What is a sworn translator?

A sworn translator is authorised to make certified translations. This is necessary for the translation of official documents such as diplomas, passports, a medical certificate and civil status documents.

Working as a translator is a liberal profession. This means that there are no legal requirements. In some cases a sworn translator must be called in.

The profession of sworn translator is protected by the Sworn Interpreters and Translators Act (WBTV), which is implemented by the Legal Aid Board.

What is a sworn translation Spanish?

Translations of deeds or documents from the Civil Registry must be certified. This also applies to notarial deeds and documents, to all documents that must serve as proof and to diplomas and certificates.

A Spanish translation is sworn by placing a final declaration at the end of the translated document. In this statement, the sworn translator declares that the translated text is a faithful representation of the original text. The translator’s signature and translator’s stamp are placed below the statement. With the declaration that the Spanish translator places under his translation, he commits himself to performing the translation to the best of his knowledge and ability.


The authenticity of the signature of the sworn translator can be confirmed by placing an apostille on the Spanish translation. An apostille applies to countries that have ratified the Hague Convention of 5 October 1961 and is valid in Spain, among other countries. The apostille is placed on the document in question by the registrar of the court where the translator’s signature has been deposited. There are costs involved in placing an apostille. Lingüística Translation Agency can take this work off your hands and take care of applying for and processing the apostille.

This means that only translators who are listed in the register and who are sworn in, are allowed to make certified translations. Translators who are registered with the RBTV meet certain quality and integrity requirements.
