A certified translation can only be produced by a certified translator (reserved title for individuals who have qualified and registered with the provincial association of translators in their province, such as ATIO).
An affidavit is a document where the translator swears in the presence of a lawyer, or other legal authority with the power to administer oaths, that the translation is an accurate representation of the contents of the original document.
A notarized translation is produced when the notary public provides his/her seal on the affidavit of translation.
A declaration of translation is a signed document affirming the accuracy of the translation.
