TRANSLATION IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE NOT EVERYONE SPEAKS ENGLISH

Sure, English is the most commonly spoken language but that does not mean you can overlook the people who do not speak it. Even England is home to significant populations of foreign and minority language speakers. And just because a person can speak some English, that does not mean they can speak it well enough to cope in all situations. Holding a basic conversation is one thing. Easy and effective communication is another.

TRANSLATION IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE PEOPLE PREFER THEIR NATIVE LANGUAGE

English is the most widely spoken language but that is only if you take second language speakers into account. And therein lies the rub. Almost without exception, people respond better to the language they grew up speaking. To effectively sell to people, it is not enough to speak a language that they understand especially if their understanding is limited. You must speak to them in the language their heart speaks.

TRANSLATION CONNECTS THE GLOBAL ECONOMY

While English has been periodically crowned as the language of global business, translation and interpreting services remain a vital part of doing business around the world.

    WHAT IS A CERTIFIED TRANSLATION?

    According to the American Translators’ Association (ATA), a certified translation is a translation accompanied by a signed statement attesting that the translation is accurate and complete to the best of the translator’s knowledge and ability. Any translator or translation company may certify a translation.

    As such, a certified translation can be defined as a document that has been translated from one language to another by a professional translator with the following assurance:

  • That the translation is true, complete and accurate rendering of the content of the source document.
  • That the translation is done by a translator knowledgeable in both the languages required in the translation.
  • WHEN IS A CERTIFIED TRANSLATION REQUIRED?

    Please check and verify with the officers-in-charge attending to you at the various authorities and government bodies, the documents required for submission and if certified translation are required for these documents.

    In Singapore, it is common for certified translation to be requested by the following bodies:

    Immigration and Checkpoints Authority of Singapore (ICA)
    In Singapore, the ICA requires certified translation of documents that are not created originally in English. This includes but not limited to documents such as Educational Certificates, Birth Certificates, Death Certificates, Marriage Certificates, Divorce Certificates and etc.

    Other Singapore Government Bodies
    These includes but not limited to Ministry of Man Power (MOM), Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (ACRA), Ministry of Education (MOE), Registration of Marriage (ROM), Land Transport Authority (LTA), Traffic Police, Singapore Police Force (SPF) and etc.

    CAN I TRANSLATE MY OWN DOCUMENT?

    A high level of assurance is required by the requesting authority to ensure that the document has not been forged and that the content fulfils the requirement set out by the authority.

    A certified translation provided by a professional translation body can, from a neutral standpoint, attest and assure the authority accepting the documents that the content of the original document is true, complete and accurate.

    It is, thus, not advisable for you to perform your own translation.

    WHAT IS THE COST FOR A CERTIFIED TRANSLATION?

    Cost of translation varies from language to language. It is also dependent on the volume of document that is to be translated. For a non-obligatory consultation and quotation, feel free to connect with us!

    WHY NOTARIZATION IS STILL REQUIRED AFTER A CERTIFIED TRANSLATION IS DONE?

    A certified translation is provided by a professional translator or translation company. This certification carries an official declaration signed and stamped by an authorized representative from the translation company with the following assurance:

  • That the translation is true, complete and accurate rendering of the content of the source document.
  • That the translation is done by a translator knowledgeable in both the languages required in the translation.
  • This is only an attestation to the authenticity of the translation provided.In order to officiate it, the certified translation must be notarized by a Notary Public. Notarization is necessary if the translated document is to be used in a foreign country or when it is an explicit requirement by the authorities or government agencies.For example, any non-English documents that are to be submitted to the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority of Singapore will require English translation, and the translation must be made official prior to its submission.According to the ICA, official translations are translations that have been certified/attested by the relevant embassies or notarized by Notary Public in Singapore.However, not all embassies will attest private translations and even fewer will provide translation services. Most Notaries Public will also require your translation to be certified by translation companies before they are notarized.
