Certificate translations are required in a range of situations for those planning to move abroad or applying for a UK visa.

You may need a translation of your birth certificate if you are applying to an overseas academic institution, emigrating or getting married abroad. Death certificates are generally needed for inheritance matters, as evidence for the relevant foreign authorities when there are assets to be handled.

If you are moving abroad with your spouse, you may need to produce a translated marriage certificate, especially if you are planning to purchase property. If you get married in another country, a translated certificate is also needed for changing your name on official documents. Divorcing partners will need a translated divorce certificate if they got married in a different country or for the division of assets overseas.

In addition to linguistic skills, certificates require attention to detail to ensure that all names, dates and details are presented accurately. We ensure precision through our quality control checks before you receive the final document.

The layout of certificates varies according to the legal system, meaning that translators must be able to communicate these differences in a limited space. For instance, French marriage certificates state the chosen matrimonial regime (régime matrimonial) of the couple according to French law.

Experienced translators are accustomed to these variations and use appropriate strategies to ensure all the information is communicated effectively, drawing on their knowledge of the legal systems of the relevant countries.

Certificate Translation Prices

Document translation costs are normally calculated on a price-per-word basis, but also on the requested language. But why are some languages more expensive than others? The answer is simple: languages that are spoken by large numbers of people – like Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, English – tend to cost less per word. While less common languages, like Icelandic, Nepalese and Maori, generally cost more.

To give you some guidance, we have put together a document translation price list where you can find useful information regarding prices per page, estimated delivery times and additional details of the document to be translated.
