What is a certified translation?
Certified translation is often confused with sworn translation, but you should be careful as they are two completely different types of translation. It is a translation issued by a court-appointed translator, accompanied by a declaration on headed paper certifying that the translation is faithful and conforms to the original source text.
Certified translations for the United Kingdom
The United Kingdom does not require only a sworn translation to consider a translation valid for all purposes and with legal value. Some documents (such as degrees and other documents) require certified translation. Certified translation, also known as Statement of Truth and Certificate of Accuracy, is a translation accompanied by a statement on the translator’s letterhead confirming that the document has been translated by a qualified translator.
In the United Kingdom guidelines frequently stipulate that a “certified translation” should be done by a member of a professional body, such as the Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIOL). The recognized professional bodies in the United Kingdom are:
- Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIOL)
- Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI)
Being a court-appointed translator of the Court of Salerno, member (MCIL) and Chartered Linguist (CL) of the Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIOL), I can provide certified translations for the United Kingdom.
