Certified translations are not only very important for legal documents but also for just about any paper, which contains highly sensitive information. Corporate companies, after all, often require nothing less than the most accurate documents, may it be a diploma or birth certificate, to name a few. A “casual” translation even by a native speaker of the language just will not do because it doesn’t assure the quality of the translation. This is even more true if you are handling immigration papers, as most officers look for a certified translation of everything.
There is an undeniable preference for certified translations over other types of translations. Proof enough of this is the popularity of certification programs like the one in this site: https://www.umb.edu/academics/caps/certificates/spanishtrans. People who enroll in such programs often do so because of the soaring demand for accurate translations. Of course, there is also no harm in honing one’s language expertise to meet multilingual challenges.
What is good is that great certified translation services hire only the most qualified professional translators in their respective languages. Some even go further and get their company ISO and USCIS–certified http://www.iso.org/iso/home/standards/certification.htm in order to really ensure costumers that their services are nothing less than high quality.
With that said, the most apparent advantages of opting for professional certified translation companies are the following:
It simply would not to do to settle for translations that are not certified when handling pertinent documents. A translation that has been certified can lessen the risk of hurdles in the future and could even save you time and money. This is especially true if what you are applying for or handling is time-constrained and very sensitive.
It is a veritable time saver since you will not have to go through the process of getting every foreign document notarized. This is usually the SOP in just about any agency or company requiring them. What is good is that services that render certified translations do this for you.
Finally yet importantly, you can rest assured that all the translations are accurate. The amount of peace of mind that this can bring to not only you but also the other parties involved cannot be denied.
