Documents translated by a non-certified translator

In situations where the translation cannot be provided by a certified translator, it must be accompanied by an AFFIDAVIT swearing to the accuracy of the translation and the language proficiency of the translator.



What is an Affidavit?

An affidavit for a translation is a document that states that the translation is an accurate version of the original text. The translator swears that their translation is an accurate representation of the contents of the original document.

The translator does this in front of a commissioner authorized to administer oaths here in Canada.
