"Certified photocopies" means that an authority has stamped and signed each copy page as confirmation that the copies are consistent with the documents submitted as original documents. This confirmation can be made by a Danish authority (e.g. local municipality, job centre, etc.) or by the institution / authority that issued the document, or by the embassy / consulate in Denmark of the country where the document is issued, or by a Danish embassy or a Danish consulate. Individuals can not verify copies. If you cannot send a certified copy, the competent authority can control the content and authenticity of the diploma, certificate and / or personal data.
You have to enclose certified translations of the essential documents (professional qualification, certificate of acquired rights, certificates of professional experience etc.). However, uncertified translations are accepted if you are a doctor, dentist, nurse, midwife, veterinarian or pharmacist from an EU/EEA country.
Standard documents such as identity cards, passports, etc., do not need to be translated. Documents issued in English, Norwegian or Swedish do not need to be translated. Documents issued in other languages must be translated into Danish or English. Some authorities also accept documents in German and French, and you should contact the competent authority if this is relevant to you. You may freely decide in which country inside the EU or EEA to get certified translations of the essential documents.
