What are Certified Translations?

Certified translations are simply a translation that has been done by a translator with the appropriate certification. A certified translator will stamp the translation with their seal and certificate. In Canada, certification of translators is done at the provincial level, so each province will have its own separate certification body. Click here for more information on locating an appropriate certified translator.

Do I need to have my documents translated?

Document Authentication

Global Affairs Canada requires that any documents that are not in English or French be translated into one of these languages by a certified translator before they are authenticated. This applies to documents that are partially in English or French and partially in another language. Contact us if you have any questions about whether your document needs to be translated before authentication.

Document Legalization

Each embassy and consulate sets its own requirements regarding translation. Some require the translation of any document that is not in their official language, some require the translation of specific types of documents, and some generally don’t require translations. Contact our friendly staff to determine what translation requirements apply to your specific situation.
