Sworn Translations

A sworn translation (also called a public, legal, official, or certified translation) of a document is endorsed by the signature and seal of a Sworn Translator who is authorized by the Foreign Office to translate official documents. A sworn translation shows that the document translation is genuine, and these translations are regarded as having formal status by the authorities, which is hugely important for the success of any visa application.

Certified translations are important in various legal proceedings and filings for court systems and government agencies. Many government agencies require a translation to be certified before they will accept a particular document as valid.
