What exactly is a sworn German translation?

There are a number of important differences between a normal and sworn German translation. Only officially licensed translators may carry out a sworn translation into German. These specialists have been sworn in by a Dutch court specifically for this language. They are not allowed to carry out sworn translations into other languages ​​with this authorization. A sworn German translator is also registered in the register of sworn interpreters and translators (Rbtv). This is part of the Wbtv (Sworn Interpreters and Translators Act). All our German sworn translators therefore have a valid Wbtv number. The translator links this number to a copy or the original, thus making the translation an official, sworn translation. He or she also declares that the translation is complete and correct. This is why a signature and stamp is required to validate the sworn translation. In some cases, a German sworn translation intended for foreign countries must be attached to a certified copy. We do not provide this service. We do, however, attach your translation to a copy of the original uploaded document. In many cases, this method suffices. It is therefore important to check whether this is sufficient in your specific case.

When do you need an Sworn German translation?

For some documents, the translation must be carried out by a sworn German translator. These are primarily documents that have a certain legal validity. Below, you'll find a few examples of documents that often require a sworn translator to be translated.

  • Certificates
  • Evidence in court cases/li>
  • Testimonials
  • Testaments
  • Verdicts
  • Statutes
  • Diplomas
  • Marriage certificates
  • Certificate of conduct (VOG)
  • Contracts
  • Bank guarantees
  • Patents
  • Agreements
  • Summons/subpoenas
  • Marriage certificates
  • Statements of inheritance

The documents mentioned above have a certain legal validity which does not apply when the translation is carried out by a regular translator. Only sworn German translators have the authorization to transfer this validity. However, a sworn translation is not necessary in all cases. Often, a regular translation is sufficient. It is therefore important that you check carefully whether a sworn German translation is required in your specific case. In many cases, a stamp from a certified translation agency such as Fairlingo suffices.


Validate your sworn translations with an apostille

In many cases, sworn German translations must be additionally validated. The regular legalization process is long and complex. That is why more than 90 countries have joined the international apostille treaty. Germany, Austria and Switzerland have also signed this treaty. In this case, the simple method to legalize suffices. An apostille can be requested from every Dutch court and consists of a brief statement from the relevant registrar. On the website of the Dutch national government you can find more information about requesting an apostille.
