Sworn/Certified Translation

Documents written in a language other than Brazilian Portuguese are only accepted by universities, banks, courts, notary offices, registers of commerce, health surveillance agencies, and other public or private institutions in Brazil, if accompanied by the corresponding Apostille and translation made and signed by a sworn/certified translator (tradutor juramentado), whose signature must be notarized, unless the translation is digitally signed. To establish a link between the original document and the translation, the original must bear the translator's stamp and translation number.
