What does it mean to apostille a document in South Africa?

What does it mean to apostille a document in South Africa?

In Pretoria, Cape town, Johannesburg and Durban, the affixing of the Apostille Seal to a South African public document like a Birth Certificate where both countries have accepted the Hague Convention of 1961 means that a foreign country will recognize the authenticity of the South African public document without further governmental legalization.  The Apostille Seal does not verify the contents of the South African public document; it only verifies its authenticity as a public document from the country of origin.  If the country of origin of the public document has not accepted The Hague Convention of 1961, then further governmental legalization and official translation may be necessary.
