A sworn translator holds official authorization granted by government authorities, including the court, and in certain instances, by the ministries of foreign affairs or justice, empowering them to translate and issue certified or sworn documents. To authenticate a translated document, the translator meticulously affixes it to the original, accompanied by a formal declaration asserting their confidence in the accuracy and completeness of the translation. This declaration is further validated by the official seal.
