Translators & Interpreters

Why do I need a certified translation and what type of certification do I need?

Affidavit (Sworn Translation)

An Affidavit may be required by the courts, for legal proceedings such as divorces etc. This is a declaration in writing made upon oath by the translator before a person authorised to administer oaths i.e. a solicitor, Notary Public or Commissioner for Oaths.

The price for this can vary, depending on the charges made by the Notary Public or Commissioner for Oaths used.

If the Affidavit is required abroad, then it must be sworn in front of a Notary Public and not a solicitor or Commissioner for Oaths, as otherwise it will not be acceptable.

The affidavit can also be known as a solemn declaration as it begins with the words ‘I do solemnly declare…’
