Translations required for official purposes – such as birth, death and marriage certificates, legal documents, academic transcripts, etc. require a certified translation for all legal purposes.
Certification serves to identify the translator, his credentials and makes him accountable for his work. Translation certification is an additional document that accompanies the translation and states the following:
that the translation is a ‘true and accurate translation of the original document’
the date of the translation
the full name and contact details of the translator
