Court translation, sometimes called official translation, is a translation prepared by a court interpreter. The court interpreter is an interpreter licensed by the court to prepare court translations.
A court translation has certain formal requirements. The original document is permanently attached to the translation and provided with the clause, signature and the translator seal. The translator clause contains a translator's confirmation that he/she was appointed by the court.
