What exactly I do as a Polish certified translator and interpreter?

I do legal and court translation and interpreting from English into Polish and vice versa. My professional commitment as a Polish certified translator and interpreter is to ensure a constitutional right of foreign parties to be heard in all kinds of proceedings before the Polish administration of justice and law enforcement agencies. I am a law and English graduate with work experience in legal and language industry. Thanks to that I tend to have an in-depth insight into the nuances of the language of the law.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a certified translator in Poland and when do I need one?

Certified translator (also known as sworn translator) in Poland is a profession of public trust entitled to do certified translations. Each certified translator is entered into the list kept by the Polish Minister of Justice available online under this link. Certified translators are legally obliged to maintain impartiality and confidentiality as to the facts they learn in connection to their translations.

Usually you will need a certified translator to have your documents translated in relation to your work or education in Poland. The services of sworn translators are also required when you go to a court hearing or you want to buy a property in Poland.

How to find a certified translator fast?

The easiest way to find a certified translator in Poland is to visit the official Website of Certified Translators at the Ministry of Justice here. The bad news is, however, the fact that for now it is only available in Polish. As awkward as it may sound though, you can Google translate it in your browser and search it then 馃槈

How much does a certified translator charge?

Official prices of certified translations in Poland are specified in the Regulation of the Minister of Justice on the Remuneration of Certified Translators (Polish text here). The current net rate for a standard page of a sworn translation is:

  • from English into Polish PLN 34.50 (for specialised texts PLN 43.12)
  • from Polish into English PLN 45.11 (for specialised texts PLN 56.39)

Market prices of certified translations in Poland are not subject to any regulation, however the above rates often apply also for private clients.

What is a Polish certified translation?

Certified translation, informally also聽sworn translation, is a document of the same legal force as the document, based on which it was done. The certified translation in Poland has to contain:

  • information on the direction of translation (e.g. from English or Polish)
  • certifying clause
  • repertory number
  • date and place of drafting
  • an imprint of the translator‘s seal and her signature

Is there a difference between sworn, certified, notarised, and attested translation in Poland?

I my daily work as a certified translator I come across clients asking for sworn, certified, official, notarised, and attested translations. In fact, the recommended equivalent of the Polish t艂umaczenie po艣wiadczone is聽certified translation. All other versions, as frequently as they may appear, are less preferred or incorrect from the point of view of the Polish Ministry of Justice Sworn Translator Examination Committee.

  • Serdecznie polecam Pana Tomasza Ratajczyka. Korzystali艣my z jego us艂ug przy okazji podpisywania aktu notarialnego (jedn膮 ze stron by艂 cudzoziemiec niepos艂uguj膮cy si臋 j臋zykiem polskim, wi臋c tre艣膰 aktu musia艂a by膰 przet艂umaczona i odczytana po angielsku w obecno艣ci notariusza). Pan Tomasz nie tylko wspaniale w艂ada angielskim s艂ownictwem prawniczym, ale potrafi przet艂umaczy膰 skomplikowane kwestie prawne w taki spos贸b, 偶eby by艂y w pe艂ni zrozumia艂e i jasne r贸wnie偶 dla osoby niezajmuj膮cej si臋 prawem zawodowo, co jest prawdziw膮 sztuk膮. Warto przy tym zaznaczy膰, 偶e Pan Tomasz zgodzi艂 si臋 nam pom贸c pomimo du偶ej presji czasowej, co nie przeszkodzi艂o zaprezentowaniu t艂umaczenia na najwy偶szym poziomie. Jestem pod ogromnym wra偶eniem profesjonalizmu i kultury osobistej Pana Tomasza, polecam z czystym sercem. Pozdrawiam.

Je偶eli w przysz艂o艣ci pojawi si臋 u mnie potrzeba skorzystania na pewno powr贸c臋, a osobom, kt贸re ju偶 teraz potrzebuj膮 t艂umacze艅 serdecznie polecam! 猸愶笍猸愶笍猸愶笍猸愶笍猸愶笍 dla Pana Tomasza 馃檪
