Official translations
Spanish legislation requires that all documents issued abroad are accompanied by an official translation to Spanish in order to take legal effect in Spain.
The official translation can be done by:
1. A sworn translator duly authorized and registered in Spain
2. Any diplomatic representation or consulate of the Spanish state abroad  (e.g. Spanish Embassy in Bucharest)
The Spanish Embassy in Bucharest does not offer a translation service. However, the Embassy will validate the corrections of translations done by other parties by means of a stamp on the document. To that effect, it is recommended that the translation is of good quality (preferably done by a sworn translator), if not, the translation will be returned without being validated.
To validate a translation in this Embassy, all the original documents and the corresponding translations must be presented when making the request. Office opening hours are from 8.30am to 2.00pm from Monday to Thursday and 8.30am to 1.00pm on Friday.
The corresponding fee for the verification of a translation is 138 RON per page (the fee may vary according to the relevant euro/RON exchange rate).  The time is takes for this process to be completed depends on the number of pages that must be verified and the volume of work in that moment, etc., though in principle the validations can be done within 24 hours.
3. The diplomatic representation or consulate in Spain of the country where the applicant is a citizen (eg. Romanian Embassy in Madrid) or that of the country where the document  proceeds from.
