Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Certified Translation and Document Translation?
A certified translation is one that has been completed, signed, and sealed by an official translator. Official documents that have been completely and accurately translated from the source language into the target language and then verified by a public notary are referred to as notarized translations.
What document types can I get translated?
You can translate any document translated including but not limited to, business letters & proposals, bank statements, insurance applications, birth certificates, divorce certificates , tax returns, marriage certificates, death certificates, adoption certificates , police clearance certificates, high school diplomas , college diplomas and many more.
Do certified translations expire?
If the original document hasn't changed or hasn't run out of time, the translation shouldn't expire or change over time. The translation is still valid even though the notary's or certified translator's signature has expired.
Do translations need to be certified for USCIS?
The USCIS requires certified translations of official papers for citizenship or naturalization application (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services).
How long does translation take?
Turnaround time depends on many factors including the word count, language pair, current demand, translator availability and complexity of the source document to name a few.
