Certified Translations

If you are planning to submit a translation to a courtroom or government office or agency, you will probably need a certified translation. Different courtrooms and agencies have different certification requirements, so you should check first to see exactly what kind of certification is required (Affidavit, PIO, Notarized, Apostille, through Embassies, etc).

Sworn Translation

Affidavit is an alternative term for an oath through the Court - in our case for sworn translations. 


It is accepted by most local and international organizations since such translations are certified as a sworn translation through the District Court of Nicosia, Cyprus. 

Notary Public

For certain legal and contractual documents, you may need notarized translation.  We, in cooperation with Notary Publics of the Republic of Cyprus as well as other countries legalize translations and documents for any purpose of your choice.

Notary certification is recognized by most countries; however it may need additional certification such as Apostille if the translation will be used abroad.

PIO Translation

Press and Information Office under the Republic of Cyprus offers Certified Translations. PIO provides translations and certification services in some 25 languages.


Documents translated and/or certified by the PIO are recognized throughout the Republic of Cyprus. Fees are 22 EUR per document (250 words) including certification. According to the official website of the Press and Information Office, translations are completed in 3-5 working days,


What is an Apostille? 


An Apostille is a certification provided under the Hague Convention of 1961 for authenticating documents for use in foreign countries. The sole function is to certify the authenticity of the signature of the document.

Put simply, an Apostille is a certificate that is attached to another document so that it will be accepted when used overseas.  It is accepted by 105 member parites.


Certification through Embassies

Depending on the case you may need to legalize and certify your translations or documents through certain foreign Embassies.


If you are going to use a personal or a corporate document in China, Bulgaria, Russia, Lebanon or UAE we recommend you to certify your document through respective Embassies.

Certification through the Ministry of FA

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs issues an Authentication stamp that certifies the signature on a public document (for example, a Cypriot birth certificate) as part of the process for validating documents for use overseas. 


Authentication stamps are usually required to obtain a further certification through a respective Embassy or a Consulate.
