The purpose of swearing-in and public appointment is to make available particularly trustworthy authorised experts to the courts, authorities and public in Germany.

Interpreters and translators are authorised experts and are only sworn-in and publicly appointed when they have demonstrated their specialist knowledge.

The regulations in the various Federal States of Germany differ. A sworn translator publicly appointed is permitted to use a stamp and to issue certified translations.
