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 and select the ""certification"" option, we guarantee that the translation will be done by a translator who has been sworn by a court in Germany.
