Certified Translation Services in Switzerland

In Switzerland, certified translations are generally performed by professional translators and, depending on the document's intended use, may be certified by a notary public, attorney, or another authorized body. For legal, financial, or government documents, using a professional translator to ensure high-quality and accurate translations is crucial.

Switzerland is a multilingual country, with four official languages - German, French, Italian, and Romansh. As such, certified translations may be needed to translate documents to and from these languages and others.

Translayte is a global translation agency with proven experience in providing professional translations. Our expert translators are proficient in over 60 languages and familiar with Swiss regulations and requirements for certified translations. Whether you need your documents translated into German, English, French, Romansh, or Italian, our team can deliver accurate translations, usually within 24 hours, with 100% acceptance guarantee by Swiss authorities.

In addition to translating your documents, we can also assist in getting them certified, if required. The certification typically comes as a written statement included with the translated document, delivered as an electronic PDF file, or as a physical copy if you prefer. You can then submit this translation along with the original document for your visa, legal, business, or school application.

We understand that confidentiality and data protection are crucial, especially when handling sensitive documents. We are committed to providing an efficient, secure, and confidential translation service to meet your specific needs.

Please note that the specific requirements for certified translations can vary between different authorities or institutions in Switzerland. Always verify the current requirements with the relevant entities or a trusted language service provider.
