Legal and Official Translations

Official translations are the translations of documents which need to serve as legally valid instruments.

Dalila Segador is Head of Official Translations. She is an Official Translator of Spanish and English (no. TIJ 3674) appointed by the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation. Her official translations are accepted by the authorities in Spain and the UK and have the same international legal value as the translated document.

All official (sworn) translations produced by official translators bear official status, according to section 17.1(b) of Royal Decree 724/2020 (Real Decreto 724/2020).

Spanish official translators receive university education in official and legal translation and are conferred authority by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation to perform their job. They have the knowledge and the research skills to produce official translations into English and Spanish to be accepted by the authorities in the UK and Spain.

Official translations, produced by a duly appointed official translator – traductor jurado, bear official status, and do not need to be legalised (apostilled).

The official translator is only responsible for the official translation process into English and Spanish. The official translator is not responsible for the legalisation process of the original translated document.
