Sworn Translation by
High Court Chinese Sworn Translators

A sworn translation of a document is the legal equivalent of the original document for evidentiary purposes in the court of law. A sworn translator has sworn an oath in the high court of South Africa to “translate faithfully and correctly to the best of his knowledge and ability”. To ensure that a translation is recognized as a sworn translation, sworn translators stamp and sign every page of their translation and add a statement certifying that “it is a true translation of the original”. Sworn translators carry a heavy responsibility, because their work can have life-changing consequences for the people involved.

Sworn Translation
vs.
Ordinary Translation

Since a sworn translation is done for legal purposes, the translation should be clearly recognisable as the same document, with all the information as in the original, even if some of it seems unnecessary or repetitious. Sworn translators assume that every word and every nuance has a purpose, and reproduce the content, every signature, every stamp in the way they appear on the original.

Here is a summary of the differences between sworn translator and general translator:
