Legalisation - the legalisation of documents

We will make it a whole lot easier for you

You can come to Urgent Vertalen for a certified translation of documents from a wide range of languages, and a wide range of countries. Including the official seal, signature and declaration of the certified translator. From that moment you have an official, recognised translation. Fully in accordance with Dutch legislation.

Legalising a translation for use abroad

Do you need a certified translation for use outside the Netherlands? Then it will (usually) need to be legalised first. Only then will the documentation be accepted in the destination country. Because this process is not always easy to follow we have created a simple overview which shows you step-by-step how the legalisation process takes place. Click on your destination country in the list of countries below for the required information.

 

Easy legalisation with Urgent Vertalen

Do you want to save precious time? Then opt for Urgent Vertalen’s easy legalisation service. Because we are based a stone’s throw away from the Court in The Hague, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (CDC) and most consulates, we can offer you the convenience of a legalisation service at a very economical price. The advantages to you:

  • Super fast

    Never lose time on posting documents again. Or on collecting documentation. No traffic jams, no hassle with parking. We know The Hague like the back of our hand and we are keen to help you.

  • More certainty

    Thanks to our years of experience with legalising translations we know better than any other when your documentation will be accepted in the destination country. Our documents satisfy all requirements.

  • No extra cost

    No costs of fuel, parking or public transport. Or even double the cost if you have to deliver and collect the document on different days. Save  all this expense with Urgent Vertalen.

  • No time wasted

    Arranging a legalisation will cost you at least half a day. For some countries you can't collect the legalisation until a few days later, which means you would need to come back to The Hague again. We make sure that you can use that time off from work doing something nice instead.
