What type of certification?

In the common law system prevailing in the UK, we do not have the 'sworn translator' (e.g. beëdigd vertaler) that you would find on the continent. The process for certifying a translation in the UK can take one of the following routes: 

  • a self-certified translation
  • a Statutory Declaration
  • a notarised  document

Our self-certified translations are usually sufficient, as the certificate shows the translator's name and address, plus the translator's qualifications. Our certified translations are accepted by the following:

  • UK Border Agency
  • employers and  universities
  • General  Medical Council

Please feel free to contact us by sending an email to info@dutchlink.co.uk for more information.


Our standard charge is  £42 including the translation, certification and return by first class or recorded delivery for a one-page document, such as a birth certificate, marriage certificate, etc.

If your document is more than one page, please send a scanned copy to info@dutchlink.co.uk and we can provide you with a quote. 


We usually aim to deliver our certified translations within 2-3 business days from receiving payment from you. If you require a faster service, please contact us to discuss.
