about sworn translation services

Do you need a certified translation of your document to support an immigration, visa, passport or professional application?

With Police Clear, you’ll have a professional certified sworn translator at your service, with fast turnaround, affordable prices and excellent customer service.

All our trusted translators are SATI accredited and sworn in in the High Court in South Africa.

What are sworn translations?

A sworn translation is a translation performed by a sworn translator, that is to say, a person who is “certified” by the High Court of South Africa and is listed in the register of certified translators and interpreters.

A sworn translation of a document is the legal equivalent of the original document which is officially recognised and accepted for evidentiary purposes in a court of law or formal procedures, which fulfills the requirements in the country in question.

Sworn translators/interpreters can certify, through their signature and corresponding stamp, that their actions are faithful and accurate, using the formula designed to that end by the ministerial department.

This is the coffee-drinking stage and interrogation time. We will discuss your requirements and come up with an action plan. It’s a two-way conversation about anything and everything that will happen, what you value the most and what we can’t work without.


For the smallest projects, we follow a minimum of seven non-negotiable steps. From preparation of source files, to briefing of translators, not forgetting formatting and desktop publishing, if required.
