What is a certified translation?
Not all translations are born equal, and the same can be said for certified translations.
Unlike any other form of translation, these are done by the very best translators in an agency. Furthermore, they can be accompanied by a certificate from the agency. This certificate guarantess the accuracy of the translation at hand.
When do I need a certified translation?
Most people do not know when to go with ordinary translation services or a certified translation. If that is your case, here are some hints:
When moving to a country with a different official language to yours, a certified translation will make things much easier. It becomes even more important if you have to apply for residency. In this case, you will probably need to submit your documents in the official language of said country.
In such cases, you want the country’s officials to know that your documents are accurate and genuine. This is particularly important if they are not looking at an original but a translation. After all, your documents hold the key to your processing.
2 College applications
Here, all of your transcripts, admission letters and such other important documents will require translation to the desired country’s official language.
In some instances, though, you get to apply with your documents without translating them. Note that this is only possible when the target schools have stated their tolerance for such, lest your application get discarded for lack of compliance.
3 Business documentation
We have always said it right here at QuickSilver Translate that business translations are very important when you are going international with your business.
By ‘going international,’ that might simply mean that you are dealing with new corporate entities abroad, or looking to expand into an overseas market. No matter which it is, quality translations will do you better than not having one.
For one, that ensures you get to communicate with the local audience in their language, helping to drive your brand appeal and campaigns home. On the other hand, it makes it possible for local members of staff to get on board with company practices via brochures, bye-laws and such other documents which must have been translated.
Furthermore, certified translations become necessary when dealing with other businesses abroad. Examples of such documents are contracts, financial reports and patent filings.
4 Legal translation
Cases in the court of law are as sensitive as can be, and so should legal translations. The smallest detail should not be left out, either in context or in point. That makes it necessary to not only have the top translators in the industry handle such services, but also put their backing to the translation being as accurate to the context of the original document as possible.
