officially recognised translators

Postby me_in_japan on Sat Sep 30, 2017 11:56 am

Hi folks - a non-gaming question here.

My mum and dad have been getting on at me to get UK passports for my kids (what with Brexit looming, and potential Scoxit, too...), and one of the requirements for the application is:

UK passport people wrote:If any document you are providing is in a language other than English or Welsh, you must provide the original document and an official translation. This must be signed and stamped by a translator who is a member of a recognised professional organisation to prove it is genuine.


So, does anybody here know where I can find such a service here in Japan? Obvs it'll cost me, although I have no idea how much. I've tried a few google searches but I'm having trouble separating out the genuine, official ones from dodgy part-time eikaiwa teachers. What defines a "recognised professional organisation" anyway? Any help y'all could pass my way would be much appreciated. Cheers in advance :)

I guess you could try looking for accreditation associations first and that might give you a hint about what to look for?

good idea - I've taken a look, and there seem to be...many. I'll keep digging. I'm kinda (somewhat optimistically, I know) hoping that somebody here has already done what I'm trying to do and can recommend a place. Fingers crossed :)

Or...

Contact the embassy and see if they can recommend someone.

I might do that, but I'm kinda thinking the embassy would be no-touchy, because if they were to recommend someone it'd be showing favouritism to one business over another? Could be a dodgy situation, legally speaking (for them, I mean.) I may give it a try anyway. Thanks for the ideas - good to know someone is out there :D
