The translation has to be issued by a sworn translator! We accept translations issued by a sworn translator from Austria as well as from other countries.

The translation must be uploaded as one PDF together with the corresponding original document.



Foreign documents generally only give the same evidential value as domestic public documents if they hold the mandatory legalisation form on the original documents. The necessary legalisation depends on teh country teh document was issued in.
