Certified Korean translation is a translation done by a certified public translator who is authorized by the Korean government to perform translation work and submit them to the various government ministries and public offices.

KOISRA UP provides certified Korean translation services for documents in Korean as well as foreign languages. The translation work and the attestation of the translation are done by licensed and certified Korean translators, according to the Licensed Administrative Agent Act.

A certified translation (sworn translation) indicates that the translation was done accurately, faithfully, and fully represents the original document. According to the law in South Korea, only Certified Korean translators are authorized to provide certified translations. Each certified Korean translation is provided with the translator’s name, license number, office seal, direct contact number and an affidavit.

The following documents may require a Korean certified translation:

  • Personal Documents such as: Marriage Relation Certificate, Driver License, Family Relation Certificate, Birth Certificate
  • Travel Documents such as: Passport, visa applications, Immigration related documents
  • Business Documents such as: Articles of Incorporation, Business Registration Certificate, Certificate of Incorporation, Certificate of Employment, Board Minutes
  • Legal Documents such as: Agreements, Contracts, Legal memos, Power of Attorney, Court Decisions, Summary orders
  • Financial Documents such as: Banking notes, Transactional documents, Certificate of Deposit, Utility bills, Financial Statements and Audit Reports
  • Medical Documents such as: Certificate of Cremation, Medical reports, Certificate of death, Drug Prospectuses

The Korean certified translation can be provided for local and foreign documents in different languages such as: English, Japanese, Chinese, German, Russian, Spanish and French.

In addition to certified Korean translation, our Korean certified public translators and licensed administrative agents can also provide an Attestation of Facts. In such cases for example, the certified translator or agent can witness a signature of documents by third parties.

In a case where a certified public translator isn't available for the language of your document, or in another case where such certified translation doesn't meet your requirements, you may consider Notarized Korean Translation in South Korea. Notarized translation involves having a certified translator provide a translated document that is then verified by a notary public in South Korea. The notary's seal and signature confirm the translation's precision and legitimacy.
