Depending on the country, sworn translations are also known as certificates or official translations. It is a document which must bear the seal and signature of the sworn translator who certifies the documents, by adding the official certification formula established by present Spanish legislation (Order AEC/2125/2014 of 6th November) making this document official.
The legal translator is a public attestator who translates and certifies the accuracy of their translations by attesting and comparing original and translation. The legal translator must sign, bear their stamp and insert their official certification to make sure the document has a fully validity. Most of the texts translated by the legal translator belong to law field, however the legal translation is not registered to any field, texts can related to medical, academic, commercial fields, among others.
