When it comes to translating official documents, it can sometimes be tricky to understand exactly what type of translation you need. With over thirty years of experience with legalised translation services, Atlas Translations is here to deliver fast and accurate legal translation for you.
When might I need legalised translation?
There are many different types of legal translation that you may come across in the UK or abroad. Legalised translation is most often needed when dealing with official documents, and can be used to prove the accuracy or authenticity of the translation itself.
Each country has its own requirements for legalised translation, so it’s always a good idea to check first with the institution you’re dealing with to make sure you understand their specific requirements.
What is apostilled translation?
If you’re moving abroad or are looking to expand your business to foreign markets, you may be required to provide apostilled translation for official documents. An apostille is a government-issued certificate that proves the authenticity of translated documents.
If your documents were originally issued in the UK, you may need an apostille from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO). Translations submitted to the FCO need to be certified by a recognised translation company before the apostille can be granted.
Who’s behind my legalised translation?
Here at Atlas Translations, our highly skilled and qualified translators can provide legal translations of documents that meet the standards required by governmental institutions. Our legalised package, priced at £299 + VAT, is a fantastic way to ensure a quick and accurate apostilled translation.
When a translation request is placed with us, we’ll provide the ideal linguist for the job. Our translators work only in their native languages and have their own areas of specialisation, meaning we’ll find the perfect match for your project.
What steps should I take next?
As the FCO is an essential part of the apostille process, turnaround times can be slightly longer than with other types of translation – certified translation, for example, might take just a day or two, whereas apostilled translations can take several weeks.
