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.
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.
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).
