Certification of important documents

When considering the opportunities to study abroad or start a new job in a foreign country, you are often required to present a whole series of documents. If the documents are to be recognized, they must be translated into the local language of the target audience or into an official international language, such as, English. However, as these are important documents issued by government institutions, educational establishments or previous employers, a simple translation is not enough. In such cases, a certified translation will be required. A certified translation is one that must meet the requirements of the target country, enabling it to be used for the purposes in formal procedures. It is important to note that, only publicly appointed and sworn translators will have the authority to issue a certified translation.

Receive an Individual quotation

Just as the documents to be translated vary in scope and degree of difficulty, so do the prices for the corresponding translation. It is also important to consider that the price of each translation will be dependent on the type of language required by the target audience. For instance, there will be an abundance of certified translators available for translating a document into English or Spanish. However, it becomes difficult to find a translator for infrequently used languages such as Dari or Latvian, where translations naturally become more expensive.

When calculating the price of certified documents, the following factors play a role:

  • Language combination
  • Size of document
  • Subject area or degree of difficulty of the text
  • Complexity of formatting
  • Desired delivery date (e.g. express translation)

A professional translation agency will calculate the price of a translation per word or line of the original text. This calculation is based on a standard line which contains 50 to 55 characters including spaces. It does not simply count the lines of the original layout. This would be unfair if, for example, the document has many headings that contain fewer than 55 characters but are calculated as a standard line. Instead, the translator divides the number of characters in the entire document by a factor of 55. This results in the number of standard lines, which are then multiplied by the line price.

Fixed Pricing
