For decades, Canada has had an official system of certification for every translator in the country. This system differs from the American one, which has no official way to certify translators and their work. The Canadian Standard for Translation Services establishes and defines each one of the requirements that affect translation service providers. Canadian translators are only “certified translators” if they meet the provincial laws which include passing proficiency exams and being a member of a local translators association.
At Day Translations we work with excellent certified translators with years of experience, all of whom are legally accepted as certified translators by Canadian law. Our translations include Day Translations’ official stamp so that every one of your translations will be accepted by Canadian organizations all around the country.
Certified translations are mostly needed when dealing with official documents and certain types of institutions and organizations, such as courts of law or any other kinds of regulatory agencies.
The Government of Canada, for example, requires every single document which is written in a foreign language to be translated into either English or French in every application for a work permit.
Another example would be in the case that you wanted to get married in Canada, but you had a divorce somewhere else. In this case, if the divorce certificate is in a different language, the government of Canada requires it to be translated into either French or English before being taken into consideration by the Minister of Government Services.
Another example is in the case of the National Academic Recognition Information Centre (NARIC), which requires certified translations of any document in a language other than English. The institution clarifies it is for the purpose of ensuring that their evaluation of qualifications is correct.
