For those occasions when a high quality translation is not enough, and legal validation is required, we at Academia De Español offer our customers a Sworn Translation service from English to Spanish and vice versa.
The difference between our standard and sworn translations is that a sworn translation is:
- Signed and has the official stamp (including the registration number) of the sworn translator.
- The sworn translator is appointed and regulated by a Government Ministry.
- Valid in any legal context, as the translated document is considered a legal document in its own right and is valid as an official translation.
For this purpose, we have on board Mr. Samit Satish Govindani, sworn translator appointed by the Ministry of External Affairs, bearing Registration Number TIJ 9498 since June 2012. Mr. Samit specializes in sworn translation of diverse legal documents from English to Spanish and vice versa.
The validity of an official translation has no expiry. It cannot substitute the original document but certifies its content, therefore, if the content of the original document expires, the translation has no effect by itself.
Although the original documents can be sent by any means (fax, e-mail, etc.), the sworn translation can only be supplied on paper as it has to include the signature and seal of a sworn translator who is recognized by the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Numerous official bodies in Spain and abroad require this type of translation (ministries, courts, academic institutions, etc.). However, with his or her signature and seal the sworn translator attests to the accuracy of the translation, making sworn translations also essential when the precise content of the original text needs to be known for other purposes.
Typical cases where sworn translations are required include:
- Legal Documents such as PCCs, Birth Certificates, Marriage Certificates
- Official Recognition of Academic Certificates
- Naturalization Proceedings
- Residents’ Permits
- Powers of Attorney
- Minutes of Meetings
- Letters of Intent and Memoranda
- Financial Information
