English to Spanish Document Translation

Reasons for document translation?

A document that needs to be translated into the national language before it can be presented for use in another country which uses a language other than English for legal or other purposes can be done via our services. Document translation is mandatory if the country in which you intend to work, buy property, open a bank account or conduct legal proceedings requires you to submit your documents in their official language.

English to Spanish translation is required if you need to submit documents in countries such as Spain, Brazil, Argentina or Cuba, where the official language is Spanish.

The English to Spanish translation has to be completed in such a manner that the meaning of the translated document exactly matches the source document. This is important because even a minor error can have catastrophic consequences due to a change in the meaning and the intent of the document.

Translation mistakes can be avoided by using an experienced Spanish translation company, with a network of translators who have excellent knowledge of the language, its grammar and its usage, and are ready to certify their translation. Spanish translation agencies also need to ensure that they use the right dialect, since Spanish dialects vary from Europe to Latin America.

Since all UK-originated documents that need to be submitted in Cuba, for instance, need to be translated into Spanish, choosing an agency that provides certified Spanish translation will ensure that your documents retain their integrity and are in the desired format.

The certified Spanish translators at Legalisations.org.uk can ensure accurate translation of your documents. Our translators are well aware of the cultural differences between the two languages of English and Spanish, and the difference in the grammatical density of the two languages. They are further aware of the difference in cultural context between the various Spanish speaking countries. They take care to ensure that language specific grammatical features are considered while translating documents.

All English-Spanish translations for presentation in non-member countries of the Hague Apostille Convention, such as Cuba, the documents will need to be apostilled by the UK FCO for their acceptance within that country. The apostille stamp authenticates the translated versions for use in another country.

As Cuba is not a member of The Hague Apostille Convention, apostille certification is not adequate for the acceptance of UK-originated documents, such as Birth Certificates, Marriage Certificates, University Degrees, Medical Certificates, and Powers of Attorney. An additional step of consular legalisation is required, wherein the translated and apostilled documents are submitted to the Cuba Embassy in London for legalisation.

However, if the country in which you need to present your documents is part of The Hague Apostille convention, such as Argentina, the translated documents require only an apostille certificate and do not have to be submitted for consular legalisation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Legalisations.org.uk.is a certified translation services provider, whose translations are accepted by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office or FCO as authentic. All our translators are fully accredited and have the experience to translate all kinds of documents, including legal documents.

Certified translation ensures that the content and intent of a document does not change with the change of language from English to Spanish or with Spanish to English translations. The documents translated by Spanish translation agencies need to match the content and meaning of the original document for their acceptance in another country. Special care is required when a translator translates legal documents, since even minor errors can change the meaning of a document.

UK government bodies, including the FCO, require the translators to attest the accuracy of the translated document. Our certified translators provide a statement certifying the accuracy of the translated document, sign it and provide their contact details and credentials

You can contact our translation company online for all your translation needs for personal and business documents, before their submission for apostille certification. Once the FCO issues the apostille certificate to the certified Spanish translation, we can submit them to the concerned country’s embassy in London for consular legalisation.

Some countries require both the English and the translated Spanish versions of the certified documents to be apostilled and legalised, while others might require apostille certification of only the translated versions. We request you to check the requirements of the country in which you wish to present your documents to ensure there are no errors or unnecessary delays.

Correct translation requires time and experience to ensure that all your documents are translated in the correct manner. We request you to email us the documents to be translated beforehand, as this will enable us to review the documents whether in English or Spanish, check the word count and provide you a quote for the cost of English to Spanish or Spanish to English translation, required by you.
