    Cool sworn

    Hi,

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

    Re: sworn

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

    Re: sworn

    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'.

    Re: sworn

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

    Re: sworn

    One of my Spanish friends has recently been officially recognised as a "sworn translator".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
