Information About Translations

This page deals with some frequently asked questions about translations.

UK NARIC provides information about the comparability of qualifications and skills from overseas to the UK's national qualifications frameworks.

However, we do not provide written translations of your documents.

When applying for our services, we require your original language documents, and if necessary, a certified English translation of your qualification or you may want to use our Translation Waiver Service.

What is a certified translation?

A certified translation is a translation accompanied by a signed statement to confirm that the translation is accurate and complete to the best of the translator's knowledge and ability.

They would need to sign or stamp the translation and add a declaration to state that they have completed a true and accurate translation of the original document.

Do I need a certified translation?

If the original language of your documents is not English, then yes, you are required to present a certified English translation alongside your original language documents, or use our Translation waiver Service, if applicable.

Should you require a translation of your qualification, you may wish to visit Dialexy at https://www.dialexy.com/

Dialexy can provide you with an instant quote when you upload your documents to their platform. You can order your translations, pay for the service and track the progress on their website at any time. You can also get in touch with them if you have any questions about the certified translation process.

What is the ‘Translation Waiver Service’?

For certain languages UK NARIC offer a ‘Translation Waiver Service’. This means that we can work with your qualifications in their original language and provide you with a Statement of Comparability without needing a separate certified translation of your documents.

Please note that this does NOT provide you with a translation of your documents, which may be required by employers or institutions when applying.
