Notary translating official documents
Submission of official documents to foreign governments or to international institutions is done after translation into the language of the state or institution where the translated documents are being submitted; or into any other language in accordance with the requirements. In most cases, translating official documents requires the stamp of a certified notary and an apostille stamp approving the original document.
Translation of official documents is a broad subject that includes many types of documents submitted to various institutions including: academic institutions, government offices, public institutions, tax authorities, consulates, embassies, national authorities, or any other institution.
An official document of the State of Israel must be translated with attention given to the compatibility of the translation to the required language and matching the translation to the wording of the original document. One should not rely on computerized translation, as it is necessary to have knowledge of the rules of writing and an understanding of the requirements of the foreign government to which the documents are being submitted. Along with the translation, there are states that require a notary certification of the translated document in order to consider it an authentic document.
Translation of official documents is also required when submitting official documents of a foreign state to national institutions or official bodies in Israel.
