Translate official documents for abroad

Official documents are very particular. Thus, in addition to regular entries, they also contain handwritten additions, addresses, abbreviations, marginal notes, stamps, etc. To ensure that you do not encounter any problems when submitting the translation to offices or authorities, you should contact professional translators.

At lingoking, we are happy to assist you with our international network of specialist translators and translate your birth certificate, marriage certificate, death certificate and many other documents into any national language — with certification if required.

FAQ: Our answers to your questions

You still have general questions about translations of official documents?

This depends entirely on the respective official document and the regulations of the respective country. Birth certificates have to be translated and certified for marriage, naturalisation and many other occasions. In Germany, however, foreign birth certificates are generally recognised as long as they have been properly issued.

It is best to ask the relevant authority what requirements you need to meet before booking.

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 addition, documents have some special features that must be taken into account during translation. Thus, when translating a document, abbreviations, handwritten additions, marginal notes, signatures, seals, stamps and watermarks must be taken into account in addition to the general entries.

Since a certified translation of an official document is usually required for its recognition by offices and authorities, we generally advise against translating official documents by yourself.

Therefore, opt for a professional translator who is guaranteed to translate the content of your documents in perfect grammar and expression and certify them officially for you directly.

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 process also follow the highest security levels.

An attestation clause legally assures the accuracy of the translation. Thus, you give a better impression with it. 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 individuals.
