Professional Certified Translation Services
As part of our Certified Translation Services, BLS will arrange for a professional translation to be carried out, which will then be stamped with our ATC-approved company stamp, and a letter of authenticity will be provided, signed by one of the directors of BLS, confirming the document has been translated by a qualified translator, and that we believe it to be an accurate and ‘true’ translation.
Business Language Services has been a full member of the Association of Translation Companies for many years. This means we have been fully vetted by their professional ethics committee, we adhere to a strict code of professional conduct and carry full professional indemnity insurance cover to safeguard the interests of the translation purchaser. Our membership of the ATC affords us certified translator status, and enables us to offer a Certified Translation Service to companies or individuals.
Certification requirements are different in the UK to other countries, so you should always check with the requesting body what level of certification, authentication or legalisation is required. If you are not sure which documents you need to legalise, you should contact the relevant Consulate or Embassy. Business Language Services is well-equipped to assist you in this process.
