The very best document translations are invisible

We don’t mean literally invisible here but rather that there is no hint your document was originally written in a different language. When you work with us you can be safe in the knowledge all translations of your documents read as if you had penned them from scratch yourself, fluently in any language.

Sometimes you might need a word for word translation, like in the case of legal contracts. Other situations may call for more creative solutions that focus on communicating your message rather than just the individual words, marketing materials are a good example of this. At K International, our skilled linguists deliver a translation that is perfectly suited to your needs, whether that’s a marriage certificate for a local records office or a creative sales pitch to an international corporation.

What is a certified document translation?

Different organisations and governments have different processes when it comes to certified document translations. The UK Government as a whole do not have a specific certification process but instead request only that the translation is completed by a translator/agency registered with specific body’s/associations the certification level someone requires is completely dependent on the person requesting it and as such there is no definite rule to which certification level someone needs but the below list can give a general idea.

An important point to bear in mind is that a certified translation does not replace the original and as such if you are submitting a certified translation a copy of the original should also be supplied.

Certificate of Accuracy

This is a certificate from K International (whom are registered with various industries bodies and associations) stating that the translation we completed is true and accurate to the source files provided. This is suitable for most official UK Government information requests unless specified otherwise.

Legalisation/Apostille

In some cases where a document has been notarised the requestors require additional confirmation that the notary public is registered and genuine, in cases like this an apostille is supplied (a document certifying the translation carried out by the Foreign Commonwealth Office). These are required for official documents destined for use by authorities overseas.

Notarisation

In this case the translator with attend a Notary Public and sign to state that they completed the translation and they are qualified to do so, in cases where a Certificate of Accuracy is not suitable a notarised translation often is.

Sworn translation

A sworn translation is a translation provided by a sworn translator. In order for a translator to be able to complete a sworn translation they must pass certain criteria and be registered with accredited bodies. To be considered a sworn translation, the document will require an affidavit (a declaration signed in front of a legal representative that states the translation is a complete and accurate reflection of the source to the best of the translator’s knowledge).
