Certified Translations – what are they? Do my translations need certification?
Certified translations are translations which are legalised for further use. They are signed by the translator (producing a “sworn” translation), are stamped with our unique agency stamp and are sealed to ensure they are not tampered with after certification. Certification of a document ensures that it will be accepted by any UK government institution or similar official or legal body. Our partners in Ireland (certifiedtranslations.ie) can also certify any document for use in ROI, and our Belfast offices (www.translation-ni.com) can certify translations for use in NI – contact us today to find out more!
You will need to certify your translation if it is to be used for any legal, official or civil purposes. We will guarantee that any translation certified by us will be accepted by any UK, NI or ROI government or legal institution.

What type of translation certification do I need?
There are a number of different types of certified translation in the UK, which include:
- Translator certification: the translation is signed and certified by the translator, and fixed with our unique agency stamp.
- Notarisation / Legalisation: the translator’s signature is certified and attested by a notary, who also signs the document.
- Apostille certification: the notary’s signature and that of the translator are authenticated by fixing to the document with the Apostille stamp of the country in which the document has originated in the Department of Foreign Affairs in that country. We will take care of this for you!
