What is a Private Power of Attorney?

A Power of Attorney is a legally binding document authenticated by the signatures of witnesses. It authorises the Authorised Party of their choice to act on their behalf in any official or unofficial matter. A Power of Attorney typically pertains to a specific purpose, such as an administrative or legal procedure. Feel free to contact BeneDictum Kft. if you need a translation of a power of attorney.

In a Private Power of Attorney, the name of the Authorising Party and of the Authorised Party are specified, along with what legal or financial rights the Authorised Party has. The scope of authority of the Authorised Party is generally valid for the duration of the Power of Attorney and may be revoked by the Authorising Party at any time.

A Private Power of Attorney can be used for various purposes, such as:

  • Transfer of entitlements: The Authorising Party authorises the Authorised Party to represent them in legal or financial matters, such as purchasing real estate, filing tax returns, managing a bank account, or dealing with inheritance.
  • Administration: The Authorising Party authorises the Authorised Party to handle their personal matters, such as driving license renewal, banking transactions, obtaining official documents or dealing with healthcare matters.
  • Emergencies: The Authorising Party authorises the Authorised Party to make decisions on their behalf in emergency situations such as when the Authorising Party requires surgery and is unable to act on their own behalf.

In the case of a Power of Attorney documented in a private writing, the Authorising Party personally signs the document, and it must be signed by two witnesses to be valid.

Who needs a translation of a Power of Attorney?

Usually, people who wish to work, study, travel, or do business abroad need a translation of a Power of Attorney. Foreign authorities often request official documents, such as Powers of Attorney, to be translated into the official language of the respective country.

In addition, individuals engaging with clients or partners abroad and need to translate documents that include Powers of Attorney may also need a translation.

Powers of Attorney are often legal documents, so it is crucial that the translation be accurate and certified. Accurate and reliable translation ensures that the client, as well as their rights and interests, are appropriately protected within the foreign legal system. Therefore, we encourage you to choose our BeneDictum Translation Agency, where Powers of Attorney documents are always translated by professionals who have the necessary language skills and legal expertise.

FAQ

What languages do you translate from/into?

English, German, French, Italian, Russian, Spanish, Ukrainian, Romanian, Polish, Czech, Serbian, Hebrew, Turkish, Croatian, Slovak, Slovenian, Portuguese, Chinese, Greek, Swedish, Danish, Arabic and Hungarian.

How long does it take to complete the translation?

The translation deadline depends on the needs of our client. When sending a quote, we provide three prices, normal, urgent and express, so you can choose the one that suits you best. We can prepare the translation even in one business day.

Can I rely on confidentiality for legal and corporate translations?

Of course, we treat all incoming documents confidentially and ask our partners to do the same. Third parties will only be given access to the document if you have placed an order or if it is essential for the quotation due to the language pair and/or editing. However, if deemed necessary, a confidentiality agreement may be signed.

How will the final price be calculated?

In the case of translations, the final price is usually calculated on the basis of the number of characters (with spaces) in the target document, i.e. of the translation

In individual cases, a different calculation may be applied (e.g. unit price or source language character price), but this will always be indicated in the quotation.

I have to submit the completed translation to an official body. Is Benedictum Kft authorised to prepare such technical translation?

Yes, our company is authorised to provide technical translations. However, it is important to note that, according to the effective version of MT Decree 24/1986 (VI.26.), we can only provide certified translations of company extracts, data to be entered in the Commercial Register and company documents for use in Hungary. For other documents, we can issue a translation certified for official use (“certified translation”), in which we certify that it has been prepared by a professional translator and that it is identical in all respects to the original. In such cases, we usually recommend asking the recipient entity whether they accept the translation prepared by us, or whether they insist on the certified translation issued by OFFI Zrt.

We also produce certified translations for foreign use. In such cases, the above restriction does not apply. Based on our experience, our translations are accepted.

When and how can I pay for the translation?

For the first order, half of the estimated price will be invoiced as a deposit, which you can pay in cash at our office (Budapest/Debrecen/Miskolc) or by bank transfer. We will start the translation as soon as we receive the payment. In this case, please provide your invoice data when placing the order!

If it is not your first order, you can pay the invoice of the entire amount in cash at our office in (Budapest/Debrecen/Miskolc) or by bank transfer.
