NAATI-Certified Power of Attorney Translation

A Power of Attorney (POA) document is a legal document that allows one person to act on behalf of another person (called a donor or grantor) or organisation. This document gives the attorney the authority to sign documents and access bank accounts on behalf of the person giving them the right and power. In order for your POA document to carry weight in Australia, it needs to be translated into English first. Furthermore, it should be translated by a NAATI-certified translator so that the document can be used for official purposes like applications for government services, visas, and even evidence in court.

Specialist and Expert Translators

Some documents require a particular understanding that not everyone has. This is especially true for Power of Attorney documents, which require a thorough understanding of the document’s terminology. It can be very difficult to find a specialist who can translate these documents, especially when you need the document urgently. Furthermore, your POA document needs to comply with Australia’s legal system. This is why every POA document we translate is executed by a translator who is both NAATI-certified and is an expert in the particular field that they are translating. Rest assured that whatever type of document you need, Sylaba will pair you up with the perfect specialist to help you.


What is a Power of Attorney Document for?

A Power of Attorney document should be written in the language of the country you are using it in. If it is written in a different language, it needs to be translated into that country’s official language first. If you are planning on moving abroad or if you have a business in another country, it is important to have a Power of Attorney document. Having this document can be useful if there are any legal, medical, or financial issues that occur. For example, when someone cannot manage their own affairs due to illness or incapacity, a Power of Attorney document allows someone they trust to manage their affairs. A POA document is written in the form of a letter and validates that one person has full legal authority over another’s personal, business, or financial matters.

There are two major types of Powers of Attorney. A General Power of Attorney document gives another person full authority to act on behalf of another individual. In this case, the attorney can do anything that the person who gives them authority can do. This includes signing and selling property, filing tax returns, etc. It should be noted that in most of Australia, a General Power of Attorney document does not allow someone to make medical or welfare decisions on the donor’s behalf. A Medical Power of Attorney document is needed in this case. Meanwhile, a Specific Power of Attorney document allows another person power to manage a single matter only. For example, the attorney may have the authority to buy or sell a house but does not have authority to manage other legal and financial decisions on behalf of the donor or grantor.

I worked with Sylaba Translations to translate my website from English into Chinese. I have been very pleased with both the process and end result. Sylaba has been prompt, delivered on time and with accuracy, as well as being cost-effective. I would have no hesitation recommending their services.
Trish Varker-Miles, Director of The Trish Nicol Agency
We engaged Sylaba Translations to provide translations into four languages for one of our online platforms. The team was responsive and guided us through the process. The project was completed on time and on budget, and we were very satisfied with the quality of the translations and the review process.
Sylvain Mansotte, Co-Founder & CEO of Whispli
Working with Sonia has been a great experience. Sonia brings clarity, professionalism, and great project management, making the translation process simple, quality driven and time efficient. I was equally impressed with the community checking process and the time frame in which it was completed. I am extremely pleased to see a translation company so dedicated to consistency, quality and accurate function of their translations, which will increase service equity for CALD communities. Thank you Sonia for bringing such high quality of service and skill to this important work.
Carolina Valencia Coleman, Coordinator Diversity Projects, cohealth
Sonia and her team are very responsive and professional. They did a great job at translating my project flyer. Different from other translation services, Sonia called and asked what the flyer is for and who might be the readers so that she can find the most suitable NAATI translators to do the job. The final products were really good! I cannot recommend them more!
Yue Gao, Multicultural Centre for Women's Health
Sylaba was very professional and delivered what we needed in a quick timeframe to a high standard. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again in the future.
Sarah Renouf, Health Issues Centre
I have worked closely with Sonia on translation projects for the past few years and have found a trusted ally in her to help me convey technical information in a variety of languages. Frankly translations can be like crap shoots, you must implicitly trust the project manager you are working with, who must then trust the work of their translators. With Sonia I find she takes the time to understand my project and its complexity- whether it’s sorting out Arabic script that is breaking our outdated website, managing complex manual translations in Simplified Chinese or helping me sift through hours of video footage in Portuguese to simply edit a short piece in English. Sonia always takes the time to understand my task and importantly the scope of my work generally and always understands the brief perfectly. What’s more, she is able to explain to me the work involved in translation process in a way that sets me at ease – reawakens me to the fact that good translations require multiple checks and balances, despite the fact that your friend’s friend could do it more cheaply – and she always is able to meet my budget, even if it means we need to be a bit more creative in our approach to getting the job done. I highly recommend Sonia for your next translation project. On top of all these wonderful qualities I’ve already mentioned, she’s also very lovely!
Ali Hickerson, Marketing and Communications Manager of Bloomberg Philanthropies Data for Health Initiative, University of Melbourne
