For the recognition of the translation of a birth certificate or contract by the appropriate institution/authority/embassy/court, a certification of the translation is needed. Only translators that are authorized or sworn in by a court, are entitled to certify their translations.
I am authorized by the Landgericht Frankfurt/Main and am happy to offer you this service.
The certification will be placed at the end of the document. It is a statement attesting that the translation is accurate and complete to the best of the translator's knowledge. It is signed and sealed by the translator. see examples
