Singapore Expats

re: translation

Moving to Singapore? Ask our regular expats in Singapore questions on relocation and their experience here. Ask about banking, employment pass, insurance, visa, work permit, citizenship or immigration issues.

by registered, I assume they mean a qualified translator who works for a translation company.

There are a few companies in Singapore. You can try SDL Multilingual or Lionbridge for starters. They are two of the larger firms, and there are a multitude of smaller ones.

That would be enough if his name is registered in the list of official sworn translators. I don't know which authority here is taking care of this, but a translator working in a translation company doesn't make him an official sworn translator. In istanbul where I worked as an official sworn translator for 1 year, I had a special stamp to go with translations required by official use. But there were some other translators in the same company who didn't have this stamp.

Apply with that document and if it is not accepted, then you know what to do. You go to one of the companies Splatted has written and ask for translation from an official sworn translator which they should have.
With my kind regards
