I have recently been awarded sworn translator status (traductrice assermentee) from French to English in France. The court itself did not give guidelines on what a traduction assermentee should look like, can anyone point me towards some information? Is it up to the individual to supply themselves with a stamp? If so, does it need to say something specific (such as which court granted the status)? Are prices for traductions assermentees regulated at all or is it up to the individual to set their own rates?
Thank you for all your help and advice with this.

Do not know much about France but Mar 16, 2016

I would contact association(s) for professional (or sworn) tanslators in France for some guidelines or trainings on operating as sworn translator.

I'd ask them Mar 17, 2016

Surely the ones who gave the right are the ones to advise about a stamp? I seem to remember getting varying prices when I was preparing to live there and needing this service.
