    Our certified bank statement translation services

    Espresso Translations offers bank statement translation as part of its broad range of document translation services. You may need to provide an official translation of your bank statement if you are applying for a visa to visit the UK, studying abroad or setting up a business in another country.  

    Your bank documents must be translated accurately in order to be considered valid, so it is vital that you choose a professional translation service that can provide you with a translation certification that attests to the translation’s reliability.

    With our certified translation service, we ensure high-quality and accurate translations of official documents in another language, such as financial statements and other banking documents. We guarantee that your documents will meet the translation requirements of the requesting government body, academic institution or foreign public entity.  

    Bank document translation requires a high level of attention to detail as mistakes can be costly and may cause delays to visa applications or business transactions. Availing of a translator with vast experience translating bank statements and other financial documents gives you the confidence that you will receive a reliable and accurate translation. 

    We have a team of over 2000 professional translators covering more than 150 major languages, meaning no matter the language combination, we can help. Our translators only ever translate into their native language, resulting in a fluent and natural-sounding text. All of our expert translators have more than five years of experience in financial translations or hold a translation qualification. Each finished translation is checked by a second translator to ensure complete accuracy, in line with ISO 17100 standards, a recognised world standard for quality translation services.

    Your translated bank statements and financial documents will be sent to you in a digital format via our free online delivery service. If you need a hard copy, this can be sent to you by post for a small fee. 

    Our certified translations of bank statements for use in the UK are accepted by the Home Office, the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO), universities, courts, and other official UK authorities. Our team of certified translation experts will ensure that your translated documents are suitable for submission to government bodies, immigration offices or banks. 

    The time required to translate a bank statement will depend on the language pair, the length of the file, the complexity of the terminology, as well as the formatting required. In most cases, your translation can be done in 48 hours. However, if you need your bank statement translated in a hurry, we offer a fast 24-hour turnaround service for an additional fee.

    Do I need to translate my bank statement for official purposes?

    You will need to translate your bank statement for official purposes if the company or entity you are submitting your documents to has asked you to provide certified translations. These translations are usually requested for procedures such as applying for a visa or citizenship in order to provide your income and ability to support yourself financially in the country you wish to visit.

    There are many other official uses for a professional certified translation of your bank statement such as when applying for a home mortgage in another country. Students attending foreign universities may also need to have their bank statements translated in order to apply for scholarships or bursaries.

    Do I need to translate a bank statement into English?

    An English translation of your bank statement will be necessary when you are submitting documents to UK authorities such as UK Visas and Immigration, UK universities or when starting a new business in the country.

    In these instances, you will need to contact a certified translation company that can provide you with a certified bank statement translation service.

    How do I get an official certified bank statement translation in the UK?

    To get an official certified bank statement translation in the UK, you will need to contact a translation provider that offers translation services for official use. You must ensure that the agency offers certified translations in line with .gov guidelines.

    This involves providing a translation certification or statement of truth from the translator or translation agency that states that it is a “true and accurate translation of the original bank document” and contains the translator’s contact details, signature and stamp. This serves to attest that the translated document accurately and truthfully reflects the original. 

    Sometimes, you may also be asked to provide a notarized translation. This is usually for UK private entities and not public institutions whereby certified translation is sufficient. A notarized bank statement is signed and sealed by a notary public to verify the identity and signature of the translator.

    Can bank statements be translated for official or legal purposes?

    Bank statements will need to be translated and certified for official or legal purposes. In addition to certificate translation and notarized translation, we can also apostille translations as may be required by some foreign government bodies or courts. Additionally, we offer embassy-approved translation services. 

    Espresso Translations provides a broad range of language translation services that are accepted by UK authorities and foreign public entities.

    How to translate a bank statement online?

    There are two ways to translate a bank statement online. First, you can use an online translation provider such as Google Translate. This is sufficient if the translations are for personal use only, but if you require legal translations, these will need to be done by a certified translator.

    Second, you can find an online certified translation agency. This is the option you will need to go for if you need to use your documents for official purposes. The whole process can be done digitally, without the need to post hard copies of your original statements. You will receive your documents back via e-mail unless you request hard copies, in which case they will be posted to your address.

    How to translate a bank statement? What’s the typical procedure?

    First and foremost, the procedure for translating a bank statement involves choosing a certified translation provider. To ensure you select the most suitable provider, ensure they have a translation industry certification, such as ISO 17100. Also, check their online reviews to see what previous clients say about them.

    At Espresso Translations, we ask that you send us clear, legible scans of your bank statements; there is no need to send physical copies. Use secure transfer methods such as encrypted email or a trusted file-sharing platform to send us your financial documents.  As a trusted provider of document translation services, we adhere to a strict privacy policy, therefore you can rest assured that our team will treat your bank statements with confidentiality and discretion. 

    You will need to provide information on the type of translation you require (for example a certified, notarized or apostille translation) and in which country you will be submitting the documents. You should also specify the language combination and your ideal deadline. 

    A certified translation will be accompanied by an affidavit which is a sworn statement attesting that the translated document is true and accurate. This statement of truth is printed on official letterhead and includes the name, contact details, signature and stamp of the translator. It will also feature the date of the translation as some foreign public entities require translations that are less than six months old.  

    Our translators will maintain the original formatting of the document such as PDF, JPG, PNG, Word or other formats. We will send you the entire document in a digital format as part of our service to make the process more streamlined. We understand that sometimes you may need a physical copy, so we can send it by post for a small fee.

Prices for notarized translations start from £90 (+ VAT). Legalised translations also known as apostilled translations cost from £90 (+ VAT).

    The cost of translating financial documents including bank statements will depend on a number of factors. One of the biggest factors affecting the cost of translating a bank statement is the language pair, meaning the source language and the target language.

Other considerations include how complex the terminology is, the formatting and your required deadline. Translating bank documents also requires a certain expertise and knowledge of financial terminology which has an impact on the cost. 

    Certified translation costs are typically based on a price per word. However, some uneditable documents may be priced per page instead.  A page is normally considered to be around 250 words.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What is a bank statement?

    A bank statement is an official document produced by your bank. It includes all your financial transactions that happened on that bank account during a set period of time, usually a month. If you have more than one bank account, each will have its own monthly statement.

    What is the difference between a bank statement and a certified bank letter?

    There is a difference between a bank statement and a certified bank letter. A statement is a list of all your activities related to that account while a certified bank letter is issued by your bank that proves your ownership of the account in question.

    What is a certified bank statement?

    A certified bank statement is usually requested to prevent fraud or money laundering. It must also meet certain criteria. This includes being dated within the previous 90 days, being signed or stamped by the bank, showing the bank’s name and logo as well as your name, address and account number.

    Is a bank statement the same as a credit card statement?

    A bank statement differs from a credit card statement. While both are monthly summaries of the activity on the respective accounts, a bank statement will show all money coming in and out, interest earned if applicable and any fees applied to the account.

    A credit card statement shows all your purchases using the credit card, and how much you owe the credit card company including the interest rate.  It will also indicate the minimum payment due for that particular month and the previous payments you have made. 

    Which bank statement is acceptable for UK Visa?

    If you are applying for a UK Visit Visa, you will need to provide a bank statement that shows the account with your monthly salary payments and your financial commitments. For bank documents not issued in English, these will need to be translated into English or Welsh and certified to be acceptable as part of a visa application.
