Request an official translation

In the case of an official translation, we will provide Lector with a certificate of authenticity, stating that the content of the translation matches the content of the source language document. The certificate is always issued in the target language(s) and is handed over to the client in a sealed form, stamped and signed.

When requesting a quote, please indicate your request in the comment field or by e-mail or phone to our contact person.

How can you collect the certificate?

You can download your certificate with the translated documents at the same time, from the comfort of your home, through your personal Client Gateway. We will also send it to you and to any of your designated colleagues by e-mail upon request.You can receive the translation and the certificate in person or by regular mail, although these are more time-consuming processes.


Proofreading is one of the most important processes in translation projects. The translated text is reviewed by our certified translators and proofreaders: the aim is to produce a document in the native language, with the aim of accuracy. In the target language text, we take care to ensure grammatical correctness, spelling and the use of appropriate terms. It is important to note that only properly translated documents can be proofread.

The official is not authentic!

Authentic translations can only be issued by the state OFFI (National Office for Translation and Translation Authentication). The official translation from the Lector Translation Agency is adequate in terms of content and accuracy, but there are government institutions that will only accept a certified translation as a translation that is identical to the content of the document. Before ordering a translation service, it is advisable to ask the person in charge of the institution in question what kind of translation is required.
