When is a sworn translation not necessary?

A sworn translation is only necessary if you need the documents for official bodies.

A regular translation is often performed for “personal use” and is often not intended for officialdom. A few examples of things that  we translate daily without certification, and to the full satisfaction of our clients, are: websites, handbooks, books and presentations.

Urgent Vertalen performs a large number of regular translations every day for clients including major international companies, small businesses and individuals.

Always a professional sworn translation

sworn translation by a sworn translator

A sworn translation is often referred to as an official translation. But not all documents need to be the subject of a sworn translation. Every day we perform sworn translations of documents such as: birth certificates, general terms and conditions, diplomas, wills and mortgage deeds. Most of these documents are required for submission to official bodies and therefore require a sworn translation.
A sworn translation bears the stamp, signature and declaration of the sworn translator.

A professional sworn translator

A sworn translation is performed by one of our sworn translators. All our translators are native speakers and possess a bachelor degree or higher. In addition all our sworn translators have taken oath before at least one court in the Netherlands.
Translators deposit their signatures with the court in question, to enable the legalization of signatures on sworn translations. This entitles them to call themselves a sworn translator.

Sworn translation of confidential documents

Upon taking the oath the translator undertakes to act conscientiously and impartially, to conduct him/herself in a manner befitting a professional sworn translator and to observe a duty of confidentiality in respect of all confidential information.
In addition Den Haag's leading translation bureau operates its own privacy policy. If you should require an extra guarantee in addition to our privacy policy we are naturally willing to sign a confidentiality declaration drawn up by you.

We can perform a sworn translation of your document in any language

You can obtain a sworn translation of your document from Den Haag's leading translation bureau into any language you wish. For example we provide sworn translations from English, French and German into Dutch. But also from Dutch into (for example) Chinese, Japanese or Arabic.

Important information about your sworn translation

You would like to obtain a sworn translation of a document, and Dutch is not the source language or the target language of the document? This is no problem at all for The Hague's leading translation agency.

Sworn translators are also available for a number of language combinations with English as either the source language or the target language, for example a sworn translation from English into German. Unfortunately there is not a single translator in the Netherlands who is certified to translate other language combinations, for example from Turkish into Arabic, and it is not possible to obtain a direct sworn translation.

This means that it is always necessary to have a sworn translation into Dutch performed first, and then a sworn translation into the target language. No problem. Naturally you can always expect a clear and attractive price from Urgent Vertalen, in spite of the double translation.

Every day Urgent Vertalen performs a large number of translations for clients including major international companies, small businesses and individuals.

We perform your sworn translation urgently, at no extra cost

In order to obtain a sworn translation of the required document a clearly legible unedited scan or photo of the original document is sufficient for The Hague's leading translation agency. One of our sworn translators will perform the sworn translation into the target language. Naturally the project leader will look into which sworn translator is the best match for the jargon used in your document.

A copy of the original will then be printed out and attached to the translated document. The sworn translator adds his/her signature and stamp and his/her declaration to the document. The sworn translation then has the status of an official document within the Netherlands.

Is your sworn translation intended for use outside the Netherlands?

A sworn translation is performed by one of our sworn translators. If the translation is required for use outside the Netherlands you will need to have the sworn translation legalised.
