English term or phrase: scrivener notaries
Scrivener notaries, who get their name from the Scriveners' Company, are the only notaries permitted to practise in the City of London. Due to their geographical proximity to many civil law countries, scrivener notaries are only appointed after five years' articles to a practising notary. Scrivener notaries must be fluent in one or two foreign languages and be familiar with the principles and practice of foreign law.

Notarios "Scriveners"


Explanation:
Existe en Londres una rama del notariado que se denomina «scriveners» y que son notarios públicos que deben especializarse en un idioma extranjero. De hecho hacen las veces en el Reino Unido de los traductores jurados. El argumento en contra de estos «scriveners», que tienen muchos traductores jurados españoles, es que muchos de ellos son nativos ingleses y no son ellos mismos capaces de traducir al español; lo que hacen es contratar a buenos traductores españoles. Las traducciones se cotejan, pero es el notario el que certifica la traducción como si él mismo la hubiese realizado y así el documento es válido ante las autoridades hispanas. En el caso de países sudamericanos, se aplica el mismo procedimiento, pero la firma y sello notarial en algunos países debe de legalizarse por el consulado pertinente.
