What are certified translations?
Certified translations are high quality translations that carry a written confirmation assuring the truthfulness and accuracy of the translation. Along with the confirmation there are other details which are also mentioned on the translated document. These include the date of the translation, the name and contact details of the translator or a representative of the translation company.
When are certified translations required?
For most general purposes regular translations are sufficient, it is only when the translated document is required for official or government use that you would need to obtain a certified translation.
A certified translation will satisfy UK organizations such as the Home Office, consulates, insurance companies, academic and educational institutions, UK Naric, UK employers, banks and the Passport Agency. Legalisation requirements do however vary from institution to institution and from country to country, so if you are in any doubt as to what type of certification is necessary for your document you should contact the relevant institution directly.
Regulations regarding submitting Certified translations to a court in the UK
If submitting your translated document to a UK court it was previously necessary to have it certified before a solicitor. The rules have changed, and the translator can simply sign a standard statutory declaration which we use here at Certified Translation Services.
Need Certified translations for use outside of the UK? Here are somethings you should know
If the translation is to be used outside the UK it may also require certification by a Notary Public and legalisation by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) as well as translation. Please contact your local consular service for more information to ensure you request the correct level of certification.
For translations that will be sent abroad, it is sometimes necessary to have the declaration signed in the presence of a Notary Public, depending on the purpose of the translation and the country where it will be used.
In some countries, such as Brazil, translators undergo a selective examination process or are appointed by a court or Government authority to be recognized as “sworn translators”. In such cases, a translation by a sworn translator is an official document in its own right and no further certification or legalisation is usually required for official use in that country.

Some interesting facts about the Welsh language
John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, an English writer, poet, philologist and university professor considered Welsh as the senior language of the men of Britain. This is true because of all the languages now spoken in Britain, Welsh has by far the oldest roots. Welsh evolved from the Celtic branch of Indo-European languages. The Indo-European was spoken at least 6000 years ago by semi-nomadic people, who most probably lived in the steppe regions of Southern Russia or maybe Anatolia. Brittonic and Goidelic are two branches of Celtic languages. From Brittonic evolved Cumbric in southern Scotland and north-west England, Welsh in Wales, Cornish in south-west Britain and Breton in Brittany.
According to the Census of 2011, 562,000 people in Wales could speak Welsh, a decrease from 582,400 according to the 2001 census. It is estimated that on average 5,000 Welsh speakers from Wales anually move to England, which is home to at least 200,000 people who have some grasp of the language. Experts believe that Welsh is in top 15% of prospective languages, largely owing to the fact that it is the closest neighbour of English.
Welsh when compared with many langauges is not regarded as difficult to master. Unlike English it is largely phonetic and the words are pronounced just as they are written. This reduces lot of confusion which in English, is a very common feature. In English as in many other languages there are letters in words which are written but not pronounced. However every letter written in Welsh is pronounced. The Welsh alphabet consists of 20 simple letters and 8 digraphs.
The 28 Welsh alphabets are a, b, c, ch, d, dd, e, f, ff, g, ng, h, i, l, ll, m, n, o, p, ph, r, rh, s, t, th, u, w and y. The English alphabets j, k, q, v, x and z are not part of the Welsh alphabets. Welsh vocabulary is largely of Celtic origin but it still has words belonging to other langauges, specifically Latin, French and English. However from vocabulary perspective Welsh has good ability to coin new words from existing resources. Welsh uses the system of initial consonant mutations. For example soft mutations are used when the feminine noun is preceded by the definite or when an adjective follows a feminine noun. Nasal and aspirate mutations occur most frequently after fy (my) and ei (her) respectively. Gender of nouns in Welsh are either masculine or feminine. There is no it and there are no indefinite articles. The plurals can be formed in different ways.
The Welsh numeral system is rather complicated. For example the basic counting unit is twenty or ugain. Thus forty is deugain (two twenties) and sixty is trigain (three twenties). Hundred is cant, fourteen is pedwar ar ddeg (four on ten), sixteen is un ar bymtheg (one on fifteen) and eighteen is deunaw (two nines). Prepositions in Welsh are conjugated. The general order of sentences in Welsh is verb, subject, object and indirect object. Most often the adjective is placed after the noun.
