Espresso Translations is an industry-leading translation services provider offering certified translation services for official purposes in over 150 languages. Whether you need a notarised, sworn or certified translation, we have expert official translators on hand ready to translate your documents quickly and accurately.

Whether you’re a student heading out on an Erasmus year abroad needing a degree certificate from your home university in another language, or the spouse of an overseas secondee requiring a marriage certificate translation to secure a visa, getting all of your paperwork in order in a language that isn’t your first can be a daunting project. 

We know that living or working abroad can produce a lot of bureaucratic headaches and our services are designed to help minimise the hassle. Alongside being in the capable hands of an expert certified linguist, you will also be assigned a dedicated Project Manager, who will serve as a friendly and helpful information provider throughout the entire process.

Types of Official Translation

Certified Translations

Certified translations contain an attestation signed by either the translator or the translation agency to confirm that the translated text is a complete and accurate translation of the original.

Notarised Translations

For notarised documents, the translator swears on oath before a public notary that the translation has been completed by him/her. The notary does not confirm the quality of the translation, only the identity of the translator. It is then signed by the legal notary.

Sworn Translations

Sworn documents are completed by translators who have either a specific qualification or a degree in translating. Sworn translators are accredited by government entities or local courts.

Legalised Translations

Documents for use overseas need to be either legalised or apostilled. In the UK this is done by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). It does not guarantee the quality of the translation, only that it is a genuine stamp. It is only valid in countries signatory to the Hague Convention.

Why Choose Espresso?

As we hand-select each qualified linguist who carries out our language services, you can rest assured that their work is of the highest possible quality. Certified texts are the best way of making sure any papers for official purposes are expertly handled and free from errors, as well as giving them a legal validity that is not always recognised with standard translations. 

Our extensive experience in certified translations has shown us that the official nature of the source documents creates an additional need for efficiency and reliability of service. Fortunately, providing a quick turnaround is fundamental to our agency as a whole. You can rest assured that when you select us for your translated document certification services, your project will be delivered on time.

Certified Translators

You can be sure that our translation certification services will not only be carried out with a high level of linguistic accuracy but will be presented in a clear, comprehensible way that perfectly matches the requirements of your documents – whether this means sticking to the original format of your certificates or adapting to the model used by the county in question.

Many of our clients are also concerned about their status in Europe following the uncertainty surrounding Brexit negotiations between the UK and the European Union. Some who had their immigration documentation translated years ago may want to be reassured that their paperwork still matches up to EU regulations, or simply update changes to their family records. 

As we understand just how stressful these adjustments can be, we always make sure our industry-leading services are perfectly reliable, with your expert translator always checking over what they translate before they submit. All translations are then proofread a second time by another linguist which is particularly important for documents where you want that extra level of certainty, such as law documents to be used in court.

Translate Certificates

Helping individuals and families bridge linguistic and cultural gaps is a central premise of our language agency, and this is clear in the wealth of certified translation services we offer at competitive prices, no matter what language or timescale you are working towards. 

We know that emigrating to another country can often bring with it a great deal of red tape, even if you speak the language fluently. Wedding certificate translations and divorce certificate translations, for example, must be carried out by a certified translator, and for many countries there is a specific format that these must adhere to in order to ensure that they are considered legitimate, but our experienced and reliable team is always up to date with the requirements for each country.

The efficiency of our service is evident from the moment you first get in touch with us. Within an hour of receiving an outline of what you require us to certify, we will reply with a personalised quote for our services that reflects our emphasis on providing consistently good value for all of our customers.
