We offer professional translation services from English to German or from German to English to businesses, law firms and private clients.
We specialise in the translation of legal and business documents, ranging from contracts and agreements to legal correspondence to general terms and conditions, the certified (or: attested) translation of official documents and website translation.
Certified translation of certificates for official use
Certified translation, or ‚beglaubigte Übersetzung‘, means a recognised translation of official documents. Certified translations are typically required by authorities, universities or schools, courts of law or employers. Documents that may require certified translation include:
- academic transcripts
- birth certificates
- divorce decrees
- ID documents
- marriage certificates
- residence permits
On a certified translation, the translator attests that the target-language text is an accurate and complete translation of the source-language text. Certified translations bear the translator’s signature and official stamp. In Germany, only sworn translators, ‚beeidigte/vereidigte/ermächtigte Übersetzer‘, may produce a certified translation. There is no „notarization“ of translations in Germany.
We prepare certified translations in accordance with the Guideline for Certified Translations issued by the German Federal Association of Interpreters and Translators (Richtlinie des BDÜ für Urkundenübersetzungen). A printout copy of the original document will be attached to the translation.
