NAATI Translation Service

If you are submitting non-English documents as part of an official application in Australia, then you'd need a Certified Translation.

We explain some of the requirements below.


Certified translation requirements in Australia

In Australia, translations to be used for official purposes require a certified translation. Any document in a language other than English must be accompanied by a certified English translation.

A translator in Australia must be accredited by the National Accreditation Authority for Translators and Interpreters. Their certified translations need to have a NAATI stamp applied by an translator that is certified or recognised by NAATI.

A Certified Translation is a translation that bears the stamp and signature of a Certified Translator. Certification means that the translator affirms that the translation is true, accurate and reliable for official use. Such translations are often prepared entirely by a certified translator, but sometimes the initial work might be done by a non-certified translator and then checked and issued by a certified translator. 

Note that for certified translations, only the translation is certified and not the source document. As the translator cannot verify the authenticity of the source document, they are not qualified to say anything about whether your document is ‘authentic’. For this reason, Translayte commonly refers to the ‘source document’ and avoid terms like the ‘original’ and our Quality Control process ensures that the translation produced is a true and accurate translation of the source document submitted by our clients.


Translations produced abroad, or for Australian embassies

A translator outside Australia does not need to be accredited, but they must endorse the translation with their full name, address, telephone number, and details of their qualifications and experience in the language being translated.

This approach will assist in processing applications expeditiously as it may sometimes be difficult to find NAATI translators if you are based outside of Australia. When providing an English translation, a copy of the original document must also be provided. Failure to provide an English translation of supporting documentation may delay processing and result in the document not being considered as part of the visa application.

If you are applying to an Australian embassy or institution based outside of Australia, then it is possible that a standard certified translation could be acceptable, wherein Translayte, as the translation agency, certifies that the translation is true and accurate. This is often a more cost effective and quicker option.


Where certified translations are required in Australia

Translayte can provide Certified Translations that are accepted by any of the following agencies and organisations in Australia.

  • the Department of Home Affairs
  • Australian Border Force
  • Australian Passport Office
  • Office of the Migration Agents Registration Authority (OMARA)
  • Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade

Our certified translations are also accepted by universities, banks, local provinces, courts and foreign embassies based in Australia.
