Certified Translations

When do translations need to be certified?
In France, certified translations (“traductions assermentées” in French) are most commonly required when government agencies and administrations request that documents such as birth, marriage and death certificates, driving licences, diplomas, etc. be translated into French and stamped by an “expert” translator who’s affiliated with a French Court.

The sworn translators in our team work with scans and high quality photos of documents, so you can simply upload a copy of the document that you would like us to translate via our website. If you need certified translations for a citizenship application, we may need to stamp the original documents to prove that we’ve seen them (this depends on the specific requirements of your local Prefecture). Please head over to the Frequently Asked Questions section on the Contact Us page for more info.

Here’s how our certified translation service works:

Click on the “Order a certified translation” button at the bottom of this page and then select which type of document you would like us to translate.

Upload the document that you would like us to translate and add it to your cart.

Pay for your translation. You can make a bank transfer, send a cheque or pay via PayPal (you can use PayPal to pay with a credit card even if you don’t have a PayPal account).

You will receive an e-copy of the translation in PDF format as soon as it’s ready, as well as a hard copy a couple of days later.
