If you need a Portuguese translation for business purposes, we will gladly assist you in finding the right sworn translator.

on the other hand, have to be translated literally, there is no room for personal or cultural interpretation. You will find our rates for sworn translations very reasonable. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for a free quote or more information.


Certified translators are sworn in a court of law. Their translations are always accompanied by a declaration including a stamp and the translator’s signature to confirm that the translation is an exact rendering of the original document. This way you can be sure that the Portuguese authorities will accept the translated documents. In the large network of regular and sworn translators our official translation agency has built there is always a translator available immediately if you need an urgent translation.

It is up to you to choose between a regular and a sworn translator Portuguese. Our certified translation agency offers advice and can make a case for either one, but in the end the decision is yours. Our regular translators provide accurate and professional translations but when it comes to official documents, for instance for Portuguese authorities, the fact that a sworn translator translated the documents increases the probability that the authorities will accept them. Documents that profit from a certified translation are, amongst others:

Other business papers or job applications may not require a sworn translator but in many cases you only get one chance to make a good first impression with the recruiter or the business owner the documents are meant for. The fact that you made the effort to have them translated and that they are accompanied by a declaration of the sworn translator may be a true added value and open doors for you that otherwise would have remained closed.

I needed a sworn translation of a document in a hurry.

The whole process was extremely efficiently handled, and I was able to get the process underway almost instantly.

Your translation questions answered

What is a sworn translation?

A sworn translation is a translation carried out by a sworn translator. You will always receive the physical copy of the translation by post and the scanned document by e-mail. A sworn translator has taken an oath and is registered with the court as someone who is able to deliver truthful translations for a specific language pair. A sworn translation contains the stamp of the translator and his or her statement that the translation has been translated to the best of his/her ability and as truthfully as possible. You will need a sworn translation if a government agency or other official body requires a translation of an official document, such as your passport, driver’s license or diploma.

You will need a sworn translation for official documents that you have to show or submit to a government agency or other official body. If you are unsure whether or not a sworn translation is required, we advise you to check this with the authorities concerned. For use in the Netherlands, a sworn translation by a sworn translator registered in the Netherlands will be sufficient. For use abroad, you may also need an apostille or even legalisation at Foreign Affairs and the relevant embassy.

Strictly speaking, a sworn translation is not the same as a certified translation. A sworn translator is appointed in his or her personal capacity as a capable translator. By adding his or her stamp and statement to a translation, a translation is sworn. A certified translation means that the translation is certified by a third party as a true representation of the source document. This third party may be a notary, a lawyer, or a translation agency. Some countries, such as Portugal, do not have sworn translations and mainly work with certified translations. In the Netherlands, on the other hand, sworn translations are common. Are you not sure whether you need a sworn or a certified translation? Please feel free to contact us.

A certified translation is a translation that is certified by a third party as a true representation of the source document. This third party may be a notary, a lawyer, or a translation agency. Unlike with a sworn translation, a certified translation is not necessarily carried out by someone who is authorised by a court or government to translate official documents in their personal capacity. Some countries, such as Portugal, do not have sworn translations and mainly work with certified translations. In the Netherlands, on the other hand, sworn translations are common.
