Authorised translations

WHAT is an authorised translation?

Authorised translation is an official translation of a document. It is authentic and legally valid, with the same authority as the original. An authorised translation is devised by an authorised translator, and it is always made either from Finnish or Swedish or to Finnish or Swedish, one of the official languages of Finland.

An authorised translation includes the translator’s official confirmation, signature and stamp, and the original document or its copy is attached to the translation. The translator observes absolute secrecy and confidentiality. Authorised translations sometimes called official translations or sworn translations.

If you need the authorised translation to be attached to the original document, we're happy to provide this service. In this case, please bring the original document to us either personally or by sending it in certified mail. The requirements for Finnish authorised translations do not require the translation to be attached to the original text, a copy is acceptable, but in certain countries requirements may vary. Please always let us know the requirements given to you, if any. We'll do our best to help.
