If necessary, we can provide sworn translations of your documents

WHAT IS A SWORN TRANSLATION?

A translation that comes with a certificate, a signature and the official stamp of a sworn translator.

 

THE CERTIFICATE

With the certificate, the certified translator indicates that the translated text is an accurate representation of the source text in the target language. A copy of the original source text is attached to the translation and certificate.

 

WHAT IS A SWORN TRANSLATOR?

A sworn translator is certified by a Dutch court of law after passing a skill test for a certain language combination. He or she guarantees the translation by means of a statement with his or her stamp and signature, which are inseparably attached to the original.

 

WHICH DOCUMENTS?

This mainly concerns documents used for official purposes. Examples include documents from public registration archives (Land Registry Office, Mortgage Register), documents of the Registry Office and other official documents, including degrees, auditor statements and legal deeds.

 

INCLUDING THE APOSTILLE

Sometimes certification in itself does not suffice and the authentication of the certified translator's signature must be confirmed by means of an apostille. An apostille is issued by the Clerk of the Court where the translator’s signature is registered.
