A certified translation is completed by a qualified translator who has passed a state examination and been sworn in by a court as a certified translator. It also gets called an “official translation” or a “sworn translation”. The translator follows specific national standards and includes a declaration at the end. They then attach the translation to a copy of your original document and stamp over the top so that the copy of your original document and the certified translation can’t be separated.
Red Tape Translation can organise certified translations for you, from English, Spanish, French, Chinese and Dutch into German and from German, Dutch and French into English. They can be posted to you or you can pick them up in person in Berlin at a mutually convenient time.
