What is an official translation?


The expression 'Official Translation' is a catch-all label used by institutions and individuals to describe a translation that has some sort of formal or authoritative recognition.

It is usually intended as a descriptor that excludes documents that are translated by individuals for their own account or who are not professional translators or not affiliated to a recognized translation body.

Official translations may refer to certified and/or notarized translations, though this may oftentimes not be the case. As an example, one university application processing centre defines official translations as those done by one of the following: a consulate or embassy of the country that issued the document or translations verified by consulate or embassy of the country issuing the document; a translation service or agency; an immigrant/refugee association; or the issuing institution.
