May I Notarize A Document That I Translated?

NNA Hotline Tip Logo

If I translate a document and sign the translator’s declaration can I notarize it?C.K., Florida

No. If you sign a translator’s declaration, you must obtain the services of another Notary to notarize your signature on the translator’s declaration. Florida law prohibits a Notary from notarizing his or her own signature (FS 117.05[1]).

Hotline answers are based on the laws in the state where the question originated and may not reflect the laws of other states. If in doubt, always refer to your own state statutes. – The Editors
