Hi, I need to send my University titles to the Swedish Education Authority. The copies of my original documents must be translated from Italian in English and that translation must be a "certified" translation. Question: is a "certified" translation the same as a "legalized" translation, meaning that it has to bear the apostilla and the relative stamps?

In Sweden, foreign official documents, as a diploma, are translated by an authorized translator, legally entitled to certify translations. It is the equivalent of a sworn translator in other countries.
