Sworn Translators for Belgium

Are you in need of a sworn translation for your immigration, legal, academic, or financial application in Belgium?

Belgian authorities typically require an official translation of any document that is not in one of the country's official languages - Dutch, French, or German, depending on the region. Navigating the specifics of these requirements can be complex and demanding.

At Translayte, we have a clear understanding of each Belgian authority's specifications, and have sworn Belgian translators on our team, ready to assist you.

Sworn Translation Requirements in Belgium 

In Belgium, translation requirements for documents depend on the region and the purpose of the document. 

Belgium has three official languages: Dutch, French, and German. The country is divided into three main regions, each with its own primary language:

  1. Flanders, where Dutch is the official language
  2. Wallonia, where French is the official language
  3. The Brussels-Capital Region, which is officially bilingual (Dutch and French)
  4. And a small German-speaking community in the east of the country

When translating your documents for official purposes in Belgium, such as legal proceedings, visa applications, academic enrolment, or international business transactions, you need to consider the language of the region where the document will be used.

For official translations, it is advisable to hire a sworn translator registered in Belgium. These translators are registered with the Belgian Chamber of Translators and Interpreters (CBTI-BKVT), the authority responsible for registering translators and interpreters in the country. Using a certified translator ensures that your translations will be accurate, professional, and compliant with local regulations.

But if you are a citizen of Belgium and you need to translate your documents for use in a foreign country, you need to find out the certified/sworn translation requirement of the destination country and follow it. As a rule, before document translation, your documents need to be legalized in Belgium by the issuing authority of the document. Translayte can also assist you with this.
