German term or phrase: vereidigen
Der Beteiligte zu 4. spricht englisch. Der Notar zog deshalb Herrn __ wohnhaft in __ als Dolmetscher hinzu, in dessen Person Ausschließungsgründe nicht vorliegen. Herr
__ erklärte, als Dolmetscher nicht allgemein vereidigt zu sein. Alle Beteiligten verzichteten darauf, dass der Notar den Dolmetscher vereidigt.

This is a follow-up to an earlier question... I can't make sense of this text. At the end of this notary record, it's explained that the interpreter translates the record for the English-speaker, and then the record is signed by the interpreter... so he must have been sworn in, right?

sworn in
Explanation:
This usually means "to be sworn in" as an interpreter or translator. If all parties agree that the translator/interpreter need not be sworn in - which would imply that he sworn in for the occasion of this particular court (or be a sworn translator/interpreter to start with) and accept his/her credentials - then it is not necessary. Hope this helps a little.

agree  Richard Benham: Looks as though what is happening here is that although the interpreter is not a "sworn" interpreter, the notary can take an oath from him for this occasion, but the parties waive that requirement to save time.
