How is a Certified Translation from English to German Created?

A certified translation is a proof of qualified service.

Getting a certified translation from English to German is not quite as straightforward as you might imagine. There is actually far more to it than simply having it translated by somebody who can speak both languages before it being sent back to you.

How is a Certified Translation from English to German Created?

A certified translation is required when organizations, authorities or governments want to make sure that the documents have been translated accurately and are therefore legal in the new language that they have been presented.

What are the Steps Involved When a Certified Translation is Performed?

#1. First of all, you have to clarify with the respective organization, authority or government which type of certification your documents will need. If you’re not sure, your chosen language service provider may assist you on this purpose.

#2. Choose a suitable language service provider. Only a certified translation provider may perform a certified translation completing the translation from English to German to extremely high levels of accuracy.

#3. Hand out your original document(s) to the chosen language service provider to receive a quote. The amount quoted will obviously differ depending on the length, type and purpose of the document as well as the turnaround time and the type of certification required.

#4. All documents are certified after being translated. The required certifications are carried out by the language service provider. The type of certification will depend heavily on the purpose of the document and the organization, authority or government that requires it to be legally certified.

There are two types of certifications: notarized translations and translations authenticated with an apostille. Here you can learn more about the different types of certified translations.

#5. The documents are sent back to you.
