A certified translation is a careful and true-to-layout translation of the language of your document into the desired target language by a translator sworn in at a (German) court.
This translator confirms the correctness and completeness of the translation in relation to the original document by his/her stamp and attestation clause. A copy of the original document is also usually attached to the certified translation. You will receive the certified translation by mail within the specified delivery time (2-3 business days for short documents). Here you can find an overview of our delivery times.
In particular, authorities require that foreign language certificates and documents be submitted as certified translations. Certified translations are also called official, sworn or notarized translations – however, these designations are partly incorrect (e.g. there is no notary in involved). You can read the detailed requirements for a certified translation on the website of the German Federal Association of Interpreters and Translators.
