What is a certified translation?

In the U.S., a certified translation is one that’s accompanied by a separate signed, notarized Statement of Accuracy. Within the statement, the translator attests to having faithfully and accurately translated the document and lists any appropriate credentials. There is no state or federal certification or licensing for translators in the United States. Though there are some private credentials available to translators in the U.S., these do not carry the same weight as the government certifications or licenses given in other countries.

In other countries where state certification exams exist, translators can pass them to become sworn translators. In these countries, a certified translation is one stamped by that sworn translator’s official seal (similar to that of a notary public). Metropolitan Translations can provide both types of certifications from translators located in the United States and abroad.

When do you need a certified translation?

Certified translations are most often used in any type of “official” capacity. They may be required by high schools, universities, governments, immigration authorities, courts, and any other public bodies when reviewing any documents not in that country’s native language. They may also additionally be required by potential employers. So, if you want to work or study overseas, have to present documents to court, or wish to immigrate to a new country, we can provide you with accurate certified translations.
