Cantonese Certified, Notarised, FCO Legalized Translation

We provide Cantonese certified, notarised, FCO legalised translations in locations across the UK.

The types of Cantonese certification and notarisation

We are able to offer three types of certified Cantonese translation. It is important that you check with the appropriate authority which type of certification they will accept.

The first type of certification comes in the form of a letter printed on Knockhundred’s letterhead certifying that, as a professional translation company, Knockhundred has undertaken the translation.

The second type of certification is where the translation is stamped and signed by a Notary Public.

The third type of certification is when authorities require some notarised documents to be further certified/legalised by the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO).

Cantonese notarised AND/OR FCO LEGALIZED translation services

Knockhundred offers notarised translation services to our clients based in locations across the UK. This means that, if required, in addition to our own certified translation, we will have our own Notary Public certify or "notarise" the Cantonese translation.

A notarised Cantonese translation is also sometimes referred to as a "sworn" translation. It can also be called a Cantonese legalised translation.

We offer notarised Cantonese translations of...

  • birth certificates
  • death certificates
  • marriage certificates
  • divorce certificates and decree absolute
  • education certificates
  • qualification certificates and other qualification documents
  • certificate of no impediment (also referred to as CNI)
  • legal statements
  • declarations and legal declaration documents
  • Notarised translation costs from £145.00 + VAT (if applicable)
  • FCO legalisation and translation costs from £215.00 + VAT
Foreign and Commonwealth Office certification (FCO certification)

If you (or the public body to whom you are submitting your notarised documents) requires further certification, we can also arrange for our Notary Public to have the Cantonese documents certified by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. This process is also referred to as FCO certification or legalisation.

Some official bodies require this additional certification and we strongly advise you to find out in advance whether you require this service. In this instance, you are usually able to use the notarised and certified Cantonese documents outside of the UK.

The FCO certified Cantonese translation also contains a translation Apostille - an official FCO stamp confirming that the translation is legal and official.

Turnaround times for certified and notarised Cantonese translation

We can normally translate and certify your documents within a 24 hour period. However, you will need to allow additional time for posting hard copies of the original documents.

Where documents require notarisation, we would normally require 4 business days turnaround time.

Need notarised Cantonese translation services in a hurry?

We also offer a fast-track notarised Cantonese translation service. If you opt for this service, we will arrange for the certified Cantonese translation to be delivered by courier to our Notary Public who will in turn courier the documents back to you. In the case of a single certificate, this would reduce the turnaround time to within 2 business days, sometimes even possible within 24 hours (plus the initial delivery time of the originals from you to Knockhundred Translations). If you require this service, please contact us.

How much does notarised Cantonese translation cost?

For a single document (e.g. a birth certificate, a death certificate, a marriage certificate etc), we charge from £145.00 + VAT (if applicable).

This price includes Cantonese translation costs, Knockhundred's company certification and notarisation by our Notary Public.

We can accept payment in sterling, Euros or US dollars. Payment can be made directly into one of our accounts or via credit/debit card over the phone.

WHILE YOU’RE HERE... SOME QUITE INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT THE Cantonese LANGUAGE

Cantonese, or Standard Cantonese, is a variety of the Chinese language spoken around Canton (Guangzhou) and its vicinity in southeastern China. In mainland China, it is the lingua franca of the province of Guangdong and neighbouring areas such as Guangxi, being the majority language of the Pearl River Delta. It is the dominant and official language of Hong Kong and Macau. Cantonese is also widely spoken amongst overseas Chinese in Southeast Asia (most notably in Vietnam and Malaysia, as well as in Singapore and Cambodia to a lesser extent) and throughout the Western world.
