Have you been asked to provide a translation with a certified apostille? Not sure what an apostille is or why it’s needed? In short, an apostille is the legalization of a document for international use. So if you’re thinking about working overseas, moving abroad, or studying in a different country, we can accompany all your translations with the certified apostille requested. As an active member of the world’s first established professional body for translation companies, the Association of Translation Companies (ATC), we have extensive experience in the authentication of documents for international use, for all countries.
Not every country will ask for a certified apostille, as they are only used by the member countries of The Hague convention of 1961. With the purpose of creating an international agreement on simplifying the acceptance of legal documents, the apostille was born. If an apostille from one Hague Convention member country is attached to a person’s birth certificate, marriage certificate, or other legal document, and presented to another member country, then no further certification or legalization is required. To find out which countries are members of the Hague Convention, visit our Certified Apostille Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).
Getting your documents ready for international use, including translation and apostille authentication, can be tedious, time-consuming and expensive. Depending on the purpose of your visit overseas and where you intend to go, the types of documents that require an apostille vary greatly from powers of attorney to birth certificates, adoption papers, marriage certificates, and divorce decrees. We can simplify the process for you by providing not only perfect translation that is a mirror-image of your original, but a stamped, sealed and apostilled document ready for use.
