Completed by qualified Romanian translators

Getting married? Studying abroad? Do you have legal documents you must have translated? Some authorities demand that you supply certified translations of your official documents. This means that even if you are bilingual, the relevant authority is unlikely to accept your own translation. They will be looking for a translation independently carried out and by an appropriately qualified Romanian linguist.

We offer 3 main types of certification in Bedfordshire

It is important that you check with the appropriate authority which type of certification they will accept.

Digital certification

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. Each page of the translation itself is also stamped. This type of certification is generally supplied in digital format. By special arrangement, we can also provide the certification in hard copy format by post.

Notarised, sworn or legalised translation

The second type of certification is where the translation is stamped and signed by a Notary Public. A notarised translation is also sometimes referred to as a “sworn” translation, but this phrase isn’t often used in the UK. It can also be called a legalised translation.

A Notary Public is an officer of the law empowered to attest or confirm certain oaths, statutory declarations and documents under his seal.

Working from your documents, our qualified linguists will provide an accurate translation, carefully checking the details. Once certified by us, a Notary Public will add the official seal.

You do not need to be located near our offices as the entire process is conducted digitally and by post.

British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) legalisation of translated documents

Some authorities insist on this extra step. Once notarised by a Notary Public and confirmed as true translations, the translations and any associated original documents are further verified and stamped by the FCO.

How is the cost for certified Romanian translations calculated?

  • The cost depends on the level of certification: digital, notarisation or FCO legalisation.

While you’re here… some quite interesting facts about the Romanian language.

Romanian is a Romance language spoken by about 24 million people mainly in Romania, Moldova and Ukraine. Romanian retains a number of features of Latin, such as noun cases, which have disappeared from Romance languages. Romanian contains many words taken from the surrounding Slavic languages, and also from French, Old Church Slavonic, German, Greek and Turkish. Romanian first appeared in writing during the 16th century, mainly in religious texts and other documents. The earliest known text in Romanian dates from 1521 and is a letter from Neacşu of Câmpulung to the mayor of Braşov. Neacşu wrote in a version of the old Cyrillic alphabet similar to the one for Old Church Slavonic, which was used in Walachia and Moldova until 1859. From the late 16th century a version of the Latin alphabet using Hungarian spelling conventions was used to write Romanian in Translyvania. Then in the late 18th century a spelling system based on Italian was adopted. A version of the Cyrillic alphabet was used in the Soviet Republic of Moldova until 1989, when they switched to the Romanian version of the Latin alphabet. Courtesy of Omniglot
