It’s critical that you choose a proven translation service when your company’s reputation is on the line. A company that has a strict criterion for choosing their translators is of the utmost importance when choosing a professional translation service provider.

The need for certified translation services is expanding quickly due to the increase of globalization experienced by businesses around the world. Many official documents have to be legalized after translation, so they absolutely cannot afford to lose accuracy in the translation process. Some such documents include naturalization and birth documents, marriage certificates, degree certificates, protocols, patents, letters of intent, memoranda and documents that provide legal proofs of any kind.

A certified translation must meet and adhere to a number of requirements. When a certified translator works with a document, it has the potential to become a legal and official document that enjoys all the privileges specified by the government. It must be remembered that a certified translation becomes legally valid when a sworn translator signs and seals the document. A notary public will verify a certified translation if it is to be put to public use.

Requirements vary from country to country with regards to the requirements of certified translations. In the United States, a document that is translated by a member of the ATA (American Translators Association) is considered certified. Although a certified translation is not required in many cases, the benefits of getting a translated document certified are numerous. The most significant of these is the sheer confidence of knowing that your business interests are taken proper care of, in a foreign language and culture without compromising quality in any way.

All major world languages are experiencing an increased demand for governmental as well as commercial needs. Expert translation services have always been important, but in the past few months, this area has been growing – in spite of the global slowdown in business.
