Certified Translations

What is a certified translation?

A certified translation is a translation that is accompanied by a declaration from the translator attesting that, to his or her knowledge, the translation is a true and faithful rendering of the original document.

Certification is normally required for the translation of legal documents such as birth, marriage and death certificates, passports, CRB certificates, etc., for example when applying for passports, bank accounts, driving licences or when getting married in the UK or abroad or divorced, etc.

Allegro is able to provide basic certified translations for a small extra charge. See the prices page.

In certain circumstances, it is necessary for a translation to be sworn or notarised. You are advised to contact the relevant authority, institution or embassy to find out the exact type of certification required.

Allegro can assist with sworn or notarised translations and can advise on the additional costs involved.
