The Chamber's translation service is officially recognised by all the Arab embassies in London and by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO). However, we strongly advise clients that the Foreign & Commonwealth Office should authenticate all official documentation translated from Arabic to English if it is to be used in the UK. Translation of official documents from English to Arabic, to be used in the Arab world, must be authenticated by both the FCO and the Arab embassy of the country where the document is to be used.
