If you need some help deciding which level of translation you require, please try completing the following questions:
A Certified Translation is where a qualified certified registered translator translates a document and then signs a declaration to state that the translation is a true, complete and accurate version of the original document.
The original document is not usually required because it is the translation that is being certified, not the original document. In most cases an electronic copy of the original is sufficient for the purposes of obtaining a certified translation.
A Certified Translation is usually required where documents will be submitted to official UK organisations.
