Notarized and Certified Translation Services

What is a certified translation?

In the United States, a certified translation is a document that has been translated by a professional translator and is supplemented by a signed statement (in some cases this might be called a Certificate of Accuracy of Translation, or something similar) declaring that the translator is fluent in both languages and that the translation is true, accurate and complete to the best of the translator's knowledge, ability, and belief.

In fact, any translator or representative of a translation company can certify a translation by signing a similar document which states that they had the translation carried out by a qualified translator and believe that the translation is an accurate copy in the second language.

Difference Between Certified and Notarized Translations

Many people who are not familiar with the jargon used by the courts or translation companies are sometimes confused about the differences between certified translations and notarized translations. Even though both types of translations are carried out in the same manner, and are essentially the same, there is a difference between the two and depending on your particular need, you will either require one or the other. In most cases, you will want a notarized translation since most government agencies, courts, and educational institutions require that all translations come accompanied with a notarized statement. 

With notarized translations, the translator, or an authorized representative of the translation agency, will go before a notary public and present the translation along with the original documents and sign a statement or certificate of accuracy of translation (provided by the translation company) which will then be signed and stamped with the official seal and signature by the notary public.
