Certified court interpreter & translator for Czech
I am registered on the List of Court Experts and Interpreters of the Czech Ministry of Justice. I am a member of the Chamber of Court Interpreters of the Czech Republic.
Court interpreting (from 2,500 CZK for 4 hours)
As a court interpreter for Czech, English and German, I provide official interpreting services in courts, before notaries (probate proceedings, shareholders' meetings), at immigration offices (residence permits), registry offices (acknowledgement of paternity, marriage license) or other officially documented events (e.g. international wedding ceremony). If you need a Czech driver's license, I can get you in touch with a Czech driving school and interpret during the driver's license exam (for details see the tab Interpreting).
Certified translations (from 450 CZK per page)
As a court translator, I do court-certified translations (= official/sworn translation with a round stamp) of virtually all types of official documents in Czech, German and English (for details see the tab Translations).
The certified translation must be literal and contain all the information given on the translated document, i.e. also the letterhead and all the stamps must be translated. The certified translation must include interpreter's certification clause with his signature and bear his official seal, which is a round stamp with the small national emblem of the Czech Republic and a diameter of 36 mm.
Finally, the certified translation is bound with the translated document by means of a tricolour ribbon and it is sealed so that both documents form an inseparable whole and no page can be replaced or substituted without first spoiling the seal. All certified translations and acts of interpreting are registered under a registration number in the Register of Interpretations and Translations that is administered by the Czech Ministry of Justice.
