When do translations need to be court sworn?

In France, sworn translations are most commonly required when public administrations request that documents such as birth/marriage/death certificates or diplomas be translated into French.
Any translated document that will be used in court in France needs to be translated and stamped by an “expert” translator who’s associated with a French Court of Appeal or Court of Cassation.

How does it work?

Court sworn translators often want to see and stamp the originals of the documents that they’re asked to translate.
Our court sworn translator works from scans of documents so you can just send your document(s) to us by e-mail and we will send the translation(s) to you by post.

It really is that simple!


  • Birth/death/marriage certificates: 40-45€ each.
  • Diplomas and transcripts: 35€ per page.

For all other documents, please contact us for a precise quote.

*Additional costs apply for “rush” translations.
