Can anyone tell me the requirements for official translations of certificates and documents for applications to UK universities (for individual institutions and through UCAS)? I have the DipTransIOL. Do I have to have an official stamp, and if so, where would I obtain it and what should it say? Also, what are the usual rates for this type of translation?

Thank you

No sworn translations, official institution notepaper Jan 24, 2010

Two separate friends are currently in the middle of university applications for their daughters, from Spain.

They have not had to have any sworn translations of documentation, although I know that they have translated references themselves, and then handed them back to the referees so that they could be sent on official notepaper of the instutituion they come from. The official notepaper issue is apparently vital.
