With us, speed and quality go hand in hand.
Certified translations are performed exclusively by a sworn translator. A sworn translator is a person of public trust and specializes in the translation of foreign language documents and authenticated copies of such documents, and can certify translations and copies made by other people.

To certify translations and copies of letters the certified translator uses a seal containing his/her name, and in the middle an indication of the language to which the translator has the power and position on the list of sworn translators. On all certified documents that are executed by a sworn translator, the item name or number under which the translation or copy shall be recorded in the repertory will be listed, as well as whether it was done with the original, translation or extract.
