You need to find a translator who is a member of a professional body of translators. The two most important professional bodies for UK translators are the Chartered Institute of Linguists or the Institute of Translation and Interpreting. In the UK, only members of such professional bodies can give the certification that is required for the translation of an official document.

I would avoid googling German to English translation services as the choice will be overwhelming and you will not necessarily be getting a very good service.

In most instances, translators need to see the original documents. So I would look in the Yellow Pages first, to see if there are local translators who can do the job for you; you'll be able to make an appointment and show them the documents that need translating. My second stop would be the local solicitors, as they are likely to have names and contact details of competent translators.

You could potentially save yourself a bit of money by asking QMU if they’ll accept copies translated and stamped by your school.

They’ll often be info on exactly how they want them translated on their offer holder pages. Ultimately you may need to go to a certified translator but it’s better to check first.
