Certified Translation Services UK – All You Need To Know

Certified Translation Services UK – All You Need To Know

Are you in the UK looking for a certified translation of your documents but don’t know what the thing is? This post is meant to educate you about certified translations, and how you can get it without falling for the trap where agencies serve mediocre translations masqueraded as certified translations only to find, in the end, that they’re not valid.

This is how our translators like to define certified translation …

“Certified translation is a translation officially stamped and signed by the accredited translation agency, issued with a ‘Statement of Truth’, declaring that the translation is complete, accurate and a true representation of the original document. In short, a certified translation is a translation the accuracy of which is certified.”

Individuals who’re from non-English speaking countries living in the United Kingdom and planning to apply for documents like passports in their home country often require certified translations of birth certificate, marriage certificate, academic qualifications, etc. while applying for, say, a passport, from English to the language of the country in question.

So what certified translations would entail if you’re presently living in the UK but applying for a passport in the country of your origin is that you will have to get documents obviously in English translated to the native language of your home country.

Or simply that you were on a vacation to some non-English speaking country and got married. As you come back to the United Kingdom you will need to produce before officials the marriage certificate in the official language of the country, which is English. As a certified document translator based in the UK, Locate Translate steps in to provide fast and tailored certified translation service to meet your needs.

  • The date the translation was carried out.
  • Translator’s or representative of the agency’s full name and contact details along with a stamp and signature.

So, in a nutshell, you might want to know what is a certified translation, which we will try to answer next.

What Is A Certified Translation? Do You Need One?

Simply put, a certified translation is an officially recognised translation of a wide variety of documents, ranging from birth to marriage certificates to academic transcripts, accompanied by the signed, stamped and dated ‘Statement of Truth’ issued by the language service provider.

That said, the next big question is do you need a certified translation? If ‘Yes’ when do you need one?

You need certified translations when dealing with legal documents, such as birth, marriage and academic/qualification certificates, if you’re an individual/person, requesting translation on personal behalf.

But, if you’re looking for business translations of contracts and company incorporation documents, most certainly, you need certified translation services. 

Most of the time, certified translations happen to be utterly confusing for clients who have no idea what type of certified translation they might need, whether it’s sworn, notarised or legalised (Apostille) translations.

That brings us to the next topic, types of certified translations.

Different Types Of Certified Translations?

The different types of certified translations we usually come across and need, include:

  • Standard Certified Translation
  • Notarized Translation
  • Sworn Translation
  • Apostille Translation

Let’s take each type one by one, beginning with Standard Certified Translation.

Standard Certified Translation

One of the prominent certified translations in the UK, a standard certified translation is by far the most self-sufficient one to serve all legal purposes in the United Kingdom.

The full legal use it guarantees makes it a widely available service.

What happens in standard certified translation is that the translation agency in the UK officially signs and stamps the translation, and furnishes alongside the translation copy a cover letter, containing all the details and serves as the ‘Proof of Accuracy’.

Notarized Translation

Though similar in many ways to standard certified translation, Notarized translation has one crucial difference, which you need to keep in mind. The difference is that Notarized translation is stamped and signed in the presence of a public notary or solicitor. 

The notary will also sign and provide an official seal to ascertain the legality of the translated documents.

Sworn Translations

Sworn translation is different from other types of certified translations in that it requires a linguist’s testimony. The linguist or translator who undertakes the translation will have to testify to the accuracy of translation before a public notary or solicitor.

Shortest to say, the linguist is required to provide testimony, assuring that he/she truthfully translated the original document in full. Often, governments outside the United Kingdom seek Sworn translations from individuals and businesses. 

 Apostille Translation

If you’re submitting documents overseas, what you might need is an Apostille translation, which, in practice though the same as Notarized translation, has one serious difference that you should know.

The difference is that translated documents are sent over for validation to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Apostille translation is common in Hague Convention-abiding countries.

When Do You Need A Certified Translation?

To answer in simple terms, you will need certified translations if you’re a foreigner – immigrant, student, defendant or prosecutor – and have to present foreign language documents to an immigration service agency, a regulatory authority, a court of law, or for that matter, an educational institution. 

Within certified translations also, requirements vary from one country to another, one institution to another. Some will ask for certified as well as notarized translation. Others require the Just the inclusion translator’s professional qualifications may suffice in other cases. 

Where Can Certified Translations Be Used?

