Notarized translation

What is meant by a notarized translation, and in what cases you may need it?

Changing the country of residence, work, study, business cooperation with foreign partners and interaction with foreign government agencies — any overcoming of the language barrier in official documents requires the status of a notarized translation for legal use.

How is a notarized translation carried out?

Such translation of documents can be recognized as valid and legally binding only if it is performed by specially trained certified translators registered in the local regional register of translators — simple knowledge of a foreign language is not enough.

Notary offices of the corresponding region of the registration area receive the right to certify the correctness of the translation, sealed with the office’s seal (formally, the notary confirms the correspondence of the translator’s signature to the original).

Minsk Region Translation Agency has the ability to provide notarial services for the certification of translation in accordance with Article 92 of the Law of the Republic of Belarus «On Notaries and Notarial Activities» dated 18.07.2004.

Where a mandatory notarized translation of documents is required?

Necessarily notarial confirmation will be required in migration services, passport offices, registry offices, internal affairs departments, military enlistment offices and traffic police, for nostrification of educational documents and exchange documentation.

In some instances (courts, customs and tax authorities), it is enough to confirm the correct translation of documents with the seal of the bureau. Each time, it all depends on the circumstances and should be clarified in advance with the institution. For employment and commercial transactions, the necessary legal procedures are established by agreement of the parties — as a rule, the seal of the translation agency is enough.
