What exactly is a “Certified Translation Service”

for an official document?

Generally speaking, in South Africa, an official document is a statement in writing issued by a government or a recognized authority confirming a person’s status or identity, or certifying a fact. South African Governmental, judicial and academic institutions generally require a certified/sworn translation of any official document issued abroad. Our team of recognized professionals provide certified translation services in the following languages: French, English, Spanish, Portuguese, German and many other language combinations…

Here are just a few of the many official documents that our certified translators can translate for you:

  • Birth certificates
  • Marriage certificates
  • Death records
  • Wills
  • Diplomas
  • School transcripts
  • Driver’s licenses
  • Passports
  • Medical records
  • Court documents (transcripts from hearings, witness/cross-examination testimonies, bargaining transcripts)
  • Arbitration documents
  • Contract (or agreement/settlement)
  • Affidavits
  • Membership agreements
  • Collective agreements
  • Police clearance (or verification certificates/certificate of good conduct)
  • Criminal records (or extracts)
