About apostilles

Do you want to use a sworn translation abroad? Then you will often need an apostille.

What is an apostille?

An apostille is an official declaration to certify that the signature of the sworn translator on your document is valid. It is often required to use your document for official purposes abroad. Apostilles are valid in all countries that have signed the Apostille Treaty. 

What is a ‘normal’ legalization?

Legalization is the process of ensuring a document can be used for official purposes in a different country. 

If you want to use a translation in a country that has not signed the Apostille Treaty, our sworn translators first have to request a legalization of the translation from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. 

This legalized translation then has to be legalized once more by the consulate or embassy of the country where you want to use the translation.

How can I get an apostille or legalization?

If you need an apostille or legalization on your sworn translation, our sworn translators can request them for you.

What our customers say

Very efficient. The translation I asked for was ready ahead of time. The team is also very helpful, providing advice on steps such as legalisation of documents etc., for people like me with no experience in those matters. They can also assist in completing some of the steps required. I warmly recommend them.

While looking for a sworn translator in Belgium, I came across the website of Certifiedtranslations.be - I was a bit wary to begin with but completely without reason. From the quick and friendly reply to my first email to the finished product delivered by registered post to my home (all within 1 week for 2 birth certificates), Certified Translations, and Ramona in particular, were professional, kind, competent, quick and replied to all my questions very promptly. 5 star customer service!

Perfect, fast and friendly service! These people know their business. I needed those translations fast, and they nicely surprised me. The final result was "outstanding"! My translator was Ramona, and no efforts or question was too much. She even answered my dummy questions with a smile. Thank you Ramona for your perfect service, I really do appreciate that! I surely can recommend "Beëdigde Vertalingen". If you want things perfectly done, this is the place to be.
