Translating certificates or transcripts

All applicants who have qualifications/transcript which are not English may be required to provide notarised translations into English or Welsh.

UK Visas and Immigration requires a fully-certified original translation for each document you provide that is not in English.

  • be made by a professional translator or translation company
  • include details of the translator or translation company credentials
  • include confirmation from the translator that it is an accurate translation of the original document
  • include the date of the translation
  • include the original signature of the translator or an authorised official of the translation company.

If your translation does not meet all the requirements, you must have a new translation made. Your visa application can be refused if the translation does not meet the requirements.
