Vietnamese belongs to the Austroasiatic (South Asian) language group, which consists of 160 languages. However, only two of them, Vietnamese and Khmer (Cambodian), have the status of national language. With around 84 million speakers, Vietnamese thus accounts for the majority of the 120 million speakers of Austroasiatic languages. But languages such as Santari, Mundari, Ho, Kahsi and Mon also have millions of speakers who are comparatively widely dispersed among eastern India, Malaysia and Vietnam.

Although Vietnamese is not linguistically related to the Chinese languages, over 70% of Vietnamese vocabulary is derived from Chinese. For centuries, Chinese was the administrative language in Vietnam and Chinese characters were used. However, this changed with the French colonization during the 19th century, which introduced the Latin writing system supplemented by accents. Linguistically, French has also left its mark on Vietnamese. Loan words are for example báhn (from pain – “bread”) and so cô lâ (from chocolat – “chocolate”).

Vietnamese, like Chinese, Serbo-Croatian or Yoruba, is a tonal language. This means that pitch can change the meaning of a word. This is also where the dialects of Vietnamese differ significantly. The standard language is strongly based on the capital’s northern Vietnamese Hanoi dialect, while the central Vietnamese Huế dialect and the southern Vietnamese Saigon dialect differ mainly in the pronunciation of tones.

We offer the following services for Vietnamese:

Certified translation of Vietnamese documents

You grew up in Vietnam and now you want to live and work in Germany or vice versa? For occasions such as marriage, naturalization, application for parental allowance, studies, pension and many others, the authorities request a certified translation of your documents.

We will help you with the translation!

  • Originals are usually not required for the issuance of a certified translation, but you must be able to present them to authorities upon request.
  • Translations of documents are provided including certification by a translator sworn-in by a court in Germany.
  • Our translations for Vietnamese are recognized by all German authorities and offices.
  • We will send your translation by mail to the address of your choice in Germany.
  • Commission us online to translate your Vietnamese documents and process your orders electronically.
  • We can provide you with a digital copy in advance upon request.

A Statement of Comparability is an official document issued by the Central Office for Foreign Education (Zentralstelle für ausländisches Bildungswesen – ZAB). It assesses international higher education qualifications and ascertains the professional and academic legitimacy of candidates. This is intended to facilitate access to the German labor market and enable students to continue their studies in Germany. It is a comparative classification, but not a recognition.

For further details on the process of recognizing equivalency and the evaluation of your diplomas, please visit the official website of the Central Office for Foreign Education (Zentralstelle für ausländisches Bildungswesen) of the Standing Conference of the Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs of the Länder in the Federal Republic of Germany (Kultusministerkonferenz – KMK).

You can check the evaluation of your certificates and degrees in advance in the Anabin database.

You can also check the value of your foreign university qualification and research further information.

Information about degrees with university admission can also be found at Anabin. You can check under which conditions you can take up an undergraduate course of study in Germany with a foreign secondary qualification.

Depending on the federal state, other recognition and advisory offices are responsible for recognizing the equivalence of your degrees, certificates or diplomas from Vietnam. On Anabin you can find information not only about relevant authorities, but also about advisory bodies without direct recognition competence. They can provide you with information on numerous issues relating to recognition in Germany.

Vietnam is not part of the Hague Convention Abolishing the Requirement of Legalisation for Foreign Public Documents (Apostille Convention). Here, an apostille confirms the authenticity of the signature and, if applicable, the seal of the signatory, as well as their authority to issue the document.

Instead, Vietnamese documents usually need to be legalized in order to be used in Germany, but you should check this with the relevant authority beforehand. For legalization, you need the originals or copies from the appropriate registers (Bản Sao từ sổ đăng ký hộ tịch or Trích Lục). These must then be pre-certified by the Consular Department at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Hanoi or the Foreign Affairs Office in Ho Chi Minh City. Then, the documents, together with a translation into German, must be submitted to the German Embassy in Hanoi or the Consulate General in Ho Chi Minh City.

For more information, please contact the German Embassy in Hanoi or the Consular Section of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
