Here are main characteristics of certifierd translation in Poland:
Certified translations (sworn translations) are regulated by the Act on the Profession of Sworn Translators. They are usually necessary usually when we want to submit foreign documents to Polish authorities.
Certified translation is nothing but the description of a document; therefore it must also contain the description of seals, security features, type of paper, letterheads, translator’s notes, if any, endorsements found by a translator to be necessary and information on whether original or copy was presented for translation – all such endorsements and descriptions shall be included into the number of signs counted to determine the basis for due fee.
The output page of text translated as certified translation (the basis for computation of due fee) shall be made of 1125 signs, including spaces, any page started shall be counted as a full page.
Fees must be computed at official rates when a job is ordered by state officials taking account of extra charges for anything that deviates from standard in technical sense (small letters, text handwritten, tables, etc.). When a job is ordered by a client, under market conditions, fee shall be charged at contractual prices. Any additional copy means extra petty charge (additional copy having the status of original translation). Any translation made as urgent (on the same day or on the following day – 24 hours for small size documents and over 8 pages of translated text per day for huge projects) is subjected to extra charge.
Every single translation job is assigned its unique repertory number that shall be entered into the clause on the last page of translation output (“authentication clause”). Official round seal and stamp of a translator must be affixed on translation output together with authentication clause. Round seal is affixed on each page of translated text. The text shall be secured against any additions, endorsements or inclusions, etc. (exactly the same as in a case of notaries).
Assistance of a sworn interpreter/translator is also required for certain legal acts, transactions and company meetings involving foreign parties.
