We get this question on a daily basis. A certified translation is one performed by a professional translator, who attests in writing to the completeness and accuracy of the translation. In some cases, you may be asked to make sure this certification is notarized.

A notarized translation is one in which the translator swears in front of the notary that the translation is complete and accurate. The notary charges a fee for this service.

Many official institutions, including most universities, require translations to be notarized. However, the USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) no longer requires notarized translations.

Types of documents most often requiring certified:

  • Birth Certificates
  • Visa Application Documents to Countries Outside the U.S.
  • Marriage Certificates
  • University Transcripts
  • Death Certificates
  • Contracts and legal documents

No. We work with any legible/scanned copy of your document. The fastest way to get started is to email us the document. You can use a scanner or even a digital camera to take a high-quality photo of your certificate or other document. Also the USCIS (United States Citizenship and Immigration Services) no longer requires original documents.

TransMean can send you an electronic copy (PDF) as soon as it’s ready. For a notarized translation we can mail the document from our Islamabad Office to anywhere in the world (courier/delivery charges may apply according to destination).

Kindly send us your document for a free quote and estimated time. Normally 1-page or 2-page document takes just a couple of days, but it does depend on your desired language.

Please note that the notary’s signature will delay delivery of your translation by at least one business day.

For certified translations, the cost depends on the amount of pages translated. Our cost is $24.99 per page. A page is defined as 350 words or fewer including numbers on a single sheet. Unsure of your page count? Request a quote.

An excess of 350 words on a page would be considered additional pages and priced accordingly at the same rate of $24.99 per every 350 words.