Suffice it to say here that certified translations are imperative for legal purposes. That means you will need it when processing for immigration, submitting college applications, business filings and dealings. 

Many real-life situations necessitate certified translations. A wide variety of documents need a certified translation, including standard certificates, official papers, legal documents, business and commercial papers, personal certificates, such as birth, marriage and death certificates, to name a few.

From the above discussion it’s already clear that you certainly need a certified translation, but what we’re dealing with now is when do you need it?

People from all walks of life – students, businesses, professionals, immigrants – when do I need a certified translation of documents?

Reasons to officially certify your translations before it’s authorized as a legal document are many.  Foremost of which is its use for legal purposes. Therefore, whenever you need documents for legal purposes you will need certified translation.

Let’s suppose for a minute you’ve emigrated to the United Kingdom from India and have a son who was born here. Obviously, his birth certificate, issued in the UK, is in the official language of England that is English.

Let’s assume you wanted to apply for the Indian passport for your son, which entails presenting before officials the birth certificate in the native language of your home country [Hindi in the case of India]. For this, you couldn’t just translate the birth certificate from English to Hindi all by yourself and expect officials to accept it as a valid document.

Instead, what you need in such cases is certified translation carried out by a reliable translation agency. Similarly, the contracts and patents require authorisation through official translation. 

Certified Translations for Legal Paperwork 

Let’s consider the case of legal paperwork.

In the domain of law, you come across documented files of court hearings or trials. For such legal paperwork, a certified translation is imperative.

Therefore, for the sort of legal paperwork, such as trial transcripts, evidence, court hearings (recorded or documented) in another language, certified English translations of any non-English documents is necessary, especially if the documents are to be used for official purposes, court proceedings in the present case.

Official use of the legal documents counted above is tied to the certified translations of such documents.

Certified Translations for Immigration

The second most common situation where the certified translation is imperative is that of immigration.

If you’re about to apply for a permit for a temporary visit to a foreign country or seek permission to migrate permanently, know that the first thing required of you is certified translations of documents. 

The thing is immigration bureau of the country you want to migrate to will ask for documents. However, documents that are in a language other than the official language of the country you’re emigrating to are required to be translated into the language native to the country. 

Not just translated but certified as well.

Individuals moving to foreign countries need a full and certified official translation of documents not written in English. 

Even the visual appearance of original and translated documents should perfectly match when performing certified translations.

To say the least, a certified translated document should be the exact clone of the original one! But, of course, in the language official to the country, you’re planning the migration to.

Certified Translations of your Qualifications

First and foremost, get all your non-English documents, such as qualification certificates, transcripts, diplomas, etc. translated and certified by a reliable agency like Locate Translate.

You will need it when applying to study in the UK, for example. Doesn’t matter where you come from or what subjects do you want to study when applying for admission to a foreign university. 

As long as you’ve your non-English documents accurately translated into English, or the language native to the country you’re applying for admission to the university, you will face no problem securing it. 

Can I Translate and Certify My Own Documents?

Many people have this question that can they translate and certify their own documents given that they’re fluent speakers in both the source and target language. 

Just because you know a language or two does not qualify you to translate the documents and then certify them on your own, despite you being, as you claim, a polyglot! This is not the way certified translations work!

Documents due to be presented before officials or public authorities have to bear the seal, stamp and signature of an accredited translation agency registered with the government, which Locate Translate is. 

So, don’t do it on your own lest you risk losing the legality of your documents. Much better would be to get in touch with a reliable translation agency like Locate Translate to do the job of officially translating your documents for you.

Commonly Used Documents That Require Certified Translations

A wide array of documents need certified translation to and from English when presenting to the English and non-English authorities, respectively. In case you’re wondering what are some of the common documents that require certified translations, here’s a list:

  • Birth Certificate
  • Death Certificate
  • Marriage Certificate
  • Divorce Certificate
  • Academic Transcripts, Diplomas, Certificates
  • Driver’s License
  • Adopting Papers
  • Insurance Documents
  • Medical Reports
  • Immigration Documents
  • Transcripts of Court Trials & Proceedings
  • Documents Required for Visa Applications
  • Legal Documents for Court Cases

A Practical Example to Understand Certified Translation?

A student named Mark graduated from a Russian university and now wants to enrol at one of England’s top universities for higher studies.

To be able to enrol for higher studies in England, Mark would have to do the certified translation from French into English of all his documents.

