Examples of such materials include court and medical documents for pharmaceutical and biotechnology testing.

Certified translations are almost always essential for legal formalities, such as documentation used in hearings.

Immigration is the main area that nearly always requires certified translation. If you are applying for a PR or citizenship in the US, it will likely need that all documents (such as your birth certificate) to be submitted in the country’s official language and that translations of these certificates and documents be certified.

Applications to colleges and universities also require certified translations of documents. Depending on the academic document procedures, you may be asked to submit the original grade statement along with a certified translation.

The translation needs to be done in a specific way, and the certificate of accuracy also needs to follow the rules of the institution requiring the translation. We are well-aware of such rules and when it comes to certified translation in English, we provide it with guaranteed acceptance.
