Whether it is for your driver's license, your birth certificate or any other official document, a sworn translation is sometimes necessary. But don't panic, it's easier than it looks!
1) What is a sworn translation?
A sworn translation is a translation carried out by a translator approved by the court of appeal. This type of translation is often needed for official documents such as birth certificates, driver's licenses, etc. Sworn translations are enforceable, meaning they have the same value as an original document.
2) How much does it cost?
The price of a sworn translation varies according to the number of pages to be translated. In general, it takes between 20 and 30 euros per document. It is also possible to find packages at more attractive prices if you have several documents to be translated.
3) Where to get information?
To find a translator approved by the Court of Appeal, simply do an internet search or ask your local administration for advice. You can also directly contact an association of translators approved by the Court of Appeal, such as ATAF (Association des Traacteurs Sworn de France).
Sworn translations are often needed for official documents such as birth certificates or driving licenses. It is important to be well informed before calling on a translator approved by the court of appeal because the price may vary depending on the number of pages to be translated.
