Frequent questions

The quickest thing is to send us an email attaching the document you need translated.

We will then send you an approximate quote and deadline, which must be formalized through order confirmation

A sworn translation is a translation that has legal validity, both in Spain and abroad. It must be done by a sworn translator, authorized by the Administration. Documents that usually require a sworn translation are: birth, marriage or death certificates, notarial powers and deeds, academic certifications, criminal record certificates, company memorandum and articles of association, etc.

The apostille process consists of placing an Apostille or annotation on a public document to certify the authenticity of the signature placed on documents issued in a country that is a signatory of the XII Hague Convention, of October 5, 1961. This effectively eliminates the requirement for Consular Legalization of Foreign Public Documents

Thus, documents issued in a signatory country of the Convention that have been certified by an Apostille are recognized in any other country of the Convention without the need for another type of authentication.
