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. Such documents are 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.
Paperwork for use overseas usually needs 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?
With our years of experience in linguistics, we know how important certified translated documents are for official purposes. These files have to be expertly handled and free from errors, and they also need legal validity that is not always recognised with a standard translation. This is often used in specialist industries such as for medical reports, academic certificates, and files for legal matters.
At Espresso Translations, we pride ourselves on the broad range of different language translations that we offer. We specialist services for every industry, and you can request that we certify any files that we translate.

Our experts make sure that the formatting of official documents remains the same. All documents are sent with a translation certification statement that proves the accuracy of the final document, which is often officially required by public entities.

How do you get a document certified as a ‘true and accurate translation’?
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. We ensure that we can offer this service by only using native speakers to translate files.
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 online, but if that information is not available, you should contact the translator or translation service to check. 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, as native tongue translators will have better fluency.
How much does a sworn document translation cost?
It is hard to give a set price for an official or certified translation as there can be differences depending on the type of document or the language pair in question. The average price can be anywhere from £0.12 to £0.18 per word, though it could be more for highly specialised documents where further experience is needed, such as legal documents or medical documents. If you need a translated document in multiple languages this will also increase the cost. Here at Espresso Translations, we offer clear per-word price quotes on request.
What makes a translation certified?
A certified translation is where the finished translation is guaranteed to be true and accurate to the original text. These translations must come with a signed legal letter proving their certification – meaning that they are accurate, correct, and are checked by a skilled and fluent translator. This letter can be from the translator or their agency.
