Translations in Colombia
We offer official certified English Translations in Colombia as our most common translation service. Most commonly we translate English to Spanish, or Spanish to English, however we have a large database of persons who assist us with translations to other languages as well. A Certified Translator in Colombia is authorized by the Colombian Government to translate official and non-offical documents from one language to another. There are several types of documents that are required to be translated when submitting an application or carrying out international process, such as birth, marriage, divorce, criminal records , death certificates or accademic records.
Through a seal and a signature, the translator certifies that the translation is correct and complete, and takes responsibility for what is translated. This way, the translator basically acts like a notary authenticating a document. A certified translator is also authorized to be an official interpreter, translating declarations and affidavits before a notary or a judge.
