What are Certified Translations?
A certified translation is the translation of documents such as certificates, patent documentation, contracts etc. which are accurately translated and accompanied by a signed statement of truth from an accredited translation agency. Officially translated documents, which are certified are legally recognised and commonly accepted by government and other official bodies in the United Kingdom and abroad.
As every translation project is different and intends to serve a different purpose, it is important to be aware that depending on circumstances, a different type or level of certified translations may be required. Here, at TS24, we not only accurately translate and officially certify your documents, but we also appreciate that time can be an important factor and if required, we can provide this service at very short notice.
Official documentation and material often require an officially recognised stamp, affirming both the competence of the translator and the accuracy of the translation. This is where certified translation becomes relevant. As our translation agency is a registered member of the ATC, we are authorised to provide certified translation services which are legally recognised around the world.
Do I need a certification translation?
There is a number of different reasons why you might need your translation officially certified. Generally speaking, any document that needs to be translated and will be used for legal purposes, such as birth, marriage certificates or documents intended for official use, such as contracts or patents will have to be certified. Our standard certified translation service is fully compliant in the UK and includes a declaration confirming our details as an agency responsible for the translation, the company's accreditation to translate & certify, that it is an accurate and professional translation of the original document and our London translations office's contact details. It is also dated and includes the original signature of our account manager responsible for handling your project.
The time needed to complete the process of translation and certification of your documents depends on a number of factors, such as word count or target language. Nevertheless, in most cases we are able to complete the entire process within just 24 hours. In cases where larger documents are required to be translated, a deadline will be agreed with you before we start the project. Translation Services 24 is an accredited translation company and after the translation is completed, we can therefore provide you with a certificate of authenticity, issued and signed on our letterhead paper, along with a hard copy of the official document and the translation.
