Certified and legalized translations

Excelcis delivers certified translations of legal documents for official submission in Switzerland and abroad, including notarized translations with international apostille certification. 


Translation process

Our certified translations are valid at official level in Switzerland and in most European countries.

Upon request, we can also provide notarized translations with international apostille certification, for submission to any country member of the Hague Conference on Private International Law (HCCH). This Conference has been joined to date by 91 members.

To legalize a translation for submission in a country not member of the HCCH, a supplementary legalization process may be needed, typically at State Chancellery level (in Switzerland) and, where needed, through the diplomatic representation of the country where the legalized translation will be submitted.

We offer you an end-to-end translation and legalization service, regardless of the country for which the legalized translation is intended, covering:

We translate and certify your document. If no additional legalization is requested, we deliver the certified translation to you by post and electronically.

Should additional legalization by a third party be required, step 3 below applies.



Supplementary legalization
