Certified Translation

When documents are written in a language that is not an official language of Ghana, then a certified translation may also be required. It is important to ensure that the certified translation is valid for use in Ghana. Translations not done in Ghana may require separate legalization alongside the original document.

Isarey provides document attestation services to private, corporate and institutional clients worldwide. Our presence in different jurisdictions and our local experience and expertise dealing directly with authorities and embassies in different countries means we can save you time, frustration and money, ensuring that documents are properly prepared so that they are accepted by Ghanaian  authorities.
