What is a Notarised Translation?

The foremost question that we get asked: what is a notarised translation? Let’s try to answer it for you in a simple language.

The stamp added to the translated document by the notary authenticates its use as legal in foreign countries. Here at Locate Translate, we can assign an official notary to process notarised translation on your behalf.

Are Certified and Notarised Translations Different? If ‘Yes’ Then How Do They Differ?

On the face of it, the difference lies in who carries it out. Certified translations are carried out by an official translator. Notarised translations, on the other hand, require a notary or solicitor to authorise and approve the translation of a document. While certified translations are required in most cases, there are occasions where authorities in some countries require you to provide an extra level of certification with your translated document in order to legalise it.

What Documents Need Notarisation?
