Do I Need a Court-Certified Translation?

Not every legal document has to be translated by a court-certified translator. Likewise, documents in areas other than law do not necessarily have to be translated by non-certified translators. Many people wonder whether they need a certified translation or a non-certified one. They contact us puzzled over the difference between the two. They wonder why one is more expensive than the other. They also ask which languages we cover. In order to determine whether you need a court-certified translation or a non-certified one you must consider the purpose of the translation. Are you taking the translation to a court? Are you using the translations for any other purpose? In general, individuals who wish to submit a foreign-language document to courts must have a court-certified translator execute the translation of the document.

Translators who have the proper qualifications and experience translating documents for legal purposes are familiar with the standard procedure. They translate the document and review their work before submitting it to the client. They also prepare a certification and attach it to the translation. They understand that courts require translation of foreign-language documents to be accompanied by the translator’s declaration.
