Where to translate documents?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I used foxtranslate.com but any certified translator will do, or some one that will/can translate it for you and also include a letter stating that it translated accuratly, etc. from the translator.

Lots of people do it on their own.

No, no authentication needed, you just have to attach a letter signed by you that reads like the following: (As given to me in the certifications from the site I used, obviously you won't use the legal mumbo jumbo. Just attest to the veracity of the translation)

We, FoxTranslate Inc., a professional translation company, hereby certify that the above-mentioned document

has been translated by experienced and qualified professional translators and that, in our best judgment, the

translated text truly reflects the content, meaning, and style of the original text and constitutes in every respect

a correct and true translation of the original document.

This is to certify the correctness of the translation only. We do not guarantee that the original is a genuine

document, or that the statements contained in the original document are true. Further, FoxTranslate Inc.

assumes no liability for the way in which the translation is used by the customer or any third party,

including end users of the translation.

A copy of the translation is attached to this certification.

Also, the translated form has to be formatted to look the same as the original doc.

I translated my marriage certificate from spanish to english since I'm fluent in those languages. I used the following language that was given to me on this forum.

The certification format should include the certifier's name, signature, address, and date of certification. A suggested format is:

Certification by Translator

I [typed name], certify that I am fluent (conversant) in the English and ________ languages, and that the above/attached document is an accurate translation of the document attached entitled ______________________________.

Signature_________________________________

Date Typed Name

Address

Good luck!
