Our Certified + Notarized Translation Services
Certified translation
Along with the translation, we’ll issue a free signed statement declaring the translation to be an accurate representation of your original document.

Our certified legal translation services are available for marriage, death or birth certificates; adoption agreements; supporting documents for immigration; court transcripts; service agreements; business contracts, etc. Here’s how our certified translation process works.
Notarized translation
We’ll provide your translation and then obtain a notarization signature and official seal from a notary public in the local authorities on your behalf (for additional fee on top of translation cost). Notarization confirms that the translated work is complete and accurate. Notarized translations are often required for official documents for immigration such as passports, ID cards; educational documents such as school transcripts and diplomas, and other papers for legalization purposes both within Vietnam and abroad. Explore how our notarized document translation services can boost your success.

As a professional translation agency, Thao & Co. knows how to navigate this complex process. We’ll first translate the document.

FAQs
What is notarized translation?
Answer:
At its simplest, a notarized translation is performed by a Notary Public as an additional authentication layer to the certified translation. The main purpose of notarized document translation is to legalize translations of official documents within a country.

Furthermore, a translation has to be notarized before submitting it for consular authentication (applied to non-Hague Apostille countries such as Canada, Vietnam, United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, etc.) to be able to use it overseas.

Here’s how notarized translation works.

For some types of official documents, 24 hour delivery option may be available. Please get in touch so we can assess your requirements and provide an accurate estimated delivery time.

What is certified translation?
Answer:
A certified translation is a translation accompanied by a signed certification statement of the translator or the translation agency to verify the translation accurately represents the original, often in the form of a Certificate of Translation Accuracy.

This type of translation is commonly used for personal or business documents such as financial statements, academic degrees, contracts, business licenses, certificates, etc.

Here’s how our certified translation services work.

For some types of documents, 24 hour delivery option may be available. Please get in touch so we can assess your requirements and provide an accurate estimated delivery time.

What is certified contract translation?
Answer:
Certified contract translation is the process of rendering the content of a contract from one language to another. The purpose of certified contract translation is to guarantee the accuracy of the contract in a comprehensive and effective manner. The complete contract translation is accompanied by a Certificate of Translation Accuracy.

Certified contract translation is within the legal translation field. It plays a vital role in promoting global trade, connecting relevant parties, and ensuring understanding and compliance with contract terms.

What are the difficulties in certified translation of legal documents?
Answer:
Unlike some other types of translation, legal document translation faces many challenges. Any mistakes, no matter how small, can cause a lot of legal problems for the parties involved and rarely bring good results. Accurate translation is a must.

Below are the challenges of certified translation of legal documents:

  • Extensive knowledge of legal documents
  • Advanced legal writing skills
  • Subjectivity in legal translation
  • Information privacy
How to get Consular Authentication Services in Vietnam?
Answer:
According to International laws, Consular Authentication is a certification for foreign legal documents to be recognized with full legal effect in a country. If both the issuing country and destination country are members of the Hague Apostille Convention, you can skip the step of acquiring consular authentication.

For example, the United States is party to the the 1961 Hague Convention; therefore, if your documents are issued by the United States government, you can request an apostille and they will be legally valid for use in other countries that are also members of the Hague Convention. There’s no need to get consular authentication. Note that the United States Department of State only issues apostille for federal documents.

Since Vietnam is not a party to this Convention, Consular Authentication is necessary for foreign documents to be used in Vietnam and Vietnamese documents to be used in another country.

Do passports need to be translated and certified?
Answer:
Whether your passport needs to be translated and certified depends on the specific requirements of your host country or the organization processing your application.

In most cases, passports are issued in two languages: English and the language of the issuing country. Therefore, for standard procedures, foreigners do not need to translate and certify their passports.

However, for important procedures, such as when applying for a work permit for foreigners, getting married, or applying for a business license for a branch of a foreign company in non-English speaking countries, it is important that the passport be translated and certified. Thao & Co.’s Certificate of Translation Accuracy is provided free of charge upon request.

Depending on the language pairs, 24 hour delivery may be available. Please get in touch so we can assess your requirements and provide an accurate estimated delivery time.

How to get certified translation services for adoption documents?
Answer:
Adoption is a necessary legal procedure to establish the relationship between the father, mother, and the adopted child.

Consider the following points when selecting a translation agency to translate your adoption documents:

  • Choose a translation agency specializing in translating legal documents
  • Prioritize information privacy
  • Choose a translation company that has notarization and consular legalization services
  • Consider the service quality and project turnaround time
What are the rates for certified translation and notarized translation of documents in 2024?
Answer:
There are currently two main ways to calculate the cost of a translation:

  • Translation rate per page
  • Translation rate per word

However, there are many different factors that affect the cost of certified translation and notarized translation.

When is a notarized translation of marriage certificate needed?
Answer:
Due to the increasing number of transnational couples seeking marriage registration, there has been a high demand for notarized translation services for marriage certificates.

Particularly, this document requires notarized translation in cases of marriages involving foreign elements, as a prerequisite for various procedures such as visa applications, sponsorship, and immigration processes in the country of the spouse.

What are Powers of Attorney?
Answer:
Powers of attorney are a type of legal authorization that allows a designated person to act on your behalf. Such authority may be either broad or limited, and the designated person is called the agent, or the attorney-in-fact. Depending on the authority granted, they can make financial and health care decisions for you. Powers of attorney typically require sworn translation.

What is the rate of certified translation services for academic transcripts?
Answer:
The rate of a certified transcript translation includes the cost for translating and notarizing. Regarding the translation process, the cost will depend on the source language (the original language) and the target language (the language being translated into). On the other hand, the notarization fee is usually affected by the number of pages of the translation and the government agency which supplies the notary seal.

Depending on the language pairs, 24 hour delivery may be available. Please get in touch so we can assess your requirements and provide an accurate estimated delivery time.
