Is it sufficient to scan in a document and send this by email?
Yes, it is generally enough to scan in the document and send this to us by email. We shall attach a copy of the original document to the certified translation as standard. It makes no difference for the translation whether you submit a copy or the original.
However, the certification endorsement will indicate whether a copy or the original was translated. The authority for which you require the document translation will provide you with precise information concerning what is required for the certification endorsement.
It is not up to the translator to decide whether it is necessary to submit the original document for a certified translation or whether it is sufficient to simply translate a copy. Please find out in advance yourself what exactly has to be included in the certification endorsement of your official translation. We shall, of course, be pleased to help if you have any questions.
