Need a sworn translator?

Looking for a sworn translator? An expert translator who can translate your official document so that it has legal force? You’ve come to just the right place. At YVKVT, we have an extensive network of certified translators who can translate your official documents into any language.

What is a certified translation?

A certified translation is a translation of official documents for governments and legal authorities. This includes:

  • Birth certificates
  • Marriage certificates
  • Testaments
  • Diplomas
  • Legal documents for court cases
  • Court rulings
  • Passports
  • Driving licences
  • Contracts

Are certified translations always done by sworn translators?

Yes, certified translations can only be done by a sworn translator. Sworn translators have taken an oath before the court. They can translate and certify official documents (such as the documents in the above list).

How is a translation certified?

Until recently, the procedure was very slow and laborious. In some cases, the translator even had to go to Brussels to have the document legalised by the government. The sworn translator had to print out, sign and stamp the translation, and certify it.

Nowadays translators can digitally sign the translated document (using their eID) in PDF format. This digital document can be used in Belgium.

Do you need a certified translation for use outside Belgium?

If you need a certified translation for use outside Belgium, this document will still have to be validated by the FPS Foreign Affairs. This can also be done digitally. The certified translator can sign the document at home and upload it to the eLegalization platform of Foreign Affairs. The document is then suited for digital use outside Belgium.
