Who are sworn translators?
Certified court interpreters or sworn translators are specialised translators whose expertise is proven after training and court appointment. They are proficient in the languages they work with and familiar with different legal and public administration systems as well as the corresponding terminology.
A sworn translator or certified court interpreter is obligated to translate truly, accurately and conscientiously and to protect the sensitive information made available to them in the documents they are translating or otherwise disclosed.
Certified court interpreters often work closely with attorneys and public notaries and frequently accompany their clients at court hearings, weddings or road traffic regulations tests.
What does a sworn
translation look like?
A sworn translation consists of the translation itself provided with:
- a confirmation of accuracy (by the translator and in the language the document has been translated into);
- prescribed tri-colour thread binding the translation to the original document or its copy; and
- signature and stamp of the certified court interpreter.
The responsibilities of a certified court interpreter are vast because different languages and countries also tend to entail different legal and other systems, so mistranslations can have severe repercussions.
This is why it is very important to choose professional sworn translation services.
