Certified translations of documents

Certified translations are issued with a clause of a certified translator and are inseparably bound either to the original or a notarized copy of the translated document. These translations are commonly referred to as official translations or certified translations. In any case, these are high-level translations created by expert professionals in their respective fields.

Digital Certified Translation

The digital format of a translation can be leveraged for official communication with various public entities, and it holds the same legal weight as its paper-based counterpart.

In order to maintain the same legal validity as its physical counterpart, a digital translation must be signed using a qualified electronic signature that is accompanied by a mandate certificate. Furthermore, it must include a valid time stamp to ensure the accuracy and validity of the document.

Certified digital translations of documents are available in two officially recognized formats.

  • ASiC container / CAdES

The translated document is available in a secured conversion, and the certified translator combines it with the translation into an Advanced Signature and Encryption (ASiC) container. The container is then bestowed with a mandate seal and a time stamp.

  • PDF / PadES

The translated document is available in a scanned format, and the certified translator binds the scanned document with the translation into a PDF and subsequently affixes a mandate seal, including a time stamp.
