What does it mean when a translation is certified? In the U.S., it means the translator and/or translation company has added a signed statement that the translation is accurate and correct to the best of their knowledge and ability. It may also be notarized to confirm the identity of the person signing the statement. Essentially, the certification creates a legal record which confirms that the translation was produced in good faith and according to translation standards and norms.