Mark got in touch with Locate Translate and received in no time a certified translation of all his French documents to English. Once Mark completes his higher studies in English and prepares to return to Russia, he will again need a certified translation of his documents, but this time from English to French. 

But this time he knows where to go for quality and affordable certified translation services and will happily turn to Locate Translate that offers certified translation in 30+ languages.

Is Translation Agency Must for Certified Translations?

If you need certified translation services, it certainly is a good idea to deploy the expertise of a translation agency in the field of certified translations. Going your way might prove disastrous in the long run and take the wind out of your case!

Particularly, in situations where so much is at stake, including when immigrating to another country, launching your company in a foreign country, or applying for a foreign college/university, where rules and regulations are often stringent and need expert guidance.

Think of trial evidence. Can you deal with such complicated yet delicate paperwork on your own without legal and linguistic consul? I don’t think so! Therefore, you must bring onboard a reputed translation agency to help you with certified translations of documents.

IS Certified Translation Always Necessary?

No, the certified translation isn’t necessary always and in all circumstances. If you need to have some document translated for a personal purpose, a normal translation without having to certify it would suffice. 

Suppose, you want family letters translated into another language, this doesn’t require certification of any sort. After all, you’re not sending personal letters to government authorities.

However, for official purposes, the certified translation is an absolute must whether you’re in the UK or anywhere else in the world.

Is Document Translation Service Indispensable?

Document translation service is no longer an option, or an open choice, it has become indispensable in today’s world. As an individual, as a business, whoever you’re, you require certified translation. Organizations demand it, government institutions want it, courts and law enforcement agencies seek it. So if you’re asked to furnish documents duly translated into the language officials want, you can’t do it without document translations.

When we talk of translation we don’t mean some software that can translate documents but real certified human translators who undertake the task of translating your documents. The benefits of having a person translate your official documents are innumerable. The foremost being, your documents won’t be shabbily translated into the target language but with diligence, all of its content will be translated without distorting the original context of its contents.

Also, translation agencies provide you with a Certificate of Accuracy, duly signed, and vouching for the accuracy of the translated document. After that, nothing can stop your document from being considered an official document. Hence, giving it the weightage to substitute in place of the original document, not in the target language.

Premium Certified Translation Service

So what you need is a premium certified translation service that can offer translation service in almost all prominent languages of the world. To give it more weight, it is good to look for an agency that offers a Certificate of Accuracy, too. It can be a simple document issued on the company’s official letterhead with the translator’s signature, date of issuance, stamped and sealed, as part of certification.

It might appear to be an easy task when looked at from a distance, but it isn’t. Only certified translators who happen to be language experts can translate your official documents with accuracy. Look, you’re not getting the official translation of documents done for utterly no reason.  Instead, you need these documents for official purposes and are therefore very significant. Hiring translation companies like Locate Translate make sense! You get reliable, accurate, and correct translations done at superfast speed with excellent customer service.

Many have this delusion that they can get the software to do the task for them but that simply is not viable, at least for now. Getting a professional to do it is recommended for solid reasons. One, translation is not about turning words from one language into another, as done on a word-to-word basis. It certainly is more than that, for it necessitates that translators incorporate subtle nuances of the target language into the translated document and ensure that the original message is communicated correctly, in a flawless manner.

When Do you Need Translation Document Services?

You need document translations when in situations such as immigration cases, international commercial litigations, divorce decrees, and government bids. Moreover, as students when asked for translations of transcripts, you can’t do without official translation of documents because you’re being asked for certified document translations. You can’t take it lightly or overlook its significance especially when it is required for admission procedure.

Let’s breakdown when and where document translation is a must:

  • Academic Transcripts / Diplomas
  • Adoption Records
  • Marriage Certificate
  • Birth Certificate
  • Resumes 
  • Driving License
  • Divorce Certificates
  • Employee Contracts
  • Death Certificate
  • Foreign Patents
  • Foreign Bank Statements
  • Green Cards
  • Immigration Documentation
  • Passports
  • Visas
  • Wills and Trusts
  • Legal Documents

Best Way to Get Official Translation of Documents?

Official documents require a flawless translation. Of course, you don’t want your documents rejected when submitted to a university or government organization due to poor translation. As long as institutions and organizations retain the right to reject any document submitted, you have to be careful with document translations. 

