FAQ: Do you have questions about “employment reference letters and their translation”? You can find the most important answers here:

Do you have questions about having employment reference letters translated for Germany?

  • + Do I need a certified translation of my employment reference letter?

    An attestation clause legally assures the accuracy of the translation. So you give a better impression with that. Authorities and offices, but also universities and even some companies, even require a translation with certification.

    Although we also offer a simple translation including quality control or with additional proofreading by a second specialist translator, we recommend booking a certified translation especially for private persons. This adds even more professionalism to your project. Translations without certification are more suitable, for example, for HR departments that have job references of potential candidates translated for internal purposes.

Do you have questions about having employment reference letters translated for abroad?

  • + Do I always need a translated employment reference letter when applying for a job?

    Unlike in Germany, fewer documents are usually required for an application in the Anglo-American world — often only a cover letter or letter of application and curriculum vitae are required. Therefore, in most cases, not all certificates need to be translated.

    Tip: However, keep in mind: Employment reference letters, should they not be mandatory, prove that your information from your curriculum vitae is true and pass on the good impression your previous employers had of you. Translated university certificates can also present you in a good light. Therefore, it is best to clarify which documents are required in a personal telephone call with the possible future employer. Only in this way can you be sure that your documents are complete in the sense of the recipient.

  • + Can I translate my employment reference letter myself?

    There are subtle nuances and differentiations in every language which — even with a very good command of the foreign language — can hardly be adhered to and translated accurately as a layperson. In general, we therefore advise against translating certificates yourself. This weakens your credibility with your future employer and rarely makes a professional impression. You may even falsify your certificate to your disadvantage. With authorities, a (usually inaccurate) translation without certification is not legally valid anyway.

    Even as a native German speaker, one has to admit that the “certificate language” in German is a science in itself. It is therefore better to opt for a professional translator who is guaranteed to translate the content of your certificates with perfect grammar and expression. An additional quality check by a second native specialist translator, a so-called proofreading, offers even more security and is part of the standard procedure of professional translation agencies.

  • + Do I need a certification or is a simple specialist translation of my employment reference letter for abroad sufficient?

    An attestation clause legally assures the accuracy of the translation. So you give a better impression with that. By the way, our translations are certified by translators who are sworn in by the courts in Germany.

Do you have questions about the ordering/translation process for employment reference letters?

  • + How long does it take to translate my employment reference letter?

    We complete our standard translations in a few working days. If you are in a rush, you can of course also use our express service. Then you will receive your translated document within 48 hours.

  • + How long does it take to translate my employment reference letter?

  • + What are the advantages of the lingoking translation service?

    Order your translation online easy and uncomplicated in just a few clicks. A copy of your employment reference letter (e.g. scan) is sufficient for the translation, we do not need the original.

  • + Who translates my employment reference letter? Who has access to the documents?

    Your translation will be carried out exclusively by professional specialist translators. This ensures that your translation is recognized by all government offices and authorities. Only our translators will have access to your personal documents. Discretion and security are very important to us, which is why the encryption and upload in the digital order section also follow the highest security levels.

  • + What is a certified translation?

    A certified translation is a 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 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.

    Additional quality assurance is provided by 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!
