Challenges When Translating Legal Certificates By Yourself

Variances In Legal Systems

Since different countries have different legal systems, each certificate will have variations in form and the terms used. This is why it is so important to use a translator that is well versed and has relevant experience.

Differences in terminology

Unless the translator is skilled and experienced in the nuances of each language’s legal documents, ambiguity can be created.

Tone or register

Legal English documents are usually formal and impersonal in tone and use a passive voice. When translating into English, the translator needs to understand that variations in tone could lead to a variation of meaning in the document.


When handling legal documents such as marriage certificates, all parties must maintain strict confidentiality. You should research your translation options and ensure you choose a trusted professional company.
