Certified translation

You may be told that your translation needs to be “certified” by a professional translator or translation agency. The definition of a certified translation may vary depending on the laws of the country concerned.

The translated documents should consist of three main parts: the translation, a copy of the document in the original language, and the company’s special seal for translations. Each page of the translation should be stamped separately. The translation may also require a statement signed and stamped by the translation company to affirm that the translated text is an accurate and complete rendering of the original source document.

As well as a signature and a stamp, the translator or translation agency is also expected to add the date, and their contact information.
Make sure you also check to see if additional documents (such as a copy of the translation company’s business license) are required.
