Notarized translations

The notarization of translations is a crucial step in the legalization process of official document translations, ensuring their validity and acceptance for official purposes

Lexikon offers a crucial service – the notarization of translations.

This type of translation is certified by the signature of a qualified translator and a notary, ensuring its reliability and legality. The notary verifies the authenticity of the document and confirms the translator’s signature, who is legally accountable for any knowingly incorrect translations. Furthermore, our notaries can also legalize public documents issued in Latvia for use in countries that are party to the 1961 Hague Convention by providing an apostille. The apostille is a simplified form of document legalization recognized by Hague Convention member countries. Public documents such as diplomas, birth certificates, criminal records, powers of attorney, and more can be certified with an apostille.

It is worth mentioning that notarization can be done both in paper form and electronically. Our modern technologies allow notaries to remotely certify documents and translations using the electronic signature system, providing a convenient and efficient option for our clients. We guarantee professional and dependable document legalization services. Every translator who certifies a translation with their signature is held accountable under administrative and criminal law for any intentionally mistranslated documents. Whether you require document legalization or not, we are here to provide a trustworthy and professional solution tailored to your needs.

What is document legalization?

Document legalization is the process of authenticating signatures of document signatories and seals of issuing authorities. This crucial step ensures that public documents executed in one country gain validity and recognition in another country. It is performed by foreign affairs services and consular officials at diplomatic missions. An apostille is a simplified form of document legalization recognized by countries that have signed the Hague Convention of 1961.

Do you provide document legalization or apostille services?
