A sworn translation is an official translation carried out by a sworn translator, also known as a certified translator. This translation is generally required for administrative or legal procedures.

A sworn translator is a translation professional who has taken an oath before a Court of Appeal (Cour d’appel). They are authorized to certify the authenticity and accuracy of translations of official documents.

Commonly translated documents include civil status documents, diplomas, contracts, court rulings, immigration documents, notarial deeds, etc.

Government authorities, courts, schools and other institutions often require sworn translations to guarantee the accuracy and authenticity of documents.

A sworn translation is carried out by a sworn translator and bears a registration number attesting to the accuracy of the translation. A certified translation is carried out by a professional translator or agency, bears the seal of the translator or agency, and its conformity is attested by a simple affidavit.

The turnaround time depends on the length and complexity of the document. In general, a sworn translation can be completed in a few days.
