Sworn translation of official documents

How can I retain the official status of my translated documents?

A certified translation, also called a sworn translation, is an official translation by an expert sworn translator certified by a Court of Appeal or a ministry. Expert translators add their seal and signature to the document to certify the accuracy of the translation. A certified translation is required for authenticated deeds and administrative documents.
Certified translations (done by sworn translators) are considered valid by the French government and in most foreign countries. The translated document is then considered to have official status. As an illustration, we regularly do the certified translation of articles of association or the certified translation of company registration certificates (K-bis).

Why choose ACSTraduction for your certified translation?

Anke Seyberth, President & CEO of ACSTraduction, is a sworn translator certified by the Court of Appeal of Nîmes since 1999 for certified translations into German, English and French. For other languages, the certified translation is done by our translator partners certified by a Court of Appeal in France or abroad. This wealth of experience has made it possible for us to become experts in the field of official translation. Our knowledge of the procedures of the French administrations and abroad gives us special insight into what is needed for your certified translation to be accepted by the authorities.
