Dear All
Can anybody tell how I can get my translations notary certified in the United Kingdom. I have clients calling me and asking for notary-certified translations of diploma, birth or marriage certificate, etc.
Is it just going to the local notary office and to register with them as a translator? Will they easily register me? Or I have to obtain any other additional qualification here in the UK, so to be British accredited apart from my current Diploma in Linguistics issued in my own country.

Can anybody help with the advice, please!

Many thanks

Natalya

The clients are in the UK too. They need to have different documents translated from their mother tongue into English and have them notary-certified.

As far as I know... May 29, 2008

you just do this on a per-document basis in the UK (no particular qualification necessary). Call a local notary out of the Yellow Pages and make an appointment to notarise a translation. Then you simply take your passport along as proof of your native language and identity, they will get you to swear that the documents are a true translation (or similar) and the notary will then handle the rest for a moderate fee. Worth checking the fee when you ring up.

Note: I have not been through this process myself but know others who have.

Hope that helps!

No problem :) May 29, 2008

It goes without saying that you have to take the original text AND your translation along with you so the notary can see them (and so they can be stamped I guess).

Thanks again May 29, 2008

I see now. I am actually familiar with the procedure as I did this in Russia, but I though it would be so different in the UK. It looks like it's all the same, which makes life much easiericon_smile.gif.

Have a nice day, Sarah! I do appreciate all your help in this matter.

Thanks a lot
Natalya
