Why it is compulsory to have a certified interpreter present when signing notarial acts in France

If one of the parties does not understand or has a poor understanding of French, the presence of a sworn interpreter is strictly mandatory. If you come to sign the deed without a certified translator, the notary may refuse to sign the deed!
So, in the process of notarizing documents in France, when dealing with foreign individuals, the presence of a certified interpreter becomes paramount.

Нis presence ensures that the foreign party correctly understands all the nuances of the document.

The interpreter, along with the notary and the signing parties, signs that he/she carried out the translation during the signing of the deed.

Note that you cannot come to the signing of the notarial document with an ordinary, non-sworn translator or just a fluently speaking french person !  

Notaries strictly insist on the presence of a sworn interpreter certified by the French Court of Appeal.

Upholding legal integrity

As foreign individuals navigate the process of signing notary documents in France, the certified interpreter stands as a guardian of accurate interpretation, contributing this way to the protection of the rights of all parties involved.

The role of a certified interpreter extends beyond language facilitation; it contributes to upholding the legal integrity of the entire process.

By ensuring that all parties fully understand the implications of the documents they are signing, the interpreter safeguards the legal rights and responsibilities of each participant, fostering a fair and just legal environment.
