This thesis presents certifying system translations. This is a technique to guarantee the correctness of system translations. When conducting a translation of a system we compare for each translation the original and translated systems and decide whether the translation has been carried out correctly. This decision is based on a certificate generated during the translation process. Thus, we guarantee correctness of translations by verifying each translation run instead of the translation algorithm and its implementation.
