Sworn translator in Madrid
A sworn translation is a translation performed by a sworn translator authorised by the Minister of Foreign Affairs. The sworn translator acts like a notary public and verifies the veracity of the translated document.
The sworn translator performs a faithful and complete translation of a document that has been handed by the client (either on paper or via e-mail).
Also, the sworn translator must attach a copy of the translated document with the date and the seal on every page.
He or she must perform a correct, faithful and complete translation of the original. He or she must not add or erase any content.
This kind of translation can be used to support the translated information while at the same time the translator takes responsibility of the translation with his or her signature and seal.
The sworn translator certifies that the contents of the original document have been translated fully and faithfully into another language, and he verifies it legally with his or her signature and seal.
There is a wide variety of texts that require a sworn translation:
- Commercial agreements.
- Powers of attorney.
- Academic certificates.
These contents must be translated, signed and certified by a very concrete professional: the sworn translator.
The need of this kind of translations appears by requirement of different institutions (Minister, Court, Academic institutions, etc.). These bodies, Spanish or foreign, require the translation to be sworn.
Not all translators can perform a sworn translation (it is compulsory to be a certified sworn translator) and requirements vary from one country to another depending on which one needs the documents. In Spain and for Spanish documents, the sworn translator must have a titulation by the Spanish Minister of Foreign Affairs. This titulation acknowledges that such person is legally capable of performing translations from a foreign language into Spanish and vice versa.
It must be taken into account that the person who signs a sworn translation must have a solid background that allows him or her to understand all the information of the document. That is why the sworn translator must be an expert on the subject, as well.

What is a sworn translator?
A sworn translator is a person who is recognised by an official body to carry out the translation of any type of document and who has certified validity. It is also valid to clarify that a sworn translator receives different types of denomination, depending on the country in which the work is carried out. In Spain the official denomination is sworn translator-interpreter, although they are usually referred to as sworn translators on a daily basis.
In short, the sworn translator is accredited to give legal validity to the translation of the content of a document that is in another language. The translators are authorised by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to authenticate the translation of the document by means of their signature and stamp.
The MC Traducciones team includes sworn translators who are certified by the Ministry and who will take care of translating your documents in a serious and 100% professional manner.

How much does a Sworn Translation cost?
Sworn translations cost more than normal translations. In addition, the prices of the translators generally have minimum amounts of the value to be translated. For example, the minimum cost is usually one page translated, invariable if it is only one paragraph. On the other hand, when the document is longer, the price refers to the translated word.
