Certified translation English – German at AKV Language Services Berlin
What would Berlin be without its international flair? Each year thousands of people move to Berlin from other countries, which is what motivated me to specialise in certified translations over the past few years.
I am a ermächtigte Übersetzerin (authorised or sworn translator) for the English language at the Regional Courts in Berlin and Frankfurt am Main. According to section 142 (3) ZPO, my certified translations are recognised Germany-wide and can be used without restriction in Berlin, Hesse, other federal states and abroad to some extent.
Nevertheless, it is always wise to check in advance whether the competent authority has special requirements for the certified translation.
Documents for which I can provide you with a certified translation in English and German include the following:
certificate of no impediment
certificate of registration
and much more
Benefit from my experience as a sworn translator for certified translations. I can assist you quickly and without complication and this also includes organisational issues. You simply need to send a complete copy (in high-quality) of the documents to be translated as a scan or photo via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and you will receive a quote from me as quickly as possible. You are also welcome to use my contact form.The order procedure is usually carried out completely online and you will receive your certified translation by post within a few days. I only need to see the original document for the translation in exceptional cases. Upon request, you can also collect your translation in person at my office in Berlin-Prenzlauer Berg. Please arrange an appointment in order to do so.You can find more detailed information about certified translations below.
Certified translation for abroad
If you require a certified translation for abroad, you should inquire in advance as to whether the competent authority will accept the translation from Germany. Upon request, I can also help you with this.
Some countries require the court to confirm the translator is authorised. In my case, the Berlin Regional Court or the Frankfurt am Main Regional Court are responsible for this court-certification. It costs about €20 and processing times are usually short.
Certification of copiesCertified copies of documents can, for example, be obtained at a Bürgeramt (Citizens’ Registration Office) as an official certification or at a notary as a public certification. You can find more information for Berlin in the Service Portal for the City of Berlin or at the Berlin Chamber of Notaries.
Other cities provide similar information sites.
