Do you need a sworn or legalised translation? We offer a personal service, work very discretely and deliver high-quality translations. Rest assured that your official documents are in good hands.

Translatio can help you out with sworn translations from German and English into Dutch and from Dutch into German and English.

Our sworn translations are valid throughout Belgium and the Netherlands. Do you require a sworn translation for use abroad? Then you might also need to have that translation legalised. We are happy to assist you with that. Do you have any questions or do you require more information? Please do not hesitate contact us.

A sworn translation contains the signature and stamp of a translator who has sworn an oath and is registered with the court of first instance, c.q. the district court.

A legalised translation contains the signature and stamp of a translator who has sworn an oath and is registered with the court of first instance, c.q. the district court as well as a stamp of the court and the signature of the clerk of the court.

  • sworn = translator’s signature + stamp
  • legalised = translator’s signature + stamp + court stamp

In most cases a sworn translation suffices. Sometimes, however, documents intended to be used abroad must also be legalise. Please check with the relevant authority or consult this link.
