A sworn translation is a translation carried out by a sworn translator who is authorized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The Sworn Translator acts as a Notary, and attests publicly to the veracity and completeness of the translated document.
The need for this type of translation arises as it is demanded by certain authorities (Ministries, Courts, Academic Institutions). These organizations, whether Spanish or foreign, require that the translation presented be sworn.
On the other hand, a Sworn Translation can be used to guarantee the translated information because the translator accepts the responsibility of the translation with his/her signature and officially recognized seal.
