Certified Translation of Criminal Record Certificate

Certified Translation of a Criminal Record Certificate

A criminal record or criminal convictions certificate details whether or not you have a criminal record. It is often required as part of a visa/immigration/residency process or if you are applying for a job in health, security, law, childcare or the government.


If you have spent time in Spain and want to complete one of the procedures above in the United Kingdom, then you might have to provide a certified translation of your certificado de antecedentes penales (criminal record certificate). When it comes to Spain, you can request your certificate here: https://sede.mjusticia.gob.es/es/tramites/certificado-antecedentes

Certified Translator

As these documents are part of official procedures, the organisation requesting your certificate will most likely ask for a certified translation of the document by a certified translator who registered with a body such as the ITI or the CIOL.

As per all certified translations, the translation of your criminal record certificate must be dated, signed and stamped by the translator. It must also include the translator’s contact information and their statement of truth. I also attach a cover letter stating that the document is a true and accurate version of the original document. It is also important to check the translation requirements with the organisation to which you are submitting the certified translation.

Turnaround Time

I can usually turnaround the translation of a criminal convictions certificate (certificado de antecedentes penales) in around 24 hours.
