What is a certified translation?

Certified Translations

Certified translations can only be produced by certified translators. A certified translator is a unique and reserved title for individuals who have qualified and registered with the association of translators in their state or province, and subscribed to the association's code of professional ethics. Certified translators do NOT need to have their work authenticated by a lawyer or notary public, meaning that unlike other translators, they do not require an affidavit or the seal of a notary public to notarize their documents. Certified translators have a personal stamp, which makes the documents that they translate a legal record.

Translations requiring an Affidavit of Translation OR Notarized Translation

Translations requiring an affidavit can be produced by professional translators AND certified translators (reserved title for individuals who have qualified and registered with the association of translators in their state or province). Professional translators either need to provide an affidavit of translation or a notarized translation. An affidavit of translation is a signed 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 a true 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.

Regular Translations

Regular translations, including documents such as blogs, essays, or similar records that are not required for legal purposes, can be translated by all translators.

Available Certificate Types

Certificate of Translation

A certificate of translation is an electronically signed declaration of the translator that the translation is a true and accurate version of the original text. This is attached to non-certified translations.

Affidavit of Translation

An affidavit of translation is a translator’s declaration stating under oath that the translation is a true and accurate version of the original text. This declaration is signed by both the translator and a commissioner of oaths/notary public.

Due to the current COVID 19 restrictions, some lawyers provide this service over video chat. When choosing this option, please make sure the electronically signed affidavit is accepted by your institution.
