Types of Official Translation

Certified Translations

Certified translations contain a certification signed by Espresso Translations to confirm that the translated text is a complete and accurate translation of the original. In the UK, certified translation services UK are sufficient for the translation of documents.

Notarized Translation Services

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

Sworn Translations

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 translations are regarded as having formal status by the relevant authorities.

Legalised Translations

Documents for use overseas need to be legalised or apostilled. In the UK, 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.
