We understand that the world of certified translation can be complex, with different countries having different requirements. Luckily, our customer service team can help guide you to ask the authorities the right questions in order to determine the service that best suits your needs. That might mean contacting the passport office to find out what kinds of certified translations are accepted, for example, and whether they require certification from the association of translation companies. Your dedicated Project Manager will be on hand to help with all of your needs.
As standard, although at times small modifications may be required, our certified translations state:
- That the translated text is a ‘true and accurate translation of the original’
- The date of the certified translation
- The full name and contact details of the translation company head office or translator
- They contain our official translation stamp and are printed on letterhead paper
Our certified translation company is fully-accredited and legally recognised in many European and North American countries and accepted by the majority of private and public organizations. Not only that, they are competitively priced and delivered quickly, with the hard copies posted out worldwide at your request.
There may be times where a certified translation isn’t enough, and another type of official translation is required. This may be a sworn translation, notarised translation, legalised translation, a translation signed by a notary public, you may require an apostille etc. Scroll down to find out more about some of the different official translation types.
Official Document Translation Types
Official Translation Services
Certified text translated contains a certification signed by Espresso Translations to confirm that the translated text is a complete and accurate translation of the original. Certified translations are usually sufficient for the translation of texts in most countries.
For notarised translation, the certified translator swears on oath before a notary public that the official document translation has been completed by him/her. The notary public does not confirm the notarised translation quality, only the identity of the certified translator. The notarised translation is then officially certified by the notary public.
Sworn translation is completed by translators who have either a specific qualification or a degree in translating. Sworn translators are accredited by government entities or local courts and the translation is regarded as having formal status by the relevant authorities. It may also require a stamp from a court or public offices.
Documents for use overseas usually need to be legalised or apostilled. Legalisation is done by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. It doesn’t guarantee the translation quality, only that it’s a genuine stamp. It’s only valid in countries signatory to the Hague Convention. Some countries require an apostille before the translation and others after.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do i need official document translation services?
As a translation provider, we firmly believe that certified translated documents are the best way of making sure any documents for official purposes are expertly handled and free from errors, as well as giving them a legal validity that is not always recognised with a standard translation. This is often used in specialist industries such as for a medical translation.
At our translation agency, we pride ourselves on the broad variety of language translations that we offer. We offer this service across a number of different industries, and you can request that we certify any documents translated by our language translation agency.
Our extensive experience in certified translations has shown us that the official nature of the source document or certificate creates an additional need for efficiency and reliability of service.
Alongside being in the capable hands of an expert linguist, you will also be assigned a dedicated Project Manager, who will serve as a friendly and helpful information provider throughout the entire process. They will also help you liaise with government bodies or government agencies on the type of service you require.
Our official translator ensures our customers that the formatting of official documents in local languages remains the same. All documents are sent with a translation certification statement that attests to the accuracy of the translated document, which is often officially required by public entities.
Does your translation company offer certified legal translation services?
Absolutely, yes. 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 translations we offer at competitive prices, no matter what language or timescale you are working to.
Wedding certificate translation and divorce certificate translation, 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 able to assist you with the certification requirements for each country.
The efficiency of our certified translation service is evident from the moment you first get in touch with us via email or by completing the form on our website.

Official sworn translator – certified notarized translation services
Many of our clients are concerned about their status in Europe following the uncertainty surrounding Brexit negotiations between the United Kingdom 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 and Home Office regulations, or simply update changes to their family records.
Our certified translation service complies with government guidelines and can be used for your residence permit or citizenship application unless it is specifically requested that the company be registered with the association of translation companies, which we are currently not.

How do you get a document translated and certified?
Any document can be translated and certified by our expert linguists. A certified translation means that the translator can prove they are fluent and qualified in both the source language and the target language. You should receive a signed formal letter stating this.
How do you know if a translator is certified?
The best way to make sure a translator is certified is to get in touch and check their qualifications. You can often find out this information on a translator’s website, but if that information is not available online, it is always smart to contact the translator or translation service to check. You can often get this information by email or over the phone. It is always worth making sure that a translator is certified in all languages they offer or finding someone who only translates into their native language.
How much does an official translation cost?
It is hard to give a set price for an official or certified translation, as it can vary based on the nature of the document. The average price can be anywhere from $0.14 to $0.18 per word, though it could be more for highly specialized documents, such as legal documents or medical documents. If you need a document translated into multiple languages this will also increase the cost. Here at Espresso Translations, we offer clear per-word pricing on request.
What makes a translation certified?
A certified translation means that the translation is guaranteed to be true and accurate to the original text. These translations must come with a signed legal letter stating that they are certified – meaning that they are accurate, correct, and properly translated by a skilled and fluent translator. This letter can be from the translator or their agency.
