Fast and Reliable Legalisation Service

Certified Notarised Translations

We will arrange for a tailored translation service specific to your precise needs.

A certified translation is required when a legal document such as birth or marriage certificate, company documents, articles of association, certificates of incorporation need to be translated and attested for use with official bodies such as the Court, the Registry Office, Consulate, Passport Office, and other official bodies in the UK or overseas. In this situation it is likely that a professional translation service confirming the translator’s credentials and accuracy of the translation is required.  

We use a translation service accredited by the Association of Translation Companies (ATC) which is expertly qualified and skilled in several languages including: French, Italian, Arabic, Portuguese, Chinese and Russian. The ATC is the professional umbrella organisation whose aim is to promote the highest standards in the translation industry and which membership is composed of translation service providers, which level of competency has been assessed to be the highest levels.    

The links that we have with this translation service enable us to provide certified translations at short notice and as a matter of urgency, sometimes on the same day, depending on the volume of text to be translated. 

Should the certified translation be for use overseas, part of the certified translation process is to get the document legalised at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office prior of it being used abroad, which is offered as part of the certified translation process.

Please check that the destination country where you are presenting your legalised documents is on the list of Member Countries of the Hague Convention. If not, after legalisation you may also need one last step, which is to present the legalised documents to the relevant foreign consulate in England for further legalisation.

We can provide soft translation sent by email or certified translation. We can also have the translation notarised by notary public so that document will be accepted by Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Please provide a scanned copy of document that requires translation by email, confirming the language required, and we will prepare a quote info@llsuk.com.

Please note that the translation service that we use is an external organisation. LLS is not a member of the ATC and we do not employ any qualified translators. Similarly, the notary that we use is not employed by us and we are not regulated as a notarial practice.
