+ Authentication (legalisation & apostille) for abroad
If you need a marriage certificate issued in Germany abroad, it may sometimes be necessary to have this document "authenticated". An authentication is merely an additional attestation clause confirming the accuracy of the signature. There are two forms of authentication: legalisation and apostille according to the Hague Convention.
The apostille is sufficient for all states that have acceded to the Hague Convention (complete list here. The Hague Convention implemented the exemption of foreign public documents from legalisation on 5 October 1961 (Federal Law Gazette 1965 II, p. 876). Accordingly, an apostille is a form of certification in international document traffic and verifies the authenticity of a document and all its components — including the signature, the capacity of the signatory and the authenticity of the seal and stamp. The apostille is attached to the corresponding document and is mostly required for official certifications.
All other documents are endorsed with the legalisation mark.
+ What do I have to pay attention to when having my marriage certificate translated for abroad?
The certification of our translations is carried out by translators who are sworn in by the courts in Germany and is standardly accepted abroad.
Depending on the destination country, it is sometimes necessary to have the certified translation authenticated. The court where the translator is sworn in is responsible for this. With the authentication, the court issues an internationally valid confirmation that the translator is sworn in Germany and authorised to provide certified translations.
Tip: Check with the local authority, consulate or competent body in the country of destination to find out what requirements apply in your case.
+ Do I need a certification or is a simple specialist translation of my marriage certificate sufficient for abroad?
Since a marriage certificate is an official document, a certified translation is usually also necessary for the document to be accepted by the foreign authority.
Tip: If you have to submit the translation to the consulate, make sure you check whether the translation is to be done explicitly by a translator registered at the consulate. The consulate will be happy to give you information on this.
Do you have questions relating to the ordering/translation process of marriage certificates?
+ What is a certified translation?
A certified translation is the translation of an official document, provided with the translator's attestation clause. Such a translation can only be carried out by court sworn translators. The translator confirms the accuracy of the translation with his/her signature, stamp and attestation clause. The authenticity of the translation is thus guaranteed in a legally binding manner. When you order your translation from lingoking, we guarantee that the translation will be carried out by a court sworn translator.
Additional quality assurance is provided by the 4-eyes principle — as well as our certification according to the European quality standard DIN EN ISO 17100 for translation services. If you need to get it done quickly, we also offer an express service that allows you to meet even the tightest deadlines. Of course, we will treat your documents confidentially!
+ Where can I have my marriage certificate translated and certified?
When choosing a translation agency, you should make sure that the translation office or agency works with professionally trained, court sworn translators. DIN EN certification is also a good starting point for choosing the right translation agency. Transparency with regard to data protection guidelines and pricing also plays an important role.
lingoking has taken up all these points. We will be happy to translate your marriage certificate for you. Of course, only court sworn translators translate for us — around the clock!
+ What does the translation of my marriage certificate cost?
The cost of translating a marriage certificate depends on the source and target language of the document. Widely used languages are usually cheaper than "exotic" languages. The sworn translation of a marriage certificate, e.g. in the language combination English-German, is available from lingoking for as little as 72.90 euros (including certification fee and shipping costs). Of course, we also translate German marriage certificates into other languages such as Japanese, Greek, Turkish or others.
For a small surcharge, you can also order additional certified copies and an additional digital version. You will receive your certified translation not only by post, but also digitally as a scan. In addition, if you need the translation very quickly, our express translation service with express shipping is also available. Brilliant!
