  • What is “Attestation of Translation”?
    • Unlike the notarized translation by an attorney that merely confirms that a translator has translated the document, the Attestation of Translation is a document recognized under the Licensed Administrative Agent Act, and is a certificate that proves that a certified public translator has signed and declared that they have translated it and the translation is the same as the original text.
    • It can be submitted to administrative agencies, schools and public institutions, and you can save money, time and efforts from attorney notarization.
    • At WiTHMUN INTERNATIONAL, the Attestations of Translation are issued by certified public translators who has a license authorized by the Minister of Government Administration and Home Affairs.
  • Advantages

When the Attestation of Translation issued by a certified public translator is submitted to the administrative agency, it is admitted that you legally fulfills your responsibility for translation, and the effectiveness of the translation can be recognized.

The Attestation of Translation can only be issued by a certified public translator pursuant to the Licensed Administrative Agent Act, so the translation with the Attestation attached has the reliability of the accuracy of the translation.

You can save money, time and efforts from attorney notarization.
