Different Types of Translation Services

To help you find the perfect translation service for your needs, let’s discuss the translation services examples and the differences between Standard, Professional, and Certified translation services. Each different types of translation service address different requirements and ensures your documents are translated with precision and care. Let’s explore what each service offers.

Professional Translation Services

Certified Translation

When dealing with official procedures where your documents must be recognized by government bodies, educational institutions, or legal entities, our Certified Translation service is the ideal choice. This service is particularly vital for processes involving U.S. Immigration (USCIS), academic admissions, or court proceedings.

In a Certified Translation, the focus is on delivering a translation that exactly mirrors the original document. Our translators ensure a direct, word-for-word translation without any additions or omissions, preserving the document’s integrity. This precision is crucial for official documents, where even minor discrepancies can lead to complications.

Every certified translation we provide comes with a statement guaranteeing that a competent translator, fluent in both the source and target languages, completed the translation and that it is accompanied by a certification of accuracy. Additional services such as notarization and provision of original documents with ink signatures are also available to meet more stringent requirements.

Standard Translation

For non-official uses where it’s important to keep the document’s true meaning, our Standard Translation service is a great choice. This option is perfect for internal company documents, personal communications, or any material where formal certification is not mandated, but quality cannot be compromised.

This service provides translations that capture the essence and tone of the original content, ensuring that the final document reads naturally and accurately. Delivered in editable formats, these translations allow you the flexibility to make further adjustments or formatting changes as required by your specific needs.

Professional Translation

Our Professional Translation service is crafted for those who require expertise in language and specialized fields such as legal, medical, or technical sectors. This service is essential when the content to be translated involves complex terminology or concepts that require a professional’s understanding of the subject matter.

Translated by experts in relevant fields, each project undergoes a rigorous process to ensure the translation is not only correct linguistically but also appropriate in its professional context. This meticulous approach guarantees that the translated document serves its intended purpose effectively, bridging language gaps with precision and reliability.
