Legal Translation

Active Languages takes care of all forms of legal translation, whether it be a will, birth or death certificate often requested for inheritance matters overseas, marriage certificate, deeds for buying or selling property abroad, bank statements, visas, certificates etc. Instead of being sent by email, any certified translation is sent as an original document by recorded delivery.

The main thing to note when it comes to legal translations is whether you need it to be certified or sworn. Let us explain:

Certified translation

A certified translation is a translation completed by a certified translator whereby the translator puts their seal or stamp on each page of the completed translation to certify that it has been completed accurately and to the best of their ability. Certified translators have to be part of an official body of linguists to provide certified translations.

Sworn translation

A sworn translation is a translation completed by a sworn translator whereby the translator puts their seal or stamp on each page of the completed translation to certify that it has been completed accurately and to the best of their ability. Sworn translators must undergo a process of accreditation to be approved by legal or governmental bodies to produce sworn translations. Sworn translations carry legal weight and are for use in court or during legal proceedings.

When it comes to legal proceedings, we always recommend that you check which sort of translation your lawyer or client requires before going ahead with your translation. Sworn and certified translations incur different costs and are more expensive than standard translations, so avoid making costly mistakes and be sure to entrust Active Languages with your legal, sworn or certified translation.
