When Do You Need Certified Language Translation Services?

When submitting documents to a courtroom, regulatory body, or government office in another country, you will need the documents translated into the target language. Many of these organizations require certified translations before being entered into the record. A quick machine translation won’t cut it—you need a real person with skills in both the original and target languages to offer certified translation services.

Legal documents

When it comes to legal translation, you need a professional translator with a legal background. Systems, concepts, and formats vary between one country and another. Specific details matter, especially since formatting and regulations differ between countries.

At LUNA, we provide high quality legal translation services by native speakers. We have a series of processes in place to ensure consistency and accuracy throughout the official documents, ensuring they meet ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 17100:201500 standards.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a certified translation?

Certified translations requires that the translator or translation company sign a statement saying the translation is accurate and is a true representation of the original document. The term “certified” may be confusing, but certified translation services do not need to be done by a certified translator. Essentially, any skilled professional translator can provide certified translation services. The necessary paperwork for that certification statement includes:

  • A statement of the translator’s qualifications
  • Affirmation of quality and accuracy
  • Identification of the translated language
  • The translator’s name, signature, and date [1]

However, translation certification doesn’t necessarily guarantee a quality translation—we do.

Can I certify my own translation?

Yes, however self-certifying can result in your translations being rejected by the end-user. That’s why clients trust LUNA’s certificates of translation as a professional translation company.

What is the difference between notarized translations and certified translations?

A notarized translation is a translation accompanied by a notarized signature verifying the identity of the translator. Since it does not attest to or affirm the quality of the work, it isn’t a measure of quality control. Instead, it’s a way of ensuring all parties involved in the translation followed the appropriate procedures.

A certified translation requires that the translator or translation company sign a statement saying the translation is accurate and provides a true representation of the original document. What differs this from notarized translation services is that the certified translation does not require a signed statement from a notary public.

Both notarized and certified translations don’t require certified translators. At LUNA, we vet our translators so you can feel confident in the accuracy of our certified translation services.

What will you deliver to me?

You’ll receive an electronic copy of your translation documents and the certificate of translation in a digital format that meets your needs. We can also send you a hard copy of your papers when necessary and offer various mailing options to meet your needs.

Can I supply notes, like spelling for names?

Yes, we appreciate your help in ensuring the accuracy of your translation. Our qualified translators always ensure the accuracy of our certified translation services, and notes help make the job easier.
