Sworn translation through the Court in Cyprus
Sworn Translation, or as we call it "Affidavit" is an alternative term for an oath through the Court - in our case for sworn translations.
Affidavits of translations are generally accepted by most local and international organizations since such translations are certified as a sworn translation through the District Court of Nicosia or Limassol or Larnaka or Paphos in Cyprus.
We can certify all our translations through the Cyprus District Courts.
Sworn translation vs normal translation
A sworn translation is different from a normal translation insofar as it is signed and sealed by a sworn translator and is therefore regarded as having official and formal status by the authorities.
Furthermore, sworn translations can only be provided in hard copies, given that they need to be signed and stamped by the translator.
However, the original documents can be passed on in any form (email, WhatsApp, fax, etc.).
Such translations can also be certified by Apostle for legal validity in foreign countries. We can also further certify such translations through Foreign Embassies and Consulates in Cyprus.
When is a sworn translation required?
This is often necessary in the case of translating legal documents or documents for official use.
A document that is written in a foreign language and presented to official bodies (e.g. administrative bodies, a school, a college, a university, an employer, a notary) is normally accompanied by an exact Sworn Translation of the original text. In this case, a sworn translator is required.
On the other hand, a sworn translation can be used to guarantee the accuracy of the information translated, given that a sworn translator takes responsibility for the translation with his/her signature and seal.
Usually at the bottom of the certified or sworn translation, mention must be made of the translator’s full name and the Court of Appeals under whose jurisdiction the official translator comes.
In the statement the sworn translator confirms that the translation is a truthful rendering in the target language of the text in the appended (copy of the) original document.
