Article 37

  1. A party who wishes to invoke in a Member State a judgment given in another Member State shall produce:
    1. a copy of the judgment which satisfies the conditions necessary to establish its authenticity; and
    2. the certificate issued pursuant to Article 53.
  2. The court or authority before which a judgment given in another Member State is invoked may, where necessary, require the party invoking it to provide, in accordance with Article 57, a translation or a transliteration of the contents of the certificate referred to in point (b) of paragraph 1. The court or authority may require the party to provide a translation of the judgment instead of a translation of the contents of the certificate if it is unable to proceed without such a translation.
