Before we can answer the above questions. We will explain what is a certified translation is. A certified translation can only be provided by a certified translator. A certified translator is a unique and reserved title for members who have qualified and registered with the association of translators in their province. A certified translator can provide an official and accurate translation of a document from a specific language to another language. A Canadian certified translator will have applied and passed the tests to become certified with a specific provincial or territorial association of translators and interpreters. In most cases, translations must be prepared by a Canadian Certified Translator to meet the criteria of Global Affairs Canada and most diplomatic missions. Global Affairs Canada will only authenticate an official document that is written in English or French. If your document contains a foreign language, however, it will need to be certified by a Canadian certified translator. If the document is completely written in a foreign language, you will also need to provide a certified English or French translation. The translation should be made by a certified translator in Canada in order for it to be accepted for authentication.
