What is a Sworn Translation?
A legally recognized translation of a document that can only be done by an official Public Translator and Commercial Interpreter (TPIC). The document is only deemed valid in another country when translated by a sworn translator.
Who does it?
An official Public Translator and Commercial Interpreter (TPIC), also known as a Sworn Translator, is qualified to translate the document so that it is legal in other countries. To qualify, TPICs must pass a civil service examination (known as a ‘concurso’ in Brazil) and are then appointed by the Board of Trade in the state they live in, where they will practice. In the case of Rio Grande do Sul, the Board of Trade for the state that qualifies and appoints TPICs is JUCERGS.
Is a sworn translation done in Brazil valid abroad?
Sworn translations by Brazilian sworn translators are valid in other countries, regardless of the state in which the translator is registered. However, we recommend that you check with the foreign authority you will be presenting the document to or that country’s consulate before having the document translated.
