    Cool sworn

    Hi,

    Is the term "sworn translator" correct? eg: The customs want your Id to be translted by a sworn translator.

    It doesn't sound right to me. Maybe official translator or recognised translator.

    Depending on the legal requirements of the country, such people may be known as sworn, recognised, certified or official translators.

    Note that 'identity' is abbreviated to 'ID'.

    So, "sworn translator" is not wrong, is it?

    One of my Spanish friends has recently been officially recognised as a "sworn translator".
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
