Notarial - Translation

TRANSLATION

The very nature of notarial acts and certifications is that they are intended to be used in foreign jurisdictions. It is therefore likely that documents may need to be translated. We can arrange for this to be done on a fast turnaround by our professional translation service providers.

GUIDELINES

Notarial acts are normally drawn up in English.
A notarial act can be prepared in another language if the notary has sufficient knowledge of that language
The notary will usually have to be satisfied as to the meaning of a foreign language document before they can authenticate it.
Notaries usually deal with translations by attesting a professional translator's affidavit. Otherwise, a notary may only certify the accuracy of a third party's translation if he has sufficient knowledge of the language.
