Countries that participate in the Hague Convention use apostilles, which are essentially authentication certifications. These are presented to authenticate legal and official documents and serve as a supplement to notarization. That way, different countries can exchange public documents and understand their content even if they may not share a language. However, if you want to use an apostille in another country that does not share your language, you need to translate it.
When Do You Need Apostille Translation Services?
Anybody can need apostille translation services to and from the English language. Whether you are seeking employment in another country, applying for dual citizenship, or some other reason that requires you to provide certified documents in a foreign country, you will need apostille translation. For example, suppose you want to seek employment in a foreign country. You can get the apostille translated to that country’s language and even use it in other countries that share the same language.
When getting an apostille translation, we advise that you get two translations. One should be of the official apostilled document, while the other should be of the apostille. We provide translation services on a range of documents, including but not limited to birth certificates and diplomas.
Please note that the apostilles are only valid if your home and host countries participate in the Hague Convention. Currently, 115 countries are party to the treaty. That leaves several countries out of it, so you should check this before getting an apostille. Also, note that some states will not require apostille translation if the document has adequate notarization. The states that require apostilles translated to English include:
- North Carolina,
- North Dakota,
- Oklahoma, and
- South Carolina
If you require using the apostilled document in a country that does not participate in the Hague Convention, you must authenticate and legalize it. The same goes for if the document was issued in a non-participating country and will be used in another non-participating country. Either way, you would still need to get the documents translated to match the language in the host country. We can do this too for your official and legal documents, covering different languages.
