Certified translation is the process of translating a document from one language to another and having it certified as an accurate and true version of the original document. Legal or official documents, like birth certificates, marriage certificates, academic transcripts, and contracts, often need this kind of translation. A certified translation usually has a statement signed by the translator or the translation company that says the translation is correct. It may also have a stamp or seal to show that it is real. For the translation to be valid, it may also need to be notarized or approved by a government agency.
To become a certified translator, you usually have to pass a certification exam or meet specific educational and experience requirements set by a professional association or government agency. For example, in the United States, the American Translators Association has a certification program for translators who meet their requirements and pass a tough exam.
