What is a certified translation?2020-04-10T10:52:38-04:00

A certified translation is a word-for-word translation required for official use by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), universities, colleges, state or federal institutions and courts.

All our certified translations are issued in accordance with the regulations established by the USCIS, the institution that most frequently requires this type of document. A certified translation includes a certificate issued on our corporate letterhead signed by the translator and a U.S. Language Services representative in PDF format.

How much does it cost?2020-11-12T06:21:36-05:00

The price for a certified translation is $29.00 per page. No hidden fees.
Each page may contain up to 250 words or fewer including numbers. Pages may be letter size (8.5″ x 11″), A4 or smaller and one sided
For languages that use logograms, such as Chinese, Korean and Japanese, each character is considered a word.

How are the pages counted?2020-04-27T07:43:23-04:00

When you order a certified translation, the most significant variable is how the pages of the document are calculated. The number of physical pages in your original document is not what is being counted, instead it is the total word count.

Each page may contain up to 250 words. Pages may be letter size (8.5″ x 11″), A4 or smaller and one sided.

For example: A project with 2 physical pages that each contain 500 words (1,000 words total), is calculated as 4 pages (1,000 words ÷ 250 = 4 pages).

What happens if I don’t count the number of pages correctly?2020-04-10T10:48:37-04:00

Don’t worry. Our team reviews each order individually. If the number of pages is greater, we’ll contact you with instructions on how to proceed. If you ordered pages in excess, we’ll issue you a refund using the same payment method.

How long will it take to translate my document?2020-04-10T10:48:40-04:00

For most common languages, including Spanish, French, Portuguese, Russian and Chinese, you can expect to receive a 1-3 page translation in 1 business day. Larger projects (4 – 10 pages) can take up to 3 business days.

For orders in other language pairs, our team will review your documents and provide you with the delivery date once you place your order.
