CERTIFIED TRANSLATIONS EXAMPLES

The following are 4 examples of the 4 levels of Certification of Translations.

1. BASIC CERTIFIED TRANSLATIONS

This type of translations certifications is usually required for certificates from a foreign language to be
translated into English for submission to UK organisations. We just attach a copy of your original certificates
to the Certified Translations and when you present the translated certificates to your destination, you
may be asked to submit your original certificates along with the Certified Translations. We also attach
a Certification Declaration including the details of the translator's credentials verifying that it ihas been
accurately translated from the original.

2. SWORN CERTIFIED TRANSLATIONS

This type of translations certifications is usually required for certificates for submission abroad, or for
submission to UK Courts of Law, or some UK agencies requiring a higher level of accuracy and some
Consulates. The original certificates are usually required for sworn certification translations because the
translations and the original certificates (or certified true copy of original certificates*) will be Sworn
Certified in front of a Commissioner for Oaths (Solicitor). We also attach a Sworn Certification of
Translations Declaration (Affidavit) including the translator's professional credentials swearing on oath
that it was accurately translated from the original certificate. This Sworn Certification of Declaration is
also dated and includes the signature of the professional translator and is signed and stamped by the
Solicitor.
*A Certified True Copy of Original Certificate means that the Original Certificate is photocopied, signed & stamped as
a True Copy by a Legal person (usually a Solicitor or Notary Public). You can get a Certified True Copy yourself done
at any solicitor or we can do it for you as part of the Sworn Certification Translations process. Certified True Copies are
NOT applicable to UK Crown Copyright certificates such as UK General Register Office (GRO) Birth, Marriage,
No Impediment to Marry, Death certificates, etc. We can only stamp originals or extracts of originals issued by the GRO.

3. NOTARISED TRANSLATIONS

This type of translations certifications is usually required for certificates issued in the UK or issued in some
other countries to be used in a higher capacity such as Powers of Attorney, Passports for employment
abroad, Academic Qualifications, Declarations of Single Status for marriage abroad, buying property
abroad, opening a company abroad, any other transaction abroad involving commercial activity
or for High Court proceedings and some Consulates.

The original certificate is usually required for Notarised Translations because the translations and the
original certificates will be signed and stamped in front of a Notary Public. We also attach a Notarised
Declaration including the details of the translator's professional credentials swearing on oath that
it is accurately translated from the original. This Notarised Declaration is also dated and includes
the signature of the translator and is signed and stamped by the Notary Public.

Usually, when Notarised Translations arerequired, Original certificates may also need to be Notarized.
In which case, you will need to supply us with the already Notarised Original certificates or request from
us to have your Original Certificates Notarised.

4. LEGALISATION OF TRANSLATIONS (APOSTILLE)

If the certificates areto be submitted abroad, you may also need to have your Sworn or Notarised
Translations legalised at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO). (The FCO will not legalise
Basic Certified translations, they have to bear the signature of either a Solicitor or Public Notary).
Legalisation is the confirmation that a signature, seal or stamp on UK public certificates is genuine.
It does not authenticate the content of the certificates. Please check with whoever you are
submitting the certified translations to whether legalisation of the translations is required.
You can legalise the Sworn or Notarised Translations yourself at the FCO or we can do it on your behalf .

Usually, when Sworn/Notarised Translations are legalised (Apostille), the Original Certificates may
also need to be legalised. In which case, you will need to supply us with your already Legalised
Original Certificates or request from us to have your Original Certificates Legalised. The samples below
show Legalised Sworn Certified Translations.
