Official Translations

An official or certified translation of a document is a translation which is a public document considered valid before the Administration and Courts. Translations and interpreting services from a foreign language into Spanish and vice versa will only be considered valid if they have been done by an official Translator-Interpreter authorized by the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Cooperation pursuant to the Sixteenth Additional Disposition of the Act 2/2014 dated 25th March. Official Translators-Interpreters are entitled to certify the faithfulness of their work by signing and sealing the document, including the certification stated by the Ministry for such purpose. The certification, signature and seals included by the official translator give the translated document the same legal validity as the original document.
