Translation and Authentication in Ireland of all documents required for use in the UK following Brexit

Following Brexit, many documents which previously did not have to be translated or certified for use in the UK now have to go through a rigorous process of translation, authentication, and legalisation in order to be valid for use in the UK. The Dublin, Belfast, and London offices of Certified Translation Services Ltd have inhouse experts who can guide you through the entire process depending on your specific needs, ensuring that your documents go through the correct legalisations and authentications. Certified Translation Services Ltd also provide inhouse translations for UK consular legalisation, and we are delighted to provide you with a guarantee that the documents processed by us will be accepted for use in the UK.

The reverse also applies, with documents originating in the UK now requiring certification, authentication, and consular legalisation before they can be presented to entities in the European Union. Again, the team at Certified Translation Services Ltd can take care of your requirements from start to finish, providing you with a guarantee that your documents which originate in the UK will be accepted for use in the relevant European Union country.

Which documents need to be legalised for use in the UK following Brexit?

The list of documents, for both commercial and personal use, originating from European Union countries which require certified translation, authentication, and consular legalisation for use in the UK is non-exhaustive, however includes for example:

  • Drivers’ licences
  • Passports
  • Birth, death, marriage, and divorce certificates
  • Academic transcripts, degrees, and diplomas
  • Power of attorney
  • Property deeds
  • Bank statements
  • Certificates of incorporation
  • Board Resolutions
  • Legal documents
  • Employment contracts

For further details of your specific document requirements please contact Certified Translation Services Ltd so that we can explain what is required in each case. The Dublin, Belfast and London offices will carry out all required steps for you, returning your documents to you when they are ready to be used in the UK. Alternatively, and as mentioned above, the identical service is provided for documents which originate in the UK and are destined for use in European Union member countries. This also includes certified translations of documents from English to any European Union country languages.

What steps will be required in order to legalise the documents

The exact requirements vary depending on the specific document, however the first step will be establishing whether your document is an original or photocopy. If it is a photocopy, Certified Translation Services Ltd will arrange for a Public Notary to authenticate the photocopy. The document may then be sent to the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade for Apostille certification. The Apostille certification confirms the authenticity of the signatures, stamps, and seals on the document. Once all necessary authentications have taken place, Certified Translation Services Ltd will send your document to the British Embassy in Dublin for Consular Legalisation. When this step has been completed your documents will be promptly returned to you, ready for use. Again, the same service and processes are in place for documents originating from the UK which need consular legalisation for use in European Union member countries.
