Frequently Ask Questions

What is Notarised Translation?

Notarized translations are official translations that have been certified by a notary public. These translations are commonly required for legal, official, or government purposes in the United Kingdom. Notarization involves verifying the accuracy and authenticity of the translation and attaching an official stamp or seal to the document. Notarized translations provide assurance that the translated document is a true and accurate representation of the original.

How long will it take to process my documents?

Locate Translate offers a 2-3 days standard turnaround or an express turnaround of 24 hours. However, both options will be mainly reliant on the number of words and level of certification required. We advise our clients to certify their documents in advance before proceeding with Notarization.

What Level if Certification Do I Need?

Each authority and country have different requirements. It is advisable that you check with the authority requesting the translation of what level of certification they will require. Locate Translate can check this for you as long as all details are provided.

Can I have a Certification with an already Translated Document

We cannot provide you with a declaration on any translation that we have not carried out ourselves. Therefore we need to re-translate the document. If however the original document is already in the required language and you only need the service of a Solicitor or Notary Public, please contact us and discuss your requirements directly.

Legalisation/Apostille of Translations

When utilizing British documents abroad for business or personal purposes, it may be necessary to undergo a process of legalization or obtain an Apostille (an authenticity stamp) for official recognition and acceptance. The legalisation or Apostille provided by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office serves as a guarantee of the authenticity of the translated document. In English, the term ‘Apostille’ is commonly used to denote the process of legalizing a document for international use. Currently, most documents originating from the United Kingdom can undergo legalization as long as they bear the original signature, stamp, or seal from an authorized UK public entity. In certain cases, photocopies of specific documents may also be accepted. For further information, please feel free to inquire with us.

How to get Notarised Translation?
