Professional English / German Translation Services
Legal translation, certified translation of certificates, translation of business documents and website translation
I offer professional translation services from English to German or from German to English to businesses, law firms and private clients.
I 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. It bears the translator’s signature and official seal. Certified translations are typically required by authorities, universities or schools, or courts of law.
I am a publicly appointed and sworn translator and therefore my translations are accepted by authorities across Germany.
Documents that may require certified translation include:
- academic transcripts
- birth certificates
- divorce orders
- 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.
I prepare certified translations in accordance with all applicable rules and guidelines. These include the Bavarian Interpreters Act (Bayerisches Dolmetschergesetz) and the Guideline for Certified Translations issued by the German Federal Association of Interpreters and Translators (Richtlinie des BDÜ für Urkundenübersetzungen).
