You will need to hire a sworn translator if you must present documents in administrative or legal proceedings, for example, or if you must give evidence before the Public Administration.
The Administration itself asks the person to have the document translated by a sworn translator for the so-called “legal certainty”. The state must ensure that the translation of a foreign document doesn’t have fraud or errors.
If, for example, you are facing legal proceedings, Law 1/2000 on Civil Procedure states that any foreign document must have the translation into Spanish enclosed. Thus, anyone bearing the ability to do so can translate the record, but the judge or the opposing party can question the quality of the translation.
For this reason, it is advisable to request a translation having the sworn translator’s stamp and signature so that it has official value in court and cannot cause any problems during the trial. The lawyer in charge of the case is aware that they must supply all the necessary documentation in a language that the court understands.
The problem with these documents is that they are considered experts – requiring specific specialised knowledge – so the judge will usually ask for an official sworn translation. Thus, you will always need a certified translation.
