Linguist Notaries can be very sought for as they can help you navigate through the maize without the expense of a translator. She specialises in Romanian and French documents and she has knowledge of the legal system in Romania and France.

If a document requiring notarisation is in a foreign language it is usually necessary for the document to be translated by an official legal translator who will then have to sign a statutory declaration certifying that it is a true translation. If however the document is in one of the languages that Andreea Bostan speaks she will be satisfied to fix her seal of office and signature on documents in a foreign language if they are fully satisfied that the person signing is conversant with the language of the document.

Regulatory information

What is a notary Public?

A Notary verifies, authenticates and records deeds, documents and facts for cross-border transactions, performing a vital function in international trade and business. There were notaries in ancient Rome, responsible for recording court proceedings and drawing-up documents.

Why a Notary and not a solicitor?

Notaries form a small, highly specialised branch of the legal profession, whose area of specialisation is the preparation and certification of documents so that they may be used effectively abroad.

A notary acting for a Company

Following the implementation of the Money Laundering Regulations 2003, notaries are now obliged to keep sufficient evidence on their files of the identity and the address of all their clients before they undertake any work.
