Greetings, we have all the notary certificates standardized and ready to deploy our storefront for all the xx notaries...except one! We forgot the affidavit for a the translator to swear the translation is correct before notarizing the document. I went ahead and took a stab at it as my paralegal friends are not around and we deploy tomorrow: Remember my background is in banking....so please do not spare my feelings...facts are facts...I can't write in legal terms! Would the below be appropriate for the Affidavit of a Translator? My name is ***** ***** the penalties of perjury I swear (affirm) I speak both the English and _________________ languages and can accurately translate the meaning and intent from one to the other, and acknowledge and verify the foregoing is a complete translation of _____________________ made by me from __________________ to ____________________. Jurat inserted. Thank you so much!
