Many Singapore law firms will assist in getting the Grants (together with all other necessary documents) translated into English as part of their offering.

Once the documents have been translated, the Singapore lawyer will have to get the translator translating the documents to sign an affidavit confirming that he/she has translated the documents and that the translation is a true and accurate translation from Malay to English.
