Who needs a certified translation?

If you ever move to/spend a bit of time in another country, you will at some point need a certified translation of an official document.

The most common types of certified translations are required for:

  • birth/marriage/divorce certificates
  • degrees and transcripts
  • academic references - and other documents to support a university application
  • legal documents - e.g. insurance letters, wills
In some cases, an existing certified translation may no longer be valid and a new certified translation may be required.
If you're unsure about the type of translation you need, read my article on certified translation or drop me a line.