Are you being asked to provide translated documents? Then what you need is certified translation to have your documents translated into the target language. Along the way, it also serves as a legal record if professionally done. Whenever and wherever you’ve required it for official use, without any worry or fear of it getting rejected, you can use it. In addition, the best way to get a translation service is to hire a reputed and certified translation agency like Locate Translate.

This way, you can make your documents reliable and worthy to be produced for official purposes. When it comes to the agency you’re partnering with, make sure that it strictly follows industry standards set by various organizations such as ESOMAR, a prominent market research body, and BHBIA, a leading healthcare-related market research association. 

Moreover, see to it that the agency you’re working with adheres to the government-set standards for translation so that its certified document translations are valid worldwide. Whenever you submit these documents to the government or non-government organizations, they should accept them and consider their legal documents.

If required, get all your translations certified by opting for accredited document translators only who can guarantee the precision and accuracy of the translation. So, if you are an individual or an organization in need of document translation services, choose Locate Translate, for its certified document translations are accepted and valid across the globe and have never been rejected or labelled invalid.

Finest Translators, Exceptional Accuracy

Every organization or individual aims to ensure the exceptional accuracy of documents, but how exactly can one achieve such a feat, you might ask? Well, for that to happen, the only prerequisite is that you need translators who have impeccable training in the target language, or more clearly put, are native speakers of the target language. Additionally, the translators also need to have a proficient grasp of the source language so that they understand the message efficiently.

In other words, for translating a marriage certificate to English, a translator who will do it in the best possible manner is undoubtedly a native English speaker. But, he’s efficient in the target language, right?  What about his skills in source language? Let’s suppose the document is in Hindi, an Indian language. Can a person who’s proficient in English but not so in Hindi translate it to English as accurately as required?

I doubt it. What that implies, a translator needs to have proficiency in both languages. Or else, the agency should have other linguists do the job collaboratively. Mostly, if you work with certified translators, they have a thorough understanding of both the native and source language. 

Proofreading and Editing

The benefits of letting an agency do the job are many. Proofreading and editing rank higher among all the benefits for obvious reasons. Since the documents needing translation have to be produced for official purposes, the room for errors and mistakes is negligible. Even a minute mistake could have it rejected by officials. Therefore, to ensure the accuracy of documents being translated, the agency’s in-house translators cross-check all the documents for errors and mistakes before handing them over.

Then with the translation agency, you get speed, accuracy, and quality translations done at affordable prices. Shortest to say, translation agencies are a boon, not a bane. They can do your job without compromising on accuracy or quality of translation. As a result, you can submit your documents worry-free.

So whether you need an official translation of documents for government offices, medical institutions, immigration services, financial services, academic institutions, legal services, or for any other department, the best thing to do is let an agency like Locate Translate do the job for you!

Documents that Often Require Translation?

Document translations have become a necessity in today’s globalized world. With borders opening for people, students, workers, professionals travel the world to reap the benefits of globalization. And in its wake, it has created a tremendous demand for official translation of documents. Without this, it is impossible to make your mark anywhere else in the world.

If you’re a student, Academic Records are often translated documents. So before even thinking of joining an international university, make sure that your documents are in the same language as that of the university. If that’s not the case, get your Academic Records translated at the earliest. 

The same holds for Adoption Papers, which often require translation document service. Then there are Birth Certificates, Marriage Certificates, Divorce Decrees, and more, which need translations from time to time. For someone moving to a different country, he needs plenty of documents translated. For example, Immigration Papers, Police Records, etc. Most importantly, medical document translation needs special care because of the complexity of medical terminology, as compared to translating marriage certificates to English.

Business Document Translation Service – Why and How

As said earlier, it has never been easier to expand your business to faraway places. The only barrier to that was the linguistic divide, which has been bridged successfully by translation service providers like Locate Translate.  

Therefore, if you’re part of a business that is expanding globally, you need to keep in mind that consumers want businesses, especially international businesses, to interact and speak with them in their native language. Of course, only by knowing and speaking their tongue can a business connect with such consumers!

As a business, you need a document translation service that helps you connect with your target audience. So how do you do that? You do it by hiring a translation agency that has certified translators on board who can bring precision to the process.

You need an agency that listens to your instructions and implements the same verbatim. You need an agency that has proficient translators working with them, who are experts in multiple languages. Moreover, you need an agency that deploys the best technology and adheres to the international standards of the industry and best practices and offers translation services of the highest standards.
