What is a certified translation?
A certified translation in the US consists of a notarized letter, signed by the translator or translation company and attached to the translation itself. This letter affirms that the translation is a complete and accurate rendering of the original document. This certification does not necessarily prove that the translation is accurate, or that the translator is certified, so it is important to use a reputable company, accredited by the American Translators Association. BridgeLanguages requires that all translators be certified by the ATA, be native speakers of the source language, and have formal education in the target language.
When do I need a certified translation?
Governmental agencies, as well as most legal, financial, regulatory, and academic institutions require certified translations when you are submitting foreign-language documents.
