Sworn translation

What is a sworn translation?

The sworn translation of an appraisal or translation is necessary in all cases where it is necessary to certify that the appraiser has faithfully performed the task received, making the document official by swearing before a Registrar.

Our expert translator will draw up the deed, specifically translating the foreign document which must have legal value. The translator will physically present the document at the offices of the competent chancellery to swear that he or she has carried out his or her task in order to reveal the truth of the original documents.

Note: It is the client's responsibility to obtain information on specific requirements from the requesting authorities, particularly with regard to the need for a sworn translation or legalization or apostille.

Why do you need a sworn translation?

For your documents to and from abroad

Legal documents, balance sheets, certificates of pending charges and criminal records, educational qualifications with the list of examinations taken, medical reports, testamentary documents, birth certificates, residence permits and licenses, proxies and powers of attorney, tax returns, etc.

In essence, any document, whether belonging to a private individual or to a company or institution, involves subjects from different countries. In order to be able to swear a translation, it is necessary that the source language or the target language is Italian. In the case of translations between foreign languages, therefore, the translator must compose the documents in the following order: first the document in a foreign language and the translation into Italian with the oath report and, then, the translation from Italian into the other foreign language with the relative oath report.

The procedure


The regulations vary from city to city. Translations Universe cooperates with the Registrar's Office in Martina Franca (TA) The translation must correspond to the source document in its entirety and may not contain omissions or variations of any kind and must respect the same format as the original. Any stamps, seals, logos, or watermarks in the background of the page must be translated or, if unreadable, indicated with the words "illegible". Any signatures present in the original document must also be indicated.

The translator, upon presentation of a valid identification document, must present the translated document together with the original and an oath of oath form for experts and translators specially prepared by the stationery and filled in at the office.
