Questions

How long does it take to have a translation completed?

The duration of completing a translation project depends on the volume and complexity of the project, but also on the degree of emergency that the client provides. For visibility on the deadline of your translation, the Project Manager will always offer you all the necessary information in this regard, before project confirmation.

How can I have a translation notarized?

Notarization is a service that we facilitate for authorized translations made by our translators, who are authorized by the Ministry of Justice. This process involves preparing the translated documents, drafting a specific closing thereof which has to be approved by the notary public with which we collaborate, and travelling to the notary public office for the translator’s signature to be certified. As we have strong relations with notary public offices, and extensive experience in applying the procedure, we can facilitate this service, so that your translations be notarized before delivery.

What is the Hague Apostille?

The relevant authorities of a State which signed the Hague Convention apply a stamp (Apostille) on official documents issued in such country which are to be presented in another signatory State, as a certification of the signature and stamp of the issuing institution.

At the PREFECTURE, the Apostille is applied on administrative official documents. In COURT, the Apostille is only applied on documents issued by institutions within the Ministry of Justice. At the CHAMBER OF NOTARIES PUBLIC, the Apostille is applied on original notarial documents or on notarized copies and translations.

What is Legalization?

Documents (originals and translations) need to be legalized when they have to be used in countries that are not signatories to the Hague Convention. Certain countries may require legalization of both the original document and the translation, in which case the original should be legalized before the translation is made. The originals of education-related documents may be legalized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs only after being endorsed by the Ministry of Education (by school inspectorates or CNRED).
