What is a certified translator?

The professional designation of ‘translator’ has no legal protection as such. Which means that almost anyone can officially designate themselves to be a translator, and can offer the services associated with that vocation.
As a customer, you therefore run the risk of encountering someone who is less than adequate at his or her job, but who alleges that they possess professional skills. Fortunately, you are not required to rely upon the self-assessment of a self-styled translator. There is a professional group of ‘certified translators’ who have satisfied all formal requirements to enable them to produce translations to a professional standard. By way of training, a certified translator, also known as a sworn translator, may have completed a course of study in language, after which he or she may have successfully passed a set of certification tests.
For yourself as a customer, the vocational designation of ‘certified translator’ demonstrates that you are working with a professional. Pay very close attention to the choice of words! Here, it takes just a single word to deliver a quality guarantee.

Which texts might a certified translator actually translate?

In principle, certified translators can work on any kind of text into the desired target language. These may include operating instructions, marketing documents or packaging slips, to name just a few examples. Sworn translators are particularly sought-after whenever a translation needs to be recognized as ‘official’.
Only a certified translator is entitled to produce a translation of this kind. He or she is also authorized to assess a translation as ‘correct and complete’. These forms of authorization are especially important whenever a document constitutes part of a legal action, for example in relation to a dispute about the honoring of contractual terms and conditions between two internationally active companies.
The capabilities of a certified translator do not necessarily have to become involved in court negotiations. Bureaucratic procedures such as citizenship constitute typical examples. At the end of the day, important decisions should never be taken on the basis of incorrectly presented facts.

How do you go about finding a certified translator?
