Notarized Translation

In some instances, you may be asked for a notarized translation. This is a further certification process and the difference is that it will be stamped in front of a solicitor or public notary. They will provide a signature and official seal to legalise the translations.

In most cases, this is not required, and only certified translations are required. If you are not sure let us know and we will be happy to assist.

Sworn Translations

Sworn translations are another type of translation certification. These methods confirm that the linguist has carried out the translation truthfully and the translator must do this in front of a solicitor or public notary.

Most of the time sworn translators are completed outside of the UK. In the UK officially approved language agencies such as Locate Translate are able to provide certified translations.
