Only a qualified translator or a translation agency is in a position to prepare a certified translation that would be accepted by public and private institutions and authorities in the U.S and abroad. It is essential and vital that the translation be accurate: certification essentially guarantees that it is.
A certified translation document bears the stamp of an official and a qualified translator or translation agency and is accompanied by an affidavit certifying that the translated text is a true and accurate representation of the original. It ensures that the contents of both the original and the translated document are identical and that the document can thus be used for all legal purposes in its translated version. Such an affidavit also contains personal details of the translator or translation agency, which can be used for cross-reference purposes.
