Get a Certified Translation


To clarify there are three main levels of Certification in the UK.  Most importantly, we offer all of them!

However, each level of certification comes with increased costs and timescales ( usually out of our control and set by 3rd parties ).


This is a Standard level of certification and is sufficient for most cases in the UK.  Importantly the translation is stamped and signed by a recognised professional or agency that confirms the accuracy.  Additionally, this level of Certified Translation is accepted by any UK body or official institute.


One stage above is a Notarized Translation.  In addition, the Translation is then signed in front of a Notary who also signs and seals the document.  This service is sometimes needed for legal trials and if the documents are being presented abroad, for example.  This is sometimes referred to as a Notary translation.

Legalization (Apostille)

Likewise, when a translation is being presented to an overseas body such as a Foreign Embassy, a Legalisation or Apostille is also required.

In short, this is where the FCO validate the Notarized Translation.  Importantly, the FCO Stamp and sign the document and attach an Apostille.  Once complete, this legalised translation can be used in any country signed up to the Hague convention.  In short, Certified legal translation services need an Apostille and Notary stamp.

We translate and certify any document.  Some examples that we translate include; Passports and ID documents, Birth, Marriage & Death Certificates & Medical certificates.

Do you offer Notarisation?

Yes we do! We actually offer 3 levels of official document translation:

1 – Certified Translation – Signed and stamped by our translation agency.  Then fully legal to be used in the UK.

2 – Notarised Translation – Signed and stamped in front of a Notary Public who also seals and signs the document.

3 – Apostille / Legalised Translation – Signed and stamped, sealed by Notary and then sent to the FCO (Foreign Commonwealth Office).  The FCO then verify the translation. Similarly they then sign and stamp the document.  Afterwards, the document is legal to be presented in any country signed up to the Hague convention.


How long does a Translation take and how much does a Certified Translation cost?

This is a tricky one to answer.  For example, timescales can vary on how many documents need translating,  language combination and level of Certification.  However, our Certified Translations start at £30 + vat. In addition can be done within 24 hours if required using our Urgent service.
