Hello,

I am in processing of translating several documents in Chinese to English.

I have looked on
https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/corporate/publications-manuals/operational-bulletins-manuals/refugee-protection/removal-risk-assessment/translation.html

My question is can I get "a translation done in China by a non certified (but proficient) translator + affidavit from a notarial officer in China swearing the translation is accurate", or if "we must use a certified translator"?

Any clarification is greatly appreaciated!

Thanks!

In the link, it reads:

Documents that are not in English or French must be translated by a certified translator.

A certified translator is a member in good standing whose certification can be confirmed by a seal or stamp that shows the translator’s membership number of a professional translation association in Canada or abroad. All stamps and seals that are not in English or French must also be translated.

Note: A translator who has not yet received certification or accreditation, but is in the process of receiving it, is not considered a certified translator for IRCC’s purposes.
