Certified Translation

Certified TRANSLATION

Certified translations for smooth international transitions

Official documents need an extra level of accuracy and authenticity in their translations. There’s no allowance for approximate meaning. Instead, every sentence must be translated word for word. Officials can also reject translations that don’t follow their formatting guidelines. Our expert translations will comply with your document's requirements. Get your translated documents approved and navigate bureaucratic processes with ease.

Certifications and Affidavits

What are certified and notarized translations?

Legal or governmental translations may require a statement of accuracy. That signed statement is called a certification. Although there’s no universal format, typically a certification includes:

When a translator signs a statement of accuracy in front of a notary, the document is “notarized.” That notarized statement is called an “affidavit.” The format for an affidavit is much more regulated than for a certification.

Fast Translation Service offers both certifications and affidavits for your official translation needs.

Accurate and authenticated

Save yourself from the frustration of rejected translations

Business or marketing translations are interpreted and subjectively translated to sound as natural as possible. Legal papers, educational transcripts, and governmental documents usually require literal translations. Often, there are strict guidelines for formatting the documents. Plus, some official translations need a certification or affidavit.

These requirements are serious. Officials will reject improperly executed translations. As it is, bureaucratic processes are slow. A rejected translation puts you back a step, wasting more time and money. You could miss important deadlines or opportunities while you retranslate your papers. Instead, save time, money, and frustration. Let our experts handle your certified translations correctly the first time.

Case Study

Alma, a single mom of three, couldn’t sleep. Her marriage ended three years ago, leaving her a never-ending international custody battle. Now, matters were coming to a head with a crucial court hearing. The volume of legal paperwork was staggering, and every document needed a notarized translation. If the translations didn’t follow the guidelines, the court could reject her evidence. Alma also worried about the sensitive nature of the documents. The court needed to understand the nuances of her case, or she would lose custody of her children.

Alma found peace of mind with a team of experienced, confidential translators. They were already familiar with the requirements of custody cases and notarized translators. Throughout the job, they worked efficiently, keeping Alma updated on their progress. When they had questions, they reached out to Alma for clarification. Other times they offered helpful suggestions. Alma entered the courtroom with confidence and finally wrapped up her case successfully.
