Dear all,

First, apologies if this post is misplaced in the wrong forum.

I need my school certificate translated from English into French, it's required that the translation has to be done by an official translator.

How is a translated document done by an official translator look like? i mean how can the others tell if the document is translated by an official translator or not? e.g. will the official translation have a copy of the translator's certificate attached to prove, etc? Can a freelance translator act as such an official translator?

Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Carol

"official" or "certified" translation Jan 27, 2005

4. I need an "official" or "certified" translation, can ITI help me?

For most purposes, this usually requires either using the services of a sworn translator (this would be a translator sworn before a court in a non-UK jurisdiction), or a Fellow (FITI) or Member (MITI) of ITI who may self-certify the translation. You can also have the translation notarised before a Notary Public or Notary Scrivener (usually listed in Yellow Pages). ITI publishes a set of guidelines and seals for self-certification by its members.

Good researching!

Dear Carol,

That is such a coincidence because i need to have my french school certificates translated into English!
You need to speak to a sworn translator who is specialised in legal translation.
