Documents for Certification and Legalization
In the UK there is no recognised official body which grants authorisation to legalise or certify translations. In some countries translators are registered as “Sworn Translators” and are recognized by the authorities in their respective countries. However, we do not have “Sworn Translators” in the UK. Law Exchange Ltd provides expert advice and assistance with the legalization and certification of your official documents by UK solicitors and notary publics. We translate documents from and into any language and documents issued both in the UK and overseas.

Certifications by UK solicitors and notary publics

The translation can be certified by:
  • The translation company, Law Exchange Limited, as we only use qualified translators who are members of approved official bodies 
  • A solicitor (in the event the document is for use within the UK) 
  • A Notary Public (in the event the document is for use abroad)

Legalization and Apostille by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO)

Translated documents which have been certified by a solicitor or a notary public may also require:
  • Legalization or apostille at the FCO. An apostille is an official certificate confirming that a signature, seal or stamp attached to a document, is genuine. The process of obtaining an apostille is called legalization.
  • Legalization at the relevant embassy in the UK.

Guaranteed confidentiality

At Law Exchange Ltd we guarantee confidential and secure handling of all documents at all times. If required, confidentiality agreements can be drawn up on request. We are based in London, serving clients from all over the United Kingdom and the world.
