Certified or Notarized?

Revealing the difference between certified and notarized translation

Certified translation of your legal documents is frequently needed for immigration, foreign university application, and other government proceedings.

It is important to know that this type of translation must be done verbatim and it has to contain an affidavit from the person who did the translation.

An affidavit is a sworn statement in which the translator testifies that the attached translation is a true and accurate translation of the original document.

Since a translation of legal documents is mostly needed to be presented to official government institutions such as courts, immigration departments or universities, it’s necessary to provide a certified, not notarized, translation.

Why, you may wonder?

The requirements for notarized translations are governed by local laws. The laws differ significantly among countries. Therefore, the notarize translation may not be accepted by worldwide government institutions.

A certified translation, as already mentioned, must be the exact translation of a document, and it has to include a sworn, signed affidavit. This type of translation can be simply ordered online. All you need to do is scan your documents and send them to the chosen translation company via email. However, if you prefer to meet the translator in person you take them to a certified translator. Whether you choose online or in-house translation services, always make sure that the translator is certified. This information can be found on their website.

When we talk about the two types of translation services it is important to note that the majority of foreign government bodies require certified, not notarized, translation. Thus, to ensure an acceptance of the translated document, it will be wiser to comply with the regulations and submit a certified translation.
