What is legalization and certification of documents?

It is important to know that not all documents require legalization or certification. The authority or body to which the document should be served usually explains whether a simple translation is suitable. Our office legalizes documents and provides all kinds of certifications; therefore, we can help in every case.

Different documents require different types of certifications, depending on the institution, the purpose for which the documents are submitted and other circumstances.

When the translated text requires official certification, it is important to distinguish between the certification by the translation agency and the certification by a notary. It is useful to discuss each of them.

Not all documents require notarization. For example, if you intend to deliver a translated document to bodies such as the Centre for Registers, the Civil Registry Office, Social Insurance Fund, the courts, it may be sufficient to simply have the less official certification of the translation by the seal of the translation agency. It is not necessary to present the original document to the translation agency for the certification of the translated document – a copy of the document is sufficient. The original or a copy of the document shall be attached to the translation and sealed with the seal of the translation agency. In this way, the translator confirms that the translation was performed correctly and that the translator is acquainted with the translator’s liability for false or known incorrect translation provided for in Article 235 of the Criminal Code of the Republic of Lithuania. The translator who translated the text must also sign at the end of the translated text. This is the translator’s confirmation that the translated information corresponds to the content of the original text. Certification of a translated document by a translation agency is an extra charged service. The cost of validation depends on the volume of the translation.

Translations of certain documents, such as births, marriages, divorce, death certificates, diplomas, study transcripts, incorporation documents, identity documents, must be notarized. Therefore, after translating the relevant document, the translator staples it, signs it, then the translation is sealed by the agency before being submitted to a notary for approval. It is important to know that the notary does not certify that the translation was done correctly. His/her functions are as follows:

  • Verification of the translator’s signature.
  • Approval of a copy of an official document (if required). In this case, the translator certifies that the copy of the original document is genuine.

It is important to present proper documents to the notary, as notaries do not have the right to certify unofficial documents, such as those without stamps, signatures, etc. The original or a copy of the document accompanying the translation of the document must be presented to the notary’s office. However, in order to deliver a copy of a document to a notary, it is important that its compliance with the original is already certified by a notary. It should be noted that translation agencies often cooperate with notary offices, therefore, in most cases the translation agency takes care of the certification of the translation, thus saving the client’s time. Obviously, notarization is an extra charged service. There is usually a charge for verifying the signature of one translator. The cost of verifying a copy of a document depends on the number of pages.
