What is a notarized translation?

A notarized translation is a legally valid official translation of the original document whose content is identical to the original. It is produced by a qualified translator and is then certified by a notary public.

What do you need a notarized translation for?

You often need this type of specialised translation in international business transactions, as well as for consulates and administrative bodies, such as the ones in Zurich. According to Swiss standards, the translated document is only legally effective for international use with the notarial certification.

Are there any examples of use?

Do you visit the Zurich Commercial Register Office? Or would you prefer to have your documents authenticated or apostilled by the State Chancellery of Zurich for use abroad? For this, you will usually need the help of an accredited and certified translation agency. Also, with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH), the University of Zurich, or the Migration Office in Zurich, you’ll usually face problems without a certified translation.

You may need a certified translation for the following documents:

  • Diplomas
  • Birth documentation
  • Passports, visas
  • Patents
  • Certificates
  • Marriage and divorce certificates
  • Migration papers
  • Extracts from commercial registers
  • Residence certificates
  • etc.

Do I need an apostille for my document?

Depending on whether you need a contract, articles of association, a Trade and Companies Register excerpt or visa or passport documents, the requirements involved can change considerably. We recommend that you check with the relevant authorities in advance to find out exactly what is required and which services you need from us. Only then can we ensure that you will get the appropriate service.
