Certified Translation Frequently Asked Questions:
See also: Certified Translation Glossary.

  In Canada, translated documents, particularly in circumstances where they are being submitted to public officials for the establishment or settlement of official or legal matters, often require that they be certified by a translator who is duly recognized by a translation licensing body and officially approved for the purpose. In some circumstances, the documentation being certified must bear the official seal of a duly accredited translator. In other instances, documents must be notarized or accompanied by a sworn statement.

  In the United States, the requirements are different – at least insofar as any documentation required by US Immigration is concerned. The US Citizenship and Immigration website states that:
"Any foreign language document offered by a party in a proceeding shall be accompanied by an English language translation and a certification signed by the translator that must be printed legibly or typed. Such certification must include a statement that the translator is competent to translate the document, and that the translation is true and accurate to the best of the translator's abilities."

There is no mention of the words "certified translator" "notarization" or "notarized translation" in the US Citizenship and Immigration information. They require a "certification signed by the translator" as opposed to a translation rendered by a certified translator. We can provide you with the requisite certification.


Certified translation requirements vary depending on jurisdiction, official requirement(s) and end-use. Generally, a certified translation consists of a certification stamp (seal) along with a statement signed by the translator, attesting that the translator believes the target-language text to be an accurate and complete translation of the original-language text (aka source-text). Generally, the translator affixes his/her stamp on the hard copy (paper copy) of the translation.

Our translation agency's certified translations are performed by translators whose qualifications are certified by a certificate issued by a national organization (such as the American Translators' Association (ATA) in the United States) or a provincial association such as the Association of Translators and Interpreters of Ontario (ATIO) in Canada. The organization requesting the certified translation from our client can contact the association to verify a given translatorís credentials.

A statutory declaration may be required if the organization our client is dealing with requires the translatorís declaration or statement to be witnessed and sealed by an official such as a Notary Public or Commissioner of oaths.

The Notary or Commissioner verifies the identity of the translator, satisfy herself / himself of the genuineness of the signature, and/or administers an oath or solemn affirmation. (Note: The Notary Public or Commissioner of oaths is not attesting to the accuracy of the translation itself.)

The organization to whom our client is submitting the certified translation will acknowledge whether or not it specifically requires a statutory declaration in addition to the certified translation.

The fees we quote on certified translation assignments vary according to the number and extent of services required as well as the final (delivery) destination of the certified documents. (ALL finalized certified translations we handle are delivered in hard copy format.)

For the definition of all of the terms used here, please refer to our Certified Translation Glossary.

In particular, the requirements related to certified translations vary from one jurisdiction to another as well as the interpretation as to what constitutes a certified translation (read more...).

  To secure a CERTIFIED TRANSLATION follow these steps:

Step 1: Send your documents and information
In order to provide you with a document translation quote we must be provided with an electronic copy (scanned version — ideally in colour) of the document(s) requiring translation to properly assess the scope of work involved (language pair, type of document, word count, file format, technical difficulty, language resource availability, etc.).

Go to our Request a Quote page and attach the document(s) in one of the following file formats: MSWord (*.doc or *.docx); Adobe Acrobat (*.pdf); PowerPoint (*.ppt or *.pptx); MSExcel (*.xls or *.xlsx) formats. OR, e-mail us a file (scan) of the document(s): service[at-sign] Be sure to include your full contact information (name, phone number, mailing address with zip code or postal code, e-mail address) and identify the language pair (e.g., Arabic to English). We normally respond by e-mail within 24 hours of receiving a request.

Step 2: Payment
We will send you a firm quote along with a payment request via e-mail before we begin the translation. Please note that full payment is required in advance before we can proceed with a certified translation project. We will e-mail you an invoice once we are in receipt of an e-mail confirmation from you to proceed with the translation project. At that time we would require that you call us with your payment information: Our methods of payment are VISA, MC or e-mail money transfers through RBC, TD, Scotia bank, CIBC or BMO. Toll Free: 1-888-722-3515

Step 3: Translation and Delivery
The average turnaround time for certified translations is 3 to 4 business days plus courier delivery time (usually one business day (24 hours)).

Our process for certified translations is to provide you with a draft of the translated document(s) via e-mail for your review and approval. Once you have approved the translation and we have received your confirmation via e-mail that we can print and certify the documents, the translator would then affix his/her certification seal/stamp to the translated document(s) and provide a certification statement; following which, we would have the certified translation sent to you via courier. Courier delivery is usually made within 24 hours of shipping — a courier service tracking number would be provided to you.
