German to English - Official Certified Divorce Certificate Translation
Official Certified Divorce Certificate Translation
My certified official translations of divorce certificates are accepted by the UK Home Office, all UK Government Departments, UK NARIC, HM Passport Office, Embassies, British insurance companies and banks, as well as schools, universities and employers.
If you require a certified translation of a divorce certificate from German into English, you have to be certain that the translator you use is fully qualified.
There are no German certified translators or German sworn translators in the UK. Instead, translators who are qualified and members of a professional institute like the Chartered Institute of Linguists or the Institute of Translation and Interpreting can certify their own translations. These translations are accepted for all official purposes by the Home Office and all other UK government bodies.
The Home Office accepts certified translations of divorce certificates provided by a UK-based translator if:
- the translator is a member of an official professional organisation, for example the Institute of Translation & Interpreting (ITI) or the Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIoL).
- the translator works for a company that belongs to the Association of Translation Companies.
