Translation Services for International Document Authentication & Legalization
In the process of authentication and legalization of foreign language documents for use outside Canada, a certified Canadian translation of the document is often required by Global Affairs Canada. ALSC offers this crucial service with a pool of Canadian translators who are certified to provide translations for authentication purposes.
Global Affairs Canada Authentication Requirements for Foreign Language Documents
After obtaining a notarized translation, the next step is to present the original foreign language document and its translation to Global Affairs Canada in Ottawa. Upon reviewing and confirming the document’s compliance with their requirements, the original notarized foreign language document will be authenticated by a Global Affairs Canada Authentication Officer. The translation will be returned to you, while the authenticated foreign language document will be stamped and signed by the authentication officer. If the document is written in a dual language, it must either be certified by a Canadian translator or notarized by a Canadian bilingual notary.
The final step in the process is legalization, or obtaining an Apostille, from the embassy or consulate of the country in which the document will be used. This step can be confusing, as the fees and requirements can vary depending on the type of document. With 30 years of expertise in authentication and legalization in Canada, ALSC is well-equipped to guide clients through this process.
