Certified Translation Services

What is certified translation?

Certified translation is the translation of documents, certificates, and documentations from one language to another by a certified translation service provider or an entity that has an accreditation from the authorities to which those translated documents are submitted. Certified translations are used by authorities and institutions for official procedures, by submitting them accompanied by the official seal of the translation service provider, with a certification of the accuracy and full conformity of the translation document to the original.


What are the requirements for certified translation?

The requirements for certified translation vary from country to country, as each country has specific conditions for a translation to be certified by its authorities and institutions, to be applicable for use for official procedures. One of the most prominent conditions is that the translator or translation company must provide a statement of responsibility for the accuracy, validity, and conformity of the translated document to the original. Some countries only allow translators designated by the state to provide certified translation services, while other countries allow any qualified translator to provide certified translation services, provided they have the appropriate academic qualifications, which may include membership in a specific translation association or specific academic qualifications.

We provide our valued clients with the original document translation along with another copy, signed and stamped by our office, to ensure that no changes are made to the original document, and to be used as needed.


What is the difference between certified and uncertified translation?

Certified translation is the process of translating documents that are submitted to government or official authorities. On the other hand, uncertified translation is not submitted to government or official authorities and does not require a certification. In addition, certified translations are accompanied by the translation company's logo, date of completion, and the signature of the translator or official stamp of the certified translation office.


What are the types of documents that require certified translation?

Certified translation is required for a wide range of documents, including birth certificates, death certificates, articles of association, specifications, employment contracts, marriage contracts, ID cards, visas, graduation certificates, transcripts, experience certificates, entries, medical reports, balance sheets, travel certificates, declarations, commercial registers, commercial agreements, property deeds, criminal records, and banking statements.


Which authorities require certified translation?

Certified translation is submitted to international official authorities and institutions, such as embassies and consulates, as well as to government bodies, such as courts, universities, and others. Examples of such authorities include the Real Estate Authority, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, embassies and consulates, public universities, and the Supreme Council of Universities, the Commercial Registration Authority, and the European Union.


What are the next steps after receiving a translated document?

Once you have received your translated document, it shall be submitted to the official accrediting entity, such as the Real Estate Authority, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' Notarization Office, the Consulate or Embassy of the country where the document will be used, in case the purpose is to traveling abroad, or to have it notarized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs' Notarization Office before submission to the designated embassy, depending on the requirements and regulations specific to each document or entity involved.
