Certified Translation

In my capacity as a state-certified and sworn-in translator at the Frankfurt am Main Regional Court (Landgericht Frankfurt am Main) and the Koblenz Higher Regional Court (Oberlandesgericht Koblenz) I am authorised to translate your official documents such as certificates, diplomas, contracts, court judgments, powers of attorney, deeds, expert's opinions etc. from and into German, English and Polish. I do this on my own responsibility by certifying the conformance of the translation with the original document by stamp and signature.

Here you can find a list of documents, which most frequently require a certified translation.

My certified translations are recognised by all public authorities, administrative bodies, courts, universities and other public institutions across Germany. As there is no automatic guarantee that translations certified by a German-based court translator will be accepted everywhere abroad, it is wise to enquire directly to the relevant authority for the intended target country of your translation. De facto however, certified translations from Germany are honoured everywhere without trouble.

You may possibly be asked by a German authority to submit an "amtlich beglaubigte Kopie" or "öffentlich beglaubigte Kopie" of your document. An officially certified copy of this kind has nothing to do with certified translation. You can obtain a certified copy of your document at a Bürgeramt (Citizens Office) or an Ortsgericht. You will find contact details of the Ortsgericht in Frankfurt under this link. In Mainz you can obtain a certified copy of your document from the Stadtverwaltung.

Please also pay attention to the Frequently Asked Questions.

Detailed information on legal translation can be found here.

Legal basis:
Authorisation by the Frankfurt am Main Regional Court (Landgericht Frankfurt am Main), file number 316 E - 95 - 2 (see Database of Interpreters and Translators)

  • Was ist eine Beglaubigung?

    „Beglaubigen“ bedeutet im Amtsdeutsch so viel wie die Richtigkeit von etwas bescheinigen. Man kann etwa eine Unterschrift, eine Kopie oder eine Übersetzung beglaubigen. Dadurch wird deren Echtheit für amtliche Verwendungszwecke nachgewiesen.

  • Is Google Translate a good alternative?

    The notion that translators are an endangered species has already been circulating for some time. Machine translation (MT) offered by companies such as Google or Bing is, after all, free of charge and available any time. Granted: MT is improving year on year. It is fairly adequate for private purposes, for example when you are abroad and need quick help with directions or a hotel booking. Even if you cannot rely fully on the offered translations, communication is simplified.

  • Übersetzen von Führerscheinen - alles, was Sie wissen müssen

    Im Rahmen der Übersetzung ist höchste Präzision gefragt, um ein Ergebnis sicherzustellen, aus dem hervorgeht, welche Fahrzeuge geführt werden dürfen. In manchen Fällen ist es notwendig, Fußnoten mit zusätzlichen Erläuterungen hinzuzufügen. Eine Klassifizierung erfolgt von Amts wegen und liegt im Ermessen der Führerscheinstelle. Allerdings kann ein engagierter Übersetzer auf die Besonderheiten einer Fahrerlaubnisklasse hinweisen und eine mögliche deutsche Entsprechung vorschlagen, was bisweilen intensive Recherche voraussetzt.
