There may be a time when you are asked to produce a notarized translation of a document. Many people confuse this with a certified translation but they are two very different things. You have to check which one is required! Certified translations include a digital certificate of translation attesting to the accuracy of the translation and are usually cheaper as the prices are not regulated by the government while notarized translations need a physical certificate that has the signature, stamp and seal of a notary.
Here are the answers to the most asked questions about notarized translations:
What is a notarized translation?
A notarized translation is when a text or a document is translated and certified by a notary or translated by a professional translator and reviewed and certified by a notary. Every country has different requirements so it is important to check what the regulations are in the country requesting the notarized translation.
What documents usually require a notarized translation?
Marriage certificates, wills, matriculation documents, and birth certificates are some of the most common documents that require a notarized translation. On top of this, you may need notarized translations for certain court documents or submissions.
Who is a notary?
