How to get an Apostille?

How fast can you get an Apostille?

Our translation agency offers a service – apostille or legalization of documents. Translations with an apostille are prepared usually within 3-5 working days.

Question: Good afternoon! For example, if I’m going to Sweden and I need to translate my diploma of education and diploma of vocational education. Do I need an apostille?

Answer: The need for an apostille for educational documents depends on the requirements of the institution in which these documents are submitted. In our experience, in most cases, there is no need to approve apostille because Sweden is a part of the Hague Convention, while foreign documents submitted to the Swedish authorities do not need to be legalized with the apostille.

Legalization is required if the documents are intended for use in a country not on the list: 1961. Member States of the Hague Convention of 5 October 1951 on the Abolition of Legalization of Foreign Public Documents.

Computer-Assisted Translation Tools

Do we use Computer-Assisted Translation tools?

Yes, we use computer-assisted translated tools (CAT tools) such as SDL TRADOS that is often used in the translation process. For example, the speed of the translation process rises double when translating with SDL Trados of standardized document contracts.

It also helps to maintain the same translation terminology in one document or across different files or even projects within years. This software supports a variety of document formats like XML, PDF, .docx and others.  CAT tools make the translator’s work a bit easier.

Please note that it is not a translation tool like Google Translate. It is just a translator’s helper to make a translation faster and perfect.

Call us if you need a translation with SDL Trados or order it online.
