You can send us a copy by uploading a scan/photo in Step 3 of the translation booking or from the Contact Us page, send by Whatsapp, or by email ( or post a photocopy of the original certificate to Certified UK Transl. 48 Berkeley House, 14 Wellington Way, London E3 4NG (original not needed in most cases, see below when originals are required). That means it is Faster to order on our website. Please remember that when you submit the translated documents to public organisations, they may want to see the original certificate as well, in which case just enclose your original certificate with the translated and certified documents.

In special circumstances, some public organisations (such as the General Dental Council) require a Certified True Copy* of the original certificate to be stamped along with the translated document. In which case you need to send us the original for our solicitor to make a Certified True Copy* or you can have any solicitor you know make a Certified True Copy.

*Certified True Copies are copies of original certificates which have been verified by a solicitor or notary that the original was compared against the copy and it conforms exactly to the original. He or she will stamp or write such verification on the copy, sign and date it.

Please note that if you require us to Legalise (Apostille) translation of UK certificates at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO),  such as Birth, Marriage, Death, No Impediment to Marry Certificates issued from the UK General Register Office or your local council, Divorce Decree from a UK Court, UK Criminal Record certificates, UK Probates, UK Naturalisation Certificates HAVE to be originals or original extracts. We do not accept copies/scans for such certificates if they are to be legalised (apostilled) by us at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO).

Important! Is the date of issue on your document old and will it be valid for the authority you are sending it to? Check first with the authority whether a more recent document needs to be translated. For example for some DBS Criminal Records and Birth Certificates, it is usually the case that they cannot be older than 6 months for them to be valid.
