Giving juridical force to a foreign document in order to submit it to the Russian authorities is accomplished into 2 stages:
- Professional translator translates the document.
- Notary certifies the authenticity of the signature of this, known to him personally, translator.
The specific types of documents (e.g., constitutive agreements, regulations, warrant, etc) are certified with the presence of apostille (for documents given out in countries signed the Hague convention), or legalization in the appropriate Consulate (for documents given out in countries which have not signed the Hague convention).
List of countries for which the certification of Russian notary is sufficient.
List of states with which the Russian Federation concluded the agreements on the lawful aid which foresee the abolition of the legalization.
In specific cases some types of documents (e.g., Certificate of birth, of death, of marriage, etc.) do not require notarization, and it is sufficient to certify their translation by the stamp of translation bureau or by authorized organization.
Translation is printed out on the separate sheet (sheets), is attached to original or copy of document, laced, signed and stamped by notary with the indication of precise quantity of sheets.
