What is a notarized translation?

A notarized translation is an official document that is prepared by a professional translator and then certified by a notary. This type of certification confirms the identity of the translator and certifies that the translation is a true and accurate representation of the original document. Notarized translations are often required for official purposes, such as legal documents, deeds, certificates, contracts or other important documents that need to be submitted to authorities, courts or other institutions.

The process of notarization usually involves the following steps:

  1. Translation by a qualified or sworn translator: not every translator is authorized to provide certified translations. In many countries, translators must be specially licensed or sworn.

  2. Verification and certification by a notary: The notary verifies the identity of the translator and certifies their signature on the translation. This certifies that the translation was made by the named person. The notary does not normally check the content of the translation.

  3. Affixing a seal or stamp: The notary affixes a seal or stamp to the document to make the certification official.
