Apostille is an international stamp that certifies the legality of a particular document. The standard Apostille formation is attached to the document or is issued as an addition to it. The Apostille is placed only on original documents of the state standard or on their copies certified by a notary. Apostille cannot be placed on documents that are not issued by the state bodies.
Translation of documents with Apostille is a legal confirmation of the fact that it contains a certain document translated into the official language of a particular country, that is the officials of this country, their signatures and seals of organizations.
The apostilization procedure may vary, depending on the country for which it is being performed, and the type of the document. In any case, the document with Apostille must be translated, except for the fact that it is submitted to the Embassy of Ukraine in the country of destination.
The translation of Apostille may be necessary for both legal entities and individuals in the following cases:

Some countries, in addition to the translation of documents, require the Apostille attached to the translation as well, that is called double Apostille, after the stamp has been affixed.
Translation of documents with Apostille are divided into two types - for use in Ukraine, and those that are needed abroad.
