Certified translation is mostly for official use where certification is required to ascertain that the translation is accurate and precise. This type of translation is usually required for application to the Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC), Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), Department of Home Affairs (DHA), Courts, Universities and GEMSAS (Graduate Entry Medical School Admissions System), courts, state and federal government.
National Accreditation Authority of Translators and Interpreters or NAATI, is the national standards and professional body which regulates translation and interpreting services in Australia. It is the official and only organisation in Australia to certify translators and interpreters as professional language practitioners in Australia. All foreign language documents for official use need to be translated by a NAATI certified translator (previously known as NAATI accredited translator) for languages available under the NAATI certification in order to be accepted. However, please note that NAATI is not available in all languages.
The translation is usually word for word translation of all visible text to satisfy the NAATI requirement. Translators cannot make any alterations or interpret the meaning behind the text. This is vital to ensure the translation is representative and an exact translation of the original source document.
The translation will usually attest a certification to the fact that the translation was performed by a NAATI Certified translator in the language pair and satisfy the strict requirement of NAATI. The document translation will include the date, signature and liquid stamp issued by NAATI. We only use 100% NAATI certified translators. We guarantee acceptance of all documents provided by our service.
We provide all document translations by NAATI certified translators on our company letterhead and provide original copies when required with wet ink stamp and signatures.
