    However, nemá vypis z trestniho rejstøíku! is nonsense, vypis z trestnicko rejstøíku is the name of the dokument, while nemá zapis v trstnim rejstøíku

      This also makes no sense. A "certificate of character" is something
      given to a Boy Scout for being a good person and doing a lot of
      charitable work. I've just looked it up in a thesaurus, and its
      synonyms are "character reference" and "letter of recommendation",
      which are definitely not vypisy z trestniho rejstriku.

      I do see that in some places, like Canada, they do issue what is
      called a "Police Certificate of Character". However, that does not
      help to translate the phrase "nema vypis z trestniho rejstriku",
      because "Police Certificate of Character" is the name of the document,
      not the statement IN the document.

      The correct phrase is "has no criminal record" or "does not have a
      criminal record". Choose whichever one you want.
